I would just invite them.  Most likely, they won’t even come to the wedding anyway if it is far away from where you live.

I would ask her what she wants to do and leave it up to her.  I think it could be a very personal decision and in the end, she should do what is right for her.

Whatever your daughter wants.  It doesn’t sound like they would come even if invited but they might be hurt if they aren’t invited.  Either way, let your daughter make the final call.

This is definitely up to your daughter, not you. Whatever her decisoin is, is final, no questions asked.

Agree with PP’s – it’s up to your daughter.

I have the same idea with most people here. You should ask your daughter if she wants to invite them or not. But since she wants a small intimate wedding, I think her answer would be ‘no’.

However, if she doesn’t know what to do and leave it all to you, I think at least you should invite her dad. For others, you don’t have to invite if you don’t feel like and maybe they’re not close to her so they don’t care anyway.

Hope this helps you find a solution Smile

I agree with the other bees… I think that before you just don’t invite them that it is something your daughter needs to think about and decide for herself. Despite the fact that they have had little contact with her, she may deep down inside be wishing that they all be there. It is her special day, so with a subject like that I’d be sure to check with her to avoid any massive mistakes.
