I would personally say you have to let her come. You can’t really “uninvite” her for your mistake. That is just my opinion, though.

You’ve learned a SM lesson.  Now you’re either gonna suck it up or you’re gonna be a bitch.  Your choice.

Eh, if you don’t really see yourself having a relationship with her in the future I would apologize and explain (I.e disinvite).

Let her come.  It’s your mistake for inviting her, and uninviting her now would be incredibly rude.

ileanonthewall:  You put her on a facebook group but didn’t send an invitation?

I think you’re saved by the fact that you haven’t invited other old co-workers.

Write to her that you made a mistake, and did not mean to invite her. Explain that you haven’t invited other old co-workers either, the wedding is small and you can’t invite everyone, etc etc. If she asks other people she knows she’ll find they’re not invited either, so you should be alright.

Un-inviting her now, unless it’s literally like a 20-person family-only wedding, would be incredibly rude. Others will say no; give her one of their spots. NBD.

Big faux pas using Facebook to manage invites. Even if you don’t accidentally invite the wrong person, depending on your guests’ privacy settings, the whole world might be able to see your invite.

Anyway, you have to make room for this guest, taking back your invite would be incredibly rude and hurtful. Plus, for all you know, she may have already bought a gift or a new dress or plane tickets.

If she lives in another state and still said yes than I’m guessing she thinks you guys are closer than you actually are. I think it would be pretty hurtful to uninvite her now. Also, as a PP stated, what if she already bought tickets or booked a hotel room? I typically don’t RSVP ‘yes’ until I have my travel plans and hotel set up.

ileanonthewall:  haha accidental invite and accidental accept! All’s well that ends well. 🙂

I would be careful about facebook though. Can’t you set up a group so only certain people can see it?
