Some people have been making a big deal of who got invitations before other people, and Kay and I would like to set the record straight: the first invitations to go out were the ones for people who lived furthest away from the church where we’re having the wedding, not who was more important or who we wanted to see most. In fact, our parents’ invitations just went out, and I don’t think anyone will take offense if I say we love them the most.
We prioritized people who lived the furthest away because we knew they’d need to make travel plans, book hotel rooms and the like. Our friends and family who live in the Capitol District can just wander over to the church the afternoon of the wedding. 🙂
