I am asking here because everyone is frank and honest. Besides there is no other place on this site for these types of questions. I am having a disagreement with my mother & MIL about the following:
- Are you supposed to invite people to attend both or can you just invite them to the party? The church where the ceremony will be held is over an hour away from where the party will be held. I say you invite them to both and let them choose. MIL & my mom say to just invite them to the party. WDYT?
- Since the ceremony is scheduled for noon I feel like I should serve food not just snacks at the party. MIL and my mom think there should just be snacks and cake. The party would start around 2 pm and if they attend the ceremony they wouldn't get to have lunch.
- Do you have to invite everyone who was invited to the baby shower? I wanted to keep this family + close friends only. My mother and MIL insist that I invite everyone who was invited to the shower. They have even suggested I invite everyone who was invited to our wedding last year. I do not think that is the norm. Am I wrong?
Thank you for your advice and input!
