That’s what we did, only invited the parents who were friends of my parents. I didn’t talk to the kids in years so we just did the parents, and employees of my parents but not kids.

futuremrschristensen:  I’m only inviting the parents.  Thankfully, I have a precedent set for me – the girls are either married or getting married before me, so they only invited my parents to their weddings.  I can do the same.  🙂  I did go to their showers (both bridal and baby).  I wasn’t invited to the first shower, because I wasn’t going to the wedding.  But my sister and I got wind of it through mum and called to ask if we could crash.  (We did shower crash.)  I know its not ‘proper’ ettiquette but we wanted to shower her.  So we were invited to the rest (and they are invited to mine).  

I totally understand guest list restrictions, so I never felt upset that we weren’t invited to the weddings.  We just aren’t as close as we were as kids.  But I did want to celebrate in some way with all of them.

I only invited the parents of my family friends. I don’t think any adult children will have a hard time with that, when you haven’t talked in a long time.
