Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Brides and grooms have plenty of things to do in preparation for their wedding day, and with a new trend emerging, they may have one more. Apparently, engaged couples are now sending announcements which inform people they will not be invited to the upcoming wedding (http://thestir.cafemom.com/love_sex/149318/wedding_announcements_telling_people_theyre).
Despite the slowed economy of recent years, the average wedding budget is still well over $25,000. Add in costs incurred by those who show up under the presumption they are invited, and the final bill can easily break an already strained budget. It is speculated that perhaps this is the reason behind the new wedding announcement trend. Weddings are indeed expensive. However, sending a formal announcement to tell someone they are not invited may be too costly of a risk to take.
“People should never assume they are invited to a person’s wedding, no matter how close they once were,” said Brett Reynolds, CEO of Wedding.com. "With that said, sending an “anti-invitation” may be humiliating for the person on the receiving end. A private conversation is probably best for addressing a situation like this."
