If it were me, I probably would not invite her, and invite your friends parents who you’ll probably have a longer lasting relationship with.  If you don’t think you’re going to have much contact with your ex-boss anymore, I don’t see why you should have to invite her, especially if you never told her she was officially invited.

That’s a good plan. Don’t send her an STD, see how it goes, and if you don’t talk to her by invite time – she’s out. 

I’m sure she’ll understand 🙂

Yes, that’s a great idea not sending the save the date and wait to see if you hear from her.  If not, then you’re off the hook…lol

You have already issued her a verbal save the date. So I think you are etiquettely obligated to invite her now.

And I don’t understand the wait to see if I hear from her. What polite person would ever call someone up and ask where their invite is? But what it may do is damage your professional reputation.

If you weren’t friends, is there any reason to think you’ll see her again?  If not, I’d say forget the invite.

YOur wedding isn’t until October, trust me by then it will have been so long since you’ve spoken she might not even remember your wedding was going to take place. And it might be less awkward for her too if you just don’t invite her. You aren’t breaking any etiquette rules technically since you never sent her an invitaiton or STD.

I honestly think it really is up to you if you want to invite her or not. Though you did do a verbal and to me at least that would mean you should be sending her paper one to.
