You guys haven’t spoken in two years. I wouldn’t invite them personally. Doesn’t sound like you really want to, and your day won’t be made any better by their presence, so no.. 

You don’t have to invite everyone who’s wedding you’ve attended

No, you don’t have to. There isn’t a reciprocity rule for etiquette.

No, I don’t think so.

Etiquette Snob here…

Agree with what Americano: wrote, altho “reciprocity” is the norm when it comes to Social Occasions / Obligations, the same isn’t necessarily true for Weddings.

So invite them only if you truly would LOVE to see them there.

I wouldn’t invite them.

I didn’t invite my college roommate to my wedding even though I went to hers 5 years ago. Haven’t spoken since.

I read somewhere that you only have to reciprocate if you attended their wedding in the past year.
