Small weddings have become more and more popular over the years. For many couples, deciding on a having a micro-wedding is a tough choice because there are so many people that support and love them.
Typically, we advise couples to only invite wedding guests to pre-wedding celebrations such as your wedding shower and bachelorette party. However…if you’re having a very small wedding, with just a few witnesses, it’s perfectly acceptable to celebrate with friends and family who won’t be at the wedding.
How to Word Bridal Shower Invitations if Guests Aren’t Invited to the Wedding
If you’re throwing a bridal shower and inviting people who aren’t invited to the wedding, be transparent and upfront about this. It’s an excellent way to communicate that the couple is having a small wedding and avoid hurt feelings.
Here’s a great example of how to word a bridal shower for a family-only wedding:
