Cocktail Reception Plus Ones

Marie, on January 16, 2024 at 13:34 Posted in Wedding reception 0 3
I would like for guests to be able to have plus ones at our cocktail style reception. However, to keep costs low and have the day remain intimate, I would prefer to have them come later into the night once the reception program has concluded. So really they would only be there for dancing and drinks.

Would this be a good idea? Most of our guests live in the same city as the venue and anyone travelling in would be able to bring the plus one for the whole duration.

If it’s a good idea, how would you go about wording it in the invitation?

    I unfortunately agree. I just think it's a little awkward for someone's partner to have to come later to the event.

    If you're not willing to let them attend your ceremony or can't afford to feed them, then don't invite them. If you're going to invite someone, invite them for the whole thing.

    I see where you're coming from on your end but if I was a guest at a wedding but my plus one couldn't come until later I would be sort of upset in a way. But that's just me
