  • Wedding: October 2009

My Fiance and I ran into a similar situation. And just three weeks before the wedding ended up inviting some mutual friends. We were just 100% honest and said something like, 

“O<span style=”font-family: ‘lucida grande’, tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; color: #333333;”>ur wedding is coming up REALLY soon. We would LOVE for you both to come and celebrate and party with us if you are able. We apologize for not being able to invite you sooner, but we have been really tight on numbers. My parents were in town this weekend and after looking over and talking about all the details, we figured that since we’d love for you to be there (if you can), we’d suck up the awkwardness of the super late invitation.”

And now they are coming!! =) Hope it works out well for you!

I’d send her the invitation, with no explanation.  If she can make it, great!  Anything else would make me feel like a 2nd class guest (if I were on the receiving end).
