    @Soccergk1987:  I would probably extend them an invite.  I’m not Catholic so I don’t know if that’s what’s typical, but I feel like I would want to invite them.

    I probably would. They don’t have to accept, but I think it would be nice of you to give them the option.

    @Soccergk1987:  I don’t think you would. We are not going to, but our precana was only 1 day

    @Soccergk1987:  I’m not Catholic, so I don’t know what protocol is, but I would invite them as a nice gesture. No one who receives a wedding invitation is obligated to attend, but it’s nice to give them the option Smile

    I am a christian and we are on premarital counseling. We are going to invite them, but we are also very close (he is the pastor of our church, we go every sunday and are active in it) and the pastor is going to marry us.

    I would have invited them if they weren’t as close though.

    I wouldn’t.  But I very firmly believe that you should invite people with whom you have an ongoing relationship and are close with.  Not just everyone who was ever nice to you.

    I look at this couple as more of a vendor.  Someone who you are required to work with to book a certiain officiant.  I wouldn’t invite them any more then I would the admin assistant at the florists.

    It can’t hurt to extend the invite. They can choose whether they’d like to come. 🙂

    I’m Catholic and I wouldn’t.  Aside from the “counseling” that that they offer, you wouldn’t know this couple from Adam.  Also, the counseling that they do provide a service for is REQUIRED by the church.  I wouldn’t invite anyone that I was required to meet with as a stipulation of being allowed to get married at that church/in the church.  

    Unless you have both actually connected on a deep friendship level with this other couple, I wouldn’t invite them.  Send them a nice “Thank you” card if you want.
