Really need some help with this. We are getting married at our college chapel and it only holds 165 people to the max. (it holds 150 but then can get an extra 15 in there i was told). Our guest list is at 235 and I'm assuming 20% won't show, which still puts me at the 188 mark. Which leaves us no choice but to invite some guests to the reception only.
Is this rude? Some people told me no, I personally have never been invited to a reception only wedding. We were going to word the invites something like (this is not exact verbiage): please celebrate with us at our reception after an iminiate ceremony.... is this okay or would people be offended?
We are not willing to change our ceremony site. Thanks for the help!!!!
