my maid of honor is my cousin, so of course her family is invited.

one bridesmaid has been my friend since kindergarten and i’m inviting her parents, but not her brother and sister (tho she may bring the sister as her guest).

i’m not inviting my other bridesmaids parents or brother because even tho i’ve met them a few times and they’re very nice people, i’m not close to them and haven’t had the chance to form a close relationship with them.

i think it would be nice to extend an invitation to those who you have more of a bond with (like the mom who babysat you). and i would definitely mention that you have limited space/budget, so only closer friends/family will be invited, so (hopefully) no one will assume they/their families are invited.

i know a lot of my friends’ parents (and my parents know their parents) so i understand your predicament. it’s hard to figure out where to draw the line.

You’re definitely under no obligation to invite her family. It’s your wedding! It’s nice of you to even consider it.

You don’t have to invite her parents, but if you choose to don’t feel guilty! I’m sure everyone will understand that you have a relationship with them. You won’t be obligated to invite all of your girls’ parents.

I think it would be nice to invite the parents if it fits within your budget. If it doesnt then I would let it go since your not that close to them.   As far as siblings go, I think it is unnecesary.
