My sister and her husband have been invited to a wedding a considerable drive from where they live. The invite is for the ceremony at 1pm and the evening reception at 8pm but not for the drinks and dinner in between.
Her husband thinks that's a bit insulting and says he has no intention of driving miles and forking out for a hotel in order to spend 6 hours hanging around a strange town with nothing to do.
My sister doesn't really want to go either but doesn't want to offend the b and g's parents who are friends of theirs.
I agree with my brother in law and actually find invitations like this quite rude. I can totally understand inviting a group of colleagues or the gang from the rugby club or whatever to the evening reception. But expecting people to travel a long distance and omitting them from the middle part of the day just seems a bit off.
