Any tips on narrowing down who to invite friend wise? Family is easy and so are family friends-i’m having trouble thinking about what friends to invite. I’m one of those women that knows a lot of people and has a lot of friends-super good friends? unfortunately no (except my future bridesmaids)
I simply am around lots of people who i like a lot and who are my friends, but how to narrow down who to actualy invite?? I had an engagement party and invited people that now i think i may not want to have at my wedding- i also worry this may cause problems

@doubtingdebbieah: If you invited them to the engagement party, you should invite them to the wedding.
We had a lot of fringy friends that we enjoy hanging out with, but don’t see very often. We just asked ourselves – If we saw this person after the wedding, would it be awkward because they weren’t invited?

If its not an easy answer, I would lean towards do not invite them.
But of you need criteria I would ask these questions
Would they ask me to their wedding?
Will I still be as close or closer in 3-5 years?
Am I friendly with them because I like them or because its convenient for some reason?
If they were invited to the engagement party, they should be invited.

Only invite people you would feel comfortable calling up to hang out with on a random evening. Or if you want a more exclusive group, only invite people you would ask to get a ride to the airport.
