Ask Wednesday

Dear Wednesday,
Our officiant is a really nice person and we like him a lot, but we only met him recently. We are paying for his services to officiate the ceremony. Do we have to invite him to the reception as well?

The traditional etiquette is to invite the officiant to the reception dinner. That being said, he is probably used to receiving invitations and also used to politely declining. Since you have not known him for very long and do not have a close relationship with him, the chances are that he’ll either decline to attend the reception or stay for a short while during the cocktail hour. If he does accept, you should sit him at a table with the parents or close relatives.
