Bees, help me out. Looking at the guest list, I’ve send out most of the STD’s & for some reason been avoiding sending out a handful. I think i’ve figured out why – during this wedding process I’ve come to realise how many friends i’ve fallen ‘out of touch’ with. I travelled a lot before meeting Fiance so many people are o/s.
I’ve asked for their addresses – but haven’t actually sent them the STD. Happy that if I send them a STD, I’ll send then an invite. I doubt they would come. Now I feel silly asking for their addresses – should I just invite them – more out of courtesy?

Only invite them if you want them to come. If they are overseas and are wanting a trip to Australia then your wedding might be the push to get them there. So I wouldn’t send an invite unless you were happy to have them attend.

Don’t feel you have to send them an invite just because you asked for their addresses. Only send the STD to them if you want them to attend 🙂

If you don’t feel like you’re close, don’t invite them. That’s ok.

I would like them to come, but kind of feel silly now as we don’t really maintain contact (except xmas cards & misc facebook likes/comments) …. i think i may be worried at their reaction? ‘Haven’t seen her in a yr & she invites me to her wedding’
My mind somethings works in wacked ways & overthinks…This has to be the silliest post i’ve started on the bee :/

@Nic01: If you definitely want them to come, invite them, they can choose whether or not to come. And if you feel silly about inviting them after a lack of contact, maybe start up the contact again? But if you aren’t entirely sure then don’t send them a STD.

I say don’t invite! Don’t feel pressured to send one out just because you’ve asked for the address.
