I'm wondering if any past of future brides have had to deal with this situation... Unfortunately, we had to cut our guest list down ALOT to fit our budget and I know some people will be upset when they don't receive an invitation but there was nothing we could do about it. I'd like everyone to come to the ceremony (as that's supposed to be the most important part) but I don't know how to invite people to just the ceremony and not the reception... Our reception is only small, mainly immediate family and a few close friends each and that's it... But we want the ones who we couldn't invite (although we would have liked too) to know they are welcome to come to the ceremony without insulting them by not inviting them to the reception. Any suggestions?
