we're not doing formal invites as this will be immediate family and our bff's- so about 26ish people total. its ok to not do invites right? we just started a wedding website with all of the guest information on it (hotels close to the restaurant, cool things to do with the kids, information of the time/place). and although dinner is at a very nice restaurant, its not one of those things where we need to know more than a day ahead of time what a final head count is.
we're not doing a registry either. i mean, we have everything we want and need and plenty of $$ to go get it ourselves. but is it RUDE to not do one.... i.e. ... i dont want people to feel that they have to give a gift. but if they do want to give one, i dont want them to feel like we purposely didn't do a registry to get "cash" ... we dont want that either. but i would never want to dictate to someone what they should do i.e. give a gift/not give a gift/dictate what kind of gift, etc. (and i dont judge anyone who decides to do things differently than myself, fwiw, i dont think there are hard and fast rules about this stuff anymore)
so i guess my question is: is it rude that we didn't do invites since its so small. also, is it ok to not do a registry? i just want to make sure i'm not donig anything that would make a guest feel uncomfortable or something that would put them off.
