D! you’ve got much bigger things to worry about than the feelings of people who you don’t really talk to anymore and who make you feel bad. they’ll find out soon enough. you can’t invite everyone who you’ve ever met!

Don’t invite them.  He’ll figure it out when the invitation doesn’t arrive.  It’s not like he’s saying to YOU that he’s so excited to come to your wedding; you only heard it through the grapevine.  Pretend you never heard it at all and continue with your plans in blissful ignorance.  I wouldn’t even address the subject in any way whatsoever unless he were to ask you directly.  Which would be rude of him.

uh – would you be heartbroken if that group of friends didnt share your wedding day with you? if so then yes, but if you’re even remotely luke-warm about it, then in whitney houston’s infamous wordsm "aawww he11 to the NAW!!"

HAPPY PLANNING!

Have they invited you to their wedding??   If not, then I wouldn’t even bat an eyelash and just forget about it.  If you have been invited, I would still probably ignore it due to guest limitations at your wedding.

I hate to say it, but as you get closer to the wedding, this won’t be the first time there are issues with the guest list!

We’ve had quite a few people say they can’t wait for our wedding, asked for the date so they can put it on their calendar, etc… and they aren’t invited.  Oh well.  If you don’t feel like you care about having a close relationship with this couple in the future, then don’t worry about it.  It’s fine – he’ll get over it.  Invite the people you WANT there, and don’t worry about the rest.

We have also had people that we never considered inviting make sure that we have their address; ask about the date; even tell us that we need to reschedule because they can’t make it!!!  I can’t wait for the problems that supposedly crop up after you send the invitations (like people wanting to bring uninvited children, cousins, brothers and sisters…)  I would not invite anyone that you don’t absolutely want to be there.  Clearly if you have to worry about how they will behave, you don’t want them there.  And don’t let them manipulate you into feeling that you have to invite them!
