My Fiance just got an email from an old high school friend who just got engaged and asked him for his address for the wedding invite. He said he hasn’t really kept in touch with her and was surprised by the email. He thinks that we are now obligated to invite her to our wedding. (our wedding: this June, hers: September)
I don’t think we should invite her, but he thinks that it would be wrong not to. Thoughts?

Negative. One invite does not equal another. If she wasn’t on your list in the first place, you had good reason. And you aren’t obligated to accept her invitation either.

I agree with MightySapphire. And it’s very likely that she has a completly different budget than yours if she’s able to invite someone from high school that she hasn’t kept in touch with.

Awkward. But I still wouldn’t invite her. He’s not even that close to her. The fact that she’s inviting him is strange.

If you have the budget to invite her (& a possible guest), then I think its ok. Sometimes friends lose touch but they still mean something. Why make it a big deal?
If your guest counts needs to stay low then, ok..don’t invite her.
Either way you’re not obligated to attend her wedding.

You definitely aren’t obligated to. Maybe her family has tons of money and is paying for a large wedding so she’s inviting lots of people even though she might not be close to them anymore? But that is obviously a rare occurrence so I don’t think she would just expect that you guys could invite anyone and everyone too so I wouldn’t worry about not inviting her.

Thanks, bees! It’s good to hear your opinions. I’m going to read your responses to my Fiance. Thanks again!
