Wow, you’re "friends" are being harsh (sorry if that sounds judgmental of them).  Yeah, it is a bit inappropriate/rude to discuss an event in front of people who aren’t invited.  Best to avoid it, but it can happen by mistake.  Sounds like you realize that, have apologized, and will avoid it in the futue.  But that has nothing to do with who you choose to invite to your wedding.  No, you don’t have to invite an entire friends’ circle if you are inviting one member of it.  No, this slip up does not obligate you to invite everyone.  I have no idea why people think it’s okay to demand invitations to your wedding.  I’m sorry you have to put up with this, but stand firm.  And then tell hem, once and for all, that you are sorry for what happened but you will not discuss it further.

 Hope it gets better for you.

Yikes, from what you’ve written it sounds to me like your friends have completely overreacted. They need to be more supportive of your decisions. I would just go ahead with your original plans. You’ve already apologized twice, there’s nothing else you can do. Hopefully they all get over it.

I am always surprised how people have the audacity to question someone else’s major life choices when in reality, they have nothing to do with them. I’m sorry they put in this position and I hope things blow over soon.

Regardless, congrats and enjoy YOUR wedding!
