Want to invite more guests - Need ideas!
I have never been one to believe in "B Lists". In my opinion, you either want someone at your wedding or you don't ... however, after our final guest list was made our parents asked about some other people being invited. These are people that we'd love to be there but couldn't send an invite to because we had reached our max amount of possible invitees with the original list.
Now that our RSVP's are coming in, we see that we WILL have space to invite more people and still be within our max capacity. My question is how can I invite them and not make them feel like they were an after thought.
Our RSVP date has passed so if I send an invite now, I think they'll realize something is weird. I'm thinking of handwriting a note saying something like, "As everyone knows there are certain formalities you have to follow when having a wedding - like inviting those 3rd cousins that you haven't seen in over 2 years and can't really remember what their names are ... Now that that is done we are able to invite people who we really want to celebrate with us, like you! We hope you can join us!"
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this? I DO NOT want people to feel like they were on a B List but I also don't want to NOT invite them just because I don't want them to feel like that.
Any ideas/suggestions welcomed!
