I would say yes.  There is probably a good chance they won’t come but it is always nice to do.

We also invited our photographers who won’t be doing pictures at the reception but are going to come to our dinner.

Our officiant wasn’t someone we knew before the wedding and we didn’t invite her because her company does not allow them to attend the reception.

It’s considered polite to invite them. But since they don’t know you, they will likely decline. We are inviting ours because we having someone we know who would be a guest anyway ordained for the day through the county.

We are expecting our rabbis to stay for the reception. I didn’t send an invitation – I guess I just expect they know they are welcome to stay. And I would say your officiant should be invited to your reception as well. We also invited them to the rehearsal dinner. If your officiant is at the rehearsal and you’re hosting dinner she should be invited for dinner as well.
