Hi, Dumb question. Do you verbally invite the minister to the reception or send them an invitation? Thanks

We sent them an invitation - but my mum hand delivered it and then he was unable to marry us (due to ill health) so we sent an invitation to the new minister, then had to ask them at the rehearsal if they were coming as they hadnt replied! But they did come (just for the meal( and she seemed genuinely pleased to be asked. We didnt sit her at the top table, just at a table with people from the church that she would know a bit.

I thought verbally would have been ok but now on reading these post Id better include our priest in the invitation list!!!

Yes, you have to send them an invitation - it's called a courtesy invitation as it is generally assumed they will attend.

I think you send them an invitation alright even though it is assumed they will be invited, as Betsy May said it is a courtesy invite.
