First of all, congratulations on getting the invitation! If you receive a wedding invitation, you should count yourself lucky.
People usually only invite those they hold most dear to participate in their wedding ceremonies and receptions.
There are a ton of details. However, you can make things easier on your host by sending back a wedding invitation as early as possible.
Being a Good Wedding Guest
If you’re not going to the wedding, the polite thing to do is still send back the invitation to let the host know that you won’t make it.
When You’re Not Going to Make the Wedding
When you send back the invitation, it’s a perfect time to include a short note of either thanks, encouragement, or congratulations to the wedding couple.
