@Karissa: Well you don’t have to invite people, but it’s just custom that you do.  Usually that would involve whomever your Fiance works with on a daily basis, and up the chain one.  So if he’s enlisted, it would be his squadron and his squadron XO/CO.  Plus their families.  Usually if your Fiance isn’t close with those people they will RSVP no anyway and send a card, but it’s still customary to invite them.

Because my wedding was a Destination Wedding, and because my coworkers were going to be unavailable, I didn’t invite anyone like tradition says.  It would have looked like a gift grab since I already knew no one could come!
