    I’m confused why this is even a question.

    I don’t know.  I say if you have the room in your guest list, then do it.  You have still kept in some sort of touch with them for a long time so I don’t think there is anything wrong with inviting them.  Now if your guest list is limited and there are people you would much rather have there to celebrate, don’t feel obligated to invite them.

    I narrowed down my guest list by asking myself who I wanted in my future, not who was a part of my past.

    I wouldn’t but I am known to hold a grudge.

    You could write the couple a nice note to tell them that you appreciate how they helped you all those years ago and that in part because of that help you’re now happily moving on with your life. Just say thank you for the help getting where you are now, and wish them well. Such a note might help you feel like they understand you are grateful for the help they gave you, and if well written, they might just think it’s a nice to get a random, happy note saying their efforts were appreciated.

    They helped you as a child, that doesn’t mean you need to invite them to watch you become a married woman and eat a sitdown dinner with your nearest and dearest. I wouldn’t invite them to your wedding. They’re basically strangers now, right?

    Are you inviting a lot of other people from your church? If so, and you choose to exclude this couple, that may be more awkward than if you’re only inviting a few, select close friends from your church.

    Are you inviting other members of this group? Will they be noticibly absent?
