Who should you invite to a wedding reception?

Your wedding is the time to be surrounded by the people who love and support you. Include your closest family and friends. Your venue will dictate your guest list, so you may have room to invite a few colleagues and some extended family, too. Once you’ve finalized your guest list, our useful RSVP tracker will help you keep tabs on the guests, and guest messaging makes it easy for them to ask questions ahead of the big day.
