So, there’s this girl who is the daughter of a family friend, and she and I grew up together from maybe the ages of 11 or so till about late high school. We didn’t go to high school together because we didn’t live in the same town, but we spent a lot of weekends together when our parents would hang out with each other. Towards the end of high school and as we went to college we kind of went our separate ways, and didn’t talk to or see each other for about 10 years. I still knew what was going on with her life though, because our moms are friends.
We ran into each other 3 years ago at a family function that her parents attended and spent a couple hours catching up. Since then we kept in touch only sporadically via email, and had one telephone conversation. We are friends on facebook but have never sent messages to each other on it.
I had decided not to invite her, or at least to hold off until I had received some RSVPs, but now I feel kind of like I should. I don’t know. The thing is though, my wedding is less than 4 weeks away. Would there be a nice way of inviting her so that it didn’t seem like an afterthought? I can’t get away with saying “I mailed you the invitation, it must have got lost in the mail” because we don’t have her address and she knows that. So I’d need a better way to phrase it if I did invite her. At this point would it be more rude to invite her late than not at all?
If it helps, she lives about 3 hrs away from the wedding location, but I think she frequently makes that drive so I don’t believe the travel would be a huge deal.
