I remember being invited to the wedding and not the reception after I had kicked in for a wedding present with a co-worker (the bride was also a co-worker, not really a friend).  When the bride found out I kicked in for the present, I was suddenly invited to the wedding, but initially, not to the reception.  When the co-worker asked why I wasn't invited to the reception, I received a call inviting me to the reception.  Considering the wedding AND the reception were in the same place, I thought it would look tacky for me to jump up and leave after "you may kiss the bride".

We are no longer on speaking terms.

Good because I don't like this person!!! We had a damn FAMILY MEMBER who pulled the "Invited to the wedding and not reception" bull. This was 6 years ago and everyone is still angry.

I went to a wedding like that. I was invited to both the wedding and the reception. They had 2 sets of invites. One invited you to the wedding and didn't mention the reception and the other said that you are formally invited to stay after the ceremony for a reception. It was on some VIP type mentality. I thought it was a little tacky but I got to eat so.....

The reception was boring though. The bride was so stiff. Her hubby sung a song that he wrote for her and she just stood there like a deer caught in headlights. She is just an uptight person though. I wanted to partay!! But it was just a sit down dinner with soft gospel music playing in the background.

I went to a reception once that didn't allow any dancing because the bride was christian and thinks that dancing is of the devil. That shyt was so boring. I left early. Never again.

If I felt like being nosey...yeah I'd go. I wouldnt have a gift in hand but sure if I have nothing else to do.


ETA: I'm damn sure not getting dressed up for something I didn't get a full invitation to.

When I was 27, my coworker around the same age told around 4 of his  work buddies including me that he and the bride had maxed out on the budget so couldnt invite us to the wedding & reception, but wanted us to see him walk down the aisle and he didnt expect a gift, didnt want us to bring gifts.
I didnt want to go b/c i felt that the wedding was for fam & close friends, but my homegirl insisted. I also didnt feel like putting on a suit for a 45min service, but she wasnt trynta hear me tho.
we went and the ceremony was nice. I was ready to go home right after. the groom was like, noo, there is open bar cocktail hour come thru. I told my homegirl that if we go to drink, then we are the tacky, inappropriate ones. she insisted b/c she had traveled from nyc to nj and wanted to see the venue. i was pissed & embarrased. we are at the cocktail hour and then when the people were leaving to get seated, we looked real dumb dipping out. People were yelling out , "hey wait - where are you going, it is time for them to seat us, you have to go this way to the room over here to get seated". we're ignoring the yelling, looking stupid. The groom looked embarrasedLOL I wasnt i was like eff it, i told you that we shoulda dipped right after the service lol

I think its wrong.  Just don't invite a person period.  if I wasn't important enough to get an invite to the reception, then it shouldn't matter if I go to the wedding.

Plus huge weddings seems like huge headaches. It's one of the things my ex and I could not see eye to eye on. His parents wanted a huge Nigerian style wedding with like 400 people that I wouldn't even know and I'm thinking 25-50 people tops in Vegas or Greece.


I loved that part!
and I walked alone (dad deceased)
