Oh no! I think you do have to invite them, are they close with anyone on the “a” list? if not you could diy some easy invitations for them.

Yeah, if you’re inviting them to the shower they should be invited to the wedding.  You can send different guests different invitations if you don’t have enough of the originals.  No one is going to know that they got a different invitation from another guest.. and even if they do, who cares!  But sometimes depending on the printer you used you can contact them and order an extra 25 invites (w/ my printer you have to order in quantities of 25 at least).  Sorry that happened… what a headache!

Yeah unfortunately you need to invite them now.  Just hope they won’t all come!

I gave my hosts a list and then they added people who were not on the list and subsequently not on our guest list for invites ๐Ÿ™  Some were iffy’s and I went ahead and sent them an invite but there was 1 that I did not send an invite to, I don’t think.

I think that your concern is more about going over on the number…not the invites, am I correct?

But yes, you should invite them now. I hate that that happened.

oh no! this reminds me of that Friends episode where Phoebe and Rachel plan Monica’s Bridal Shower using her address book and wind up inviting all these people they thought she was close to (i.e. her accountant who she hadn’t used in years). i agree with the other ladies about a b list.
