    I wouldn’t. You may have worked with them for five years, but that was six years ago and you haven’t really kept in touch.

    It can appear really gift grabby to invite people you don’t even really know anymore.

    I would save the money and do something for people you actually have a relationship with.

    I like the guideline “if you’d invite them to your birthday party, invite them to your wedding.” I am inviting a former coworker I haven’t seen in about 4 years, but she moved to California and I stayed in Florida. We do keep in touch and she’s also friends with FI and one of our bridesmaids. I think it depends on your personal relationship. For what it’s worth, I’m also inviting my elementary school best friend who I probably haven’t seen in 20+ years, but I couldn’t imagine not doing so.

    it’s hard to tell…although time has caused you to loss contact do they still mean alot to you? If so then invite them

    Has there been no contact at all, or have you at least touched base here and there via phone call to catch up.

    @AndysCraftsNmore:  I think this is one of those that could really go either way. I don’t think it looks gift grabby (I don’t know where people got the idea that always if you’re invited you have to give a gift). Do you really want them to be there? Could you care less? luluvohn has some pretty great advice there too

    it doesn’t sound like you have a relationship with them so I don’t see why you would invite them
