Wedding Guests: Invite Wedding Guests to Ceremony but Not Reception?

Q:

My wedding venue can only hold 100, but I can invite as many as 200 to the wedding. How do I word the invitations?

A:

Stick with the 100 figure for both events. How would you feel if you were invited to a ceremony but not the reception? Guests might assume they were only invited because they would send a gift, or that they were on the B-list and aren't important enough to celebrate with the couple and their families at the reception. If you're set on inviting 200, you might want to investigate larger reception sites. But if you're definite on the reception site, bite the bullet and cut your guest list.
