So, I think I’m reading your post correctly. You want to know if you are obligated to invite your ex-stepmother’s family to the wedding. Unless you’re close with them or you think it would offend your ex-stepmom, I wouldn’t invite them. Are you still close to your ex-stepmom?

As for friends, you’re under no obligation to invite someone just because you were invited to their wedding. Everyone has different budgets, venue/space restrictions, etc. So, unless you really want her there, don’t invite her!

I think if you’re keeping it small then you don’t need to feel guilty about leaving out those 20. The friend, well, meh… How long ago was her wedding? if it’s a couple years and you haven’t had any contact since then I wouldn’t bother.

No, you don’t have to invite any of those people. Just make sure you say, “we’re having a small wedding,” to anybody and everybody, and they’ll just have to understand.
