jennayhoang:  If you haven’t seen them for two years, it doesn’t sound like it’s a close enough relationship to be offended.

I wouldn’t be concerned about notifying them that they won’t be invited. Everyone knows that all couples have to draw the line somewhere. If anyone is rude enough to ask, you can honestly tell them that you had to cut the guest list because of the capacity of the venue.

I felt the same way. There were certain friends that I was closer with than others and you want to invite everyone because you don’t want hurt feelings, but realistically I had to tell myself it’s our day and people can get mad but oh well. For us it was more financial than capacity. But if you havent seen them in 2 years I wouldn’t worry. They should understand. Congrats!
