rhiannonzdanowicz:  I think you’re more likely to get a positive response if you prepare with a phone call at least a week or two before rather than blindside her with an invitation.  You don’t have to give her any more than basic details and leave it at that.  If she offers to help out with planning let her know that it’s pretty much planned out already so there isn’t anything left for her to do or you’re not making a big deal out of it since it’s your second wedding.  If she responds in an ugly manner then I wouldn’t send her an invitation at all (why have a toxic person at your happy event?) and I would reconsider even calling her the holidays since she can’t just be happy for you.

I would tell her sooner than later – it’s like ripping a bandaid off, it’s best to do it quickly. A quick email or text message (if that’s how you communicate) that says something like, “Hey, just wanted to let you know that _____ and I are getting married. The wedding will be next Janaury. Proper invitations will go out later this year.” (or something more in style with how you speak).
