GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
It's the day some soon-to-be brides wait for all their lives, their wedding day.
"It's one stop shop for a bride," Mary Sims Costigan said.
She's the owner of Wedding 101 in downtown Greenville. Costigan consults with couples on just about everything wedding and does it for free.
"We've got photographers, venues and invitations," Costigan said.
The invitations and guest list is where she said it can get tricky for brides-to-be. They have to determine who to scratch off the list and who to keep.
"A lot of times, they aren't familiar with how much they should budget for their wedding," Costigan said.
And now with social media and the world of sharing, Facebook friends know when you're engaged. But, sometimes you're really just acquaintances with that so-called "friend" who may expect an invitation. In fact, the new trend is to send "you're not invited invitations."
"I'm not sure if I'm OK with this 'you're not invited' thing," Costigan said.
According to reports, invitations and email alerts are filling up mailboxes and inboxes because brides-to-be don't know how to break the news to those who aren't invited.
"There's no need to be rude," Anne Courtright said.
She said when she got married, she and her husband kept it classy.
"I like the old fashioned method of simply stating 'we're having a nice, intimate wedding,'" Courtright said.
Cristina Kotschate said she handled a runaway guest list by being honest.
"In my case I just kind of said that I was going to have a very small ceremony," Kotschate said.
Costigan said brides should just have a conversation with those who won't get invitations.
"Go through and pick who are the people they must have at their wedding," Costigan said.
