I wouldn’t do it.  If I got an invite this late in the game, and it was obvious I wasn’t originally invited, I would be offended.

I am interested to hear what others say because I am hoping to do this with some of my work friends.

Is it possible maybe that I could prepare them in advance by saying ‘I would have loved to invite you but due to budget constraints…however, would you be interested in a last-minute invitation if space allows?

I made my RSVP date quite far in advance of the wedding for this very reason.

We invited some people at the last minute.  They weren’t family members but we just said ‘hey we didn’t get as many people as we expected and you are welcome to come and eat our free food.  no gift required.’  They weren’t offended.

I don’t see why not. It’s still 3 weeks away. I would send the invite (without RSVP) TODAY so they get it by Monday. I don’t see why not enless they have to travel really far. But if it’s just a drive I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I would go for it. I personally forget about things when I get them months in advaced. I’d rather get them within 3-4 weeks of the event.

I agree with MissAsB – I think if your upfront about it then it shouldn’t be a problem.
