This Wedding Invitation is Causing a Ruckus On Social Media for Splitting Guests Into RSVP Groups

Group A, B and the dreaded C

It started when Mary von Aue, editorial director at the Observer, shared a wedding invitation:

Dear friends and family,

Please understand that our venue is limited in the number of guests we will be able to accommodate for our wedding day. As much as we would love to have each and every one of you join us on our big day, we are forced to split our guests into groups to ensure we do not surpass our capacity restrictions.

Group A: Please RSVP as soon as possible. We appreciate your promptness as we will be able to extend any vacant seats to any additional guests.

Groups B & C: Please keep a close watch on our wedding website for notice that we have space available. If you already know that you are unable to join us, it is helpful that you decline via the RSVP function on our website.

If possible, we encourage our guests to hire a babysitter for the night and leave your children at home. As much as we love your kids, we are doing our best to make space for all of the guests we can. We also ask our single guests to forgo their plus one if possible. We appreciate your understanding.

Mary, who shared the invitation on social media, was in Group A (assuming it was her invitation, that is). My Queen Padma Lakshmi and author Jessica Valenti both shared the invitation with their followers.

While many criticized the invitation for splitting guests into A, B, and C tiers, others didn’t think there was anything wrong with it, especially due to venue restrictions and COVID-19. What are your thoughts? Is this invitation over the top and lacking etiquette or is it completely reasonable?

The following are all replies to the third source and original tweet:

ONTD, would you attend a wedding during the pandemic?
