    Hi all,
    I'm getting married in a cathedral and then having reception elsewhere and going to be keeping day guests to family only apart from best mates and this has meant about 100! Plus ones and other family and friends are then invited to evening. However someone mentioned about putting something in the evening guest invites about being welcome to see us marry which Is a nice idea but I kinda think we are then saying buzz off until the evening lol
    Has anyone ever done this?
    Or been invited like this ?
    How would you word it?

    Thanks

    Many years ago when I was first getting married to my ex, this was pointed out to me by my college friends. They said they could attend the church and then go away until an evening do.

    I understand what you mean though in that it's like invite them to that then they have to entertain themselves for a few more hours before coming back.

    I'd leave it, just invite the evening guests and if they ask you about the Church then say they are welcome.

    I think it can come across a bit funny inviting them to the Church but then not the rest

    I agree with Donna i'd feel a little awkward going to the church then leaving to then go back to the evening reception xx

    I think it can get very complicated. I'd only do it for people you really want to see you get married but can't afford for the entire day. And even then I'd sit down with them and explain rather than in the invite x

    Yeah I agree, I wouldn't put it in the invite but when speaking to them tell them that they are more than welcome to come to the Church to see you if they want.
