hanrose91 : Honestly, chances are a few of them won’t be able to make it anyway. Unfortunately that’s just the reality of DWs. I would invite them all unless there is a really important reason you want it to be small and intimate. I would think of it as, “Once I move back, if we become really close, will I regret not having invited them?”

hanrose91 : How many people will be invited? Will it be big enough that your Fiance may not even notice whether they are there or not?

Also, it’s worth noting that although it would be ideal that all of our friends got along swimmingly with our SO’s, that’s not always the case. They may not seem interested but they may still be genuinely happy for you and love to celebrate with you. I have a friend who’s DH I can’t stand. I do make an effort to ask about him but it’s very rare and to be honest, I don’t really care whether he’s doing good or not. I still am 100% happy for her and would have been devastated if I had been excluded from their wedding because she knows we don’t get along. I may not be happy about her choice in partner, but I am still happy that’s she is happy and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.

You will pay, what? $200 pp. They will pay $1,200 pp for the trip, hotel, gift and whatever else? You can invite them but it is unlikely they will attend if they really are not that close to you anyway. You could just call all your girls or email and give them the idea of your wedding to gauge interest before sending invites. The ones that don’t care will most likely show it and you will not have to invite them.

Feelings might not be as hurt but it doesn’t sound like it matters either way.
