My daughter is getting married...
When you are paying someone to be of service at a wedding, do you also send them an invitation?
Examples: The organist or horn players for your ceremony. The minister performing your ceremony. The wedding coordinator. An acquaintance (but not close friend)that plays the piano at your reception. The band members (you know them, but they are not close friends.)
This is not about having to spend money to send out an invitation, or worrying about extra reception food. I am concerned that the person may think that the invitation is asking for a wedding gift, or worse, expecting them to give their service for free - as a wedding gift to the bride and groom. I don't want that, but also don't want to go against possible etiquette, by not sending an invitation.
Does anyone have experience with this?
