@Sadiepoo:  In my opinion, all OOT guests and immediate family should receive an invitation, even if it’s just an evite.  Offer to help with expenses if your side is excessive in number, or if the groom’s family just invited their side.  In my circles, the bride’s parents or family also host a day-after breakfast for OOT guests… basically to cover meals for people who travelled.

@Sadiepoo:  I’m not sure I understand.

All the Bride’s immediate family were extended invitations via you but you decided that you didn’t think they would want to come and didn’t pass on the invite?

That’s the way that is reading to me.

If that is the case, I’m sorry, but I think you goofed.  If you’re given the task of extending an invitation it’s your responsibility to do so – even if you think the people in question won’t want to come.  You now have the responsility of hurt feelings to deal with and a potentially awkward situation at the wedding…
