Whatever you do, do not have your wedding in a park if you don’t invite her.

In all seriousness though, plan your wedding around who you sre close to now, because you might get closer to this person but you also might not. If you get a lot of declines you could maybe invite her closer to the date, if you want her to come.

I would invite anyone that you communicate with/hang out with outside of the group meeting. If that’s not everyone, I’m sure they will understand.

I couldn’t invite the entire worship team from my church and their spouses either, so, even though we essentially were one of the Church’s small groups, I only invited the people I was close to. (My DH and I were long distance for our entire relationship, so he didn’t really know any of my church friends.)

Then, as a prior poster suggested, I had a number of out of state family and some friends who could not attend. That allowed me to extend an invitation to some of those who I was not originally able to invite. They all understood and were still very happy to be invited. That may end up being your situation as well. For now, I would invite only those with whom you have a close relationship. And, yes, I would invite the close friend who will be away for a few months.
