I just recently got engaged last month and we are slowly planning our wedding.
We found this gorgeous ceremony site and we are planning on inviting 100-150 people to the ceremony (hopefully more like 100).
Here's our "issue" though, we cannot afford to feed all 100-150 people and we were thinking for supper to just have immediate family (15-20 people tops).
Is it rude to invite people to the ceremony and then hope that they show up for the dance/dessert portion of the night? How would I phrase that on an invitation?
I would love to feed everybody if I could, but at $20-$30 a plate for 100-150 people, that would end up being almost half of our budget.
