Thinking about who to invite to your wedding? I have never been a big believer in the saying that a wedding is all about the bride and groom. Sure, of course it is essentially ‘your day’ but you’re sharing it with other people, they’re spending money on outfits, presents and travel. Being a wedding guest is not a cheap exercise for anyone, but then again, neither is planning a wedding. So the question becomes – who do you actually invite? FGB is here to help.

I’ve heard that if sent an invitation, some respond with a cute little card or a sweet gift so it’s worth a try. I personally would love it if Prince Charming and Cinderella popped in!
