Yea I would NOT invite her. I had a similar situation with a girl I was always school-friends with, but never actually hung out with outside of school. I had no plan to invite her to my wedding but she followed my blog and would gchat me asking questions about things/commenting on things I talked about and just generally being very interested and nice about the wedding (which was not the case for most of my friends). I did actually see her a few months before the wedding and enjoyed my time with her so I decided to invite her. She missed the RSVP deadline, then decided she was coming, then no-showed and never sent so much as an email. 

Fringe people are a liability to your guest count.

If I were you, I wouldn’t keep a link to your wedding website on facebook or only have it posted on a limited profile so not everyone sees it. I have an old friend that keeps sending me messages saying not to forget about her for the wedding. I haven’t seen her in years! 

I don’t think you are being a bridezilla at all. If she straight up asks you for an invite just say sorry, we have a limited number of guests at our venue and were not able to include everyone but thank you for your good wishes!

It is so weird to me that people would be that forward!  If you haven’t really had contact with her for 2 years, don’t even give it another thought!  She will understand when she plans her own wedding.
