It's a common dilemma faced by couples when planning a wedding, someone has not quite made the final wedding guest list but you still want to celebrate with them. Is it ok to invite people to your Hens or Bucks party even if they are not invited to your wedding? Head Stylist Alanah explains.
Lovers, we are asked this all the time. The fact is, every wedding guest list has a line that needs to be drawn. Whether the line is not inviting work colleagues, only inviting people both you and your partner have met, or you have a hard cap on your numbers because you fell in love with a venue that can only accommodate a certain number. Chances are there will be one or two people who don't make the wedding guest list that you still want to celebrate with.
Is it rude to invite people to your hens or bucks who won't be invited to your Wedding? Absolutely not! Just like your wedding day itself, your Hens or Bucks should be exactly what you want it to be. If that means having a cocktail and toasting to finding your Lover with your work bestie, then that is what you should do!
Being honest will avoid confusion. It's always good to explain to those you would like to include in your Hens or Bucks who are not invited to your wedding day that they are not invited to the main event but you would still love to celebrate with them. We can almost guarantee that they will be excited to celebrate you and your Lover in any way you would like to include them.
