HOW MANY TO INVITE
You can invite as many as you like, the average number is up to 30, there is no rules as every wedding is different .
In tradition the groom’s parents pay for this, but in these modern times the bride and groom pay for this. If your on a budget, a BBQ or affordable buffet, can be a great way to celebrate with your party, or maybe cocktails and canapés in a lovely hotel. you don’t have to be flashy it’s just a nice thought, especially as your guests have most likely spent a lot on your wedding already.
The venue you choose can literally what or where you wish, a BBQ at your house, or a formal venue, or maybe a pub venue, or a lovely hotel with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The invite can be what ever you fancy, a wedding dinner e- invite is the best way, or if you have the budget, send invitations by mail, this may be better for the non computer savvy persons, or you could create a facebook event.
The dinner should be casual and fun and no rules, just a dinner get together and if anyone wants to make any speeches, that is not making a speech at the wedding, then this is their chance, be laid back with this, and make it a non stressful fun night in anticipation of the big day.
