Do members of the bridal party receive invitations?

A Yes! Proper etiquette dictates that wedding invitations go to everyone invited to the wedding, no matter how close a friend or relative they are or, as in the case of members of the bridal party, if it’s implied that they are coming to the wedding. Who else should get an invitation? Everyone who received a save-the-date and those who were invited to gift-related parties, like your shower and engagement party. It’s a snub not to also invite them to the wedding.

If you want to feed your wedding vendors, don’t worry about sending them invitations. All they need to know is what time they have to be there and that they can eat when they have a break.
