Definitely send invitations. I personally would send them sooner rather than later.

Since you can pretty much count on them being late if they think it’s simply a birthday party, you have to ask yourself what matters more. Does it matter more to make it a surprise and avoid the inevitable comments, or does it matter more to assure that his family attends in time to actually witness the ceremony?

I’d send wedding invitations so people take it seriously.

@FutureMrsA2014:  I would send invites even though it sounds like your sanity may suffer. Tell them to stifle the comments!

@FutureMrsA2014:  Send invitations for the birthday party and ask them to be there 30 minutes to an hour before you actually need them there so if they run late there is a better chance of them being on time.  Sending invites shows that the party is a bug deal so hoepfully they won’t take a pass.  Otherwise, it’s time to let the cat out of the bag and tell them it’s actually a wedding.
