Wedding evening invitation

251 designs

When you’re getting married you want to share the occasion with all your favourite people. However, it’s not always possible to have all of your guests attend every part of your celebration. If this is the case, evening wedding invites are the perfect solution.

A wedding evening invitation ensures that while the guestlist for your ceremony can be as long as you’d like, the reception and meal thereafter includes only your closest family members and friends.


What Are Evening Wedding Invites?


An evening wedding invite is a special, second invitation that you’ll give to your inner circle of friends and family. While all the guests receive a regular invitation to the marriage ceremony, only a select number of special people receive an evening invitation for the reception or meal that comes afterwards.

This elegant invitation ensures that your guestlist remains concise, and you reserve the most intimate part of the celebration for people who love and know you best.

An evening wedding invite can be very useful for soon-to-be-spouses who have a lot of extended friends and family attending the ceremony but who want to keep the reception small and familiar. That way, nobody gets left out of the ceremony, but only your nearest and dearest have the privilege of attending the post-ceremony meal.

Why You Need Evening Wedding Invites


An evening wedding invite is so much more than just a pretty piece of paper. It serves the important function of letting your close friends and family know about the post-ceremony reception.

If you and your partner are very sociable and have a long guestlist but have booked a smaller venue it might be difficult to accommodate everyone at the reception. However, it’s not necessary to invite everyone back for the post-ceremony meal. Most guests will be happy to simply attend your ceremony – the reception can be happily reserved for parents, siblings, best friends, and anyone with whom you share a particularly close relationship.

Perhaps you have a lot of friends and acquaintances that you’d like to invite to the ceremony but aren’t quite close enough with to invite to the reception. Inviting a smaller group of family members and friends to an evening reception is perfectly acceptable and not at all uncommon. You and your partner are entitled to reserve the post-ceremony reception for as small or big a group as you would like.

An evening wedding invite gives you the power to assert more control over the reception dinner (or lunch or breakfast) and makes sure your big day - and night - as a whole runs smoothly.


Personalised Evening Invitations Keep Your Wedding Intimate


It’s your wedding – you and your partner have every right to be selective about who partakes in the after-ceremony reception. Keeping your wedding reception an intimate occasion is a great way to enjoy your celebratory meal with the ones you love.

Cotton Bird’s extensive range of evening wedding invite designs are ideal for helping couples to curate a guestlist that meets their needs and keeps their meal cosy, close-knit, and unforgettable.
