For the guests you're almost positive that they won't show up

I wouldn’t say anything. There’s no way of phrasing it that can’t be misinterpreted as “I don’t actually want you to come; I just invited you out of obligation.” If she mentions that she’s not sure she can make it or something, THEN you can respond with a bunch of “oh of course, I completely understand, and I won’t be put off at all if you can’t make it. I just love you and wanted to invite you!”

I’m in a similar boat so I’d love it if anyone has any suggestions. Because I’m getting married so far from where I currently live (as some background FI and I moved to Australia about 18 months ago but our families and many friends are still in Ireland), there are friends inOz who I would like to invite but I don’t want them to feel obligated to travel and I definitely don’t want them to feel like they’re invited as a gift grab. I know some of my friends would love an excuse to visit Ireland, but its still a lot to expect.
