Question Is it rude....

..... If you are invited to a wedding, but have to work on the day of the wedding, to only turn up to the reception, but not the actual ceremony ?

Just would like to know before i decide what to do :)

Cheers

Chris

Re: Is it rude....

If you have to work then its not really your choice...


Look at it as "at least i'm trying to get there at all" instead of am I stooging them!

Re: Is it rude....

It depends on whose wedding it is. i.e. family or friends.

If its family - then its usually obligatory to go.

If its friends - I guess work may take precedence over the ceremony.

Did you ask for time off straight away when the invitation was given? It all depends on how important you think this person is getting married and how he would feel.

Re: Is it rude....

Wedding ceremony and reception are usually in 2 different places (requiring a drive between them), so no one would even really notice , unless its a very small wedding that you were not at the ceremony and only at the reception.

Just RSVP and say yes, make a note only reception if you want to, don't stress about it :0)

Having only gotten married about 12 months ago,I would have been happy for people who meant something to me to be invited in the first place, to have made the reception only if comitments made it that way, would be happy having them there, thats why I invited them in the first place.

Re: Is it rude....

my sister did that at my own wedding. She only showed up at the reception and everyone at the ceremony was wondering where she was during the wedding photos. I didnt even know and it was quite embarassing trying to explain her where abouts. She showed up telling me she had to work or something. Which for all I know she was probably telling the truth. Still, for family invited, there really is no excuse (apart from accident or death) to miss your own brothers wedding, is there? Or for the fact that no notice was given. i.e. a phone call or message.

Like I said before, it depends on who the wedding is for. But remember its common curtisy to let the groom know your initial intentions 'if' you were formally invited so there is no confusion or irritation when you show up outta the blue. I think that would be fair to the bride & groom who are in the end, paying for your company to enjoy their special day.

Re: Is it rude....

Ha, I did this a few months ago

It was only my wife's friend though, I turned up half way through the ceremony (waited outside the church of course). SO I was there when they all came out to take photos and talk to everyone before they went off to take their wedding photos. I got hammered at the reception though, and had to go to Oran Park the next day for the V8's. and We Won!
