WWYD - baptism invitations
j9ween2 posted:
I am starting to work on DD2's baptism stuff. For the other 2 kids I have sent invitations to DH's family that lives far away & that we know will not attend. They do not respond to it so I'm thinking of not sending them the invite this time. WWYD?

which of these do you like?

I like 2 and 4 the best.
I would skip sending them to the ones that didn't respond for your other two.

I like 3 & 5. I agree don't send anything to those relatives unless DH objects.

I would still send the invite to the ones who don't respond. You know they won't come so what's the big deal if they don't respond? I have family who don't respond to all invitations but they still get sent invitations out of courtesy.

Also, if they find out about the baptism from someone else, they might wonder why they weren't invited even though they had no intention of going.

I like #3.

I would send an invatiation to everyone you sent invitations to before. It's not worth the aggravation if they get annoyed for not receiving one, even if they aren't going to come.

People are funny- they still want to be asked even if they don't respond.

I agree with PP about including the non RSVPers. I couldn't look at the links at my desk ;0

I like 2 or 3. The pink with the bow is my fave followed closely by the purple.

I would send to people who don't respond just because if it were my family they would get all bend out of shape for not having been invited. It just saves the hassle of having to explain why they weren't invited.

I would send them the invite just to avoid any drama. That way they dont turn around and say "we didnt go because we were not invited".

If you are still looking around for invites check this website out:

I ordered DD's baptism invites from there.
