I don’t think we’ll stay close friends. Maybe Facebook friends, but we don’t hang out when we’re not at work or anything. Her last day is next Friday and my reception isn’t until 9/22. We’re very limited on space, because we’re having a backyard BBQ and the tables/canopies can accomodate no more than 120 seated guests and we have over 150 on the invite list (including out of town guests, many of whom will not travel for a backyard BBQ). I’m really thinking she won’t notice or be offended if she doesn’t get an invite. It would knock off 4 from the invite list (she has two kids). Thoughts? Am I way off base?

If you sent an STD she should get an invite. You asked her to save the date for your wedding – it’s not contingent on her working at the same company.
at least that’s how I see it.

@GroovyHippieChick: This +1. My sentiments exactly. “It’s not contingent on her working at the same company.”

i agree – you should still extend the invite. If you two are not close as the ceremony nears perhaps she will decline the invitation on her own will. I know I probably would.

Did you address the save the date to “Mrs. Suchandsuch and family”?
If not, I say just send an invite to “Mr. and Mrs. Suchandsuch” and just hope that she won’t come. She might not.
I wouldn’t not send an invite to someone after they already got the save the date

Thanks guys. I’m a little worried about crowding. I guess I let that cloud my judgement. I’ll send the invite and hopefully she’ll politely decline. If we end up with too many people, we’ll have to put up an additional canopy in the front yard. I’ll make her sit there. HA, just kidding.
