No, the invitation is not to the wedding. It is to the open house reception. The invitation was on a post card and there is nothing about an RSVP. We are not, I guess, invited to the ceremony itself.
I'm not sure whether to be insulted or not.
Perhaps this is the "latest thing" in weddings but it just seems a little tacky to have an open house reception. I've just never heard of such a thing. I don't believe this is an attempt to save money, by the way, as the reception is being held at the country club - and that is not a cheap venue.
I guess we'll be expected to give the couple a gift. :-/
Does anyone have any idea what would be expected in this situation? I'm sort of baffled!
