Does anyone else feel like they normally have a good sense of manners and have lost ALL PERSPECTIVE in this process?

Totally. It’s ridiculous! Inviting family to my wedding that I know can’t come because they live far away somehow means that I’m fishing for gifts? Wha??

I think it would be a nice gesture if we can do it, but I don’t think we have to invite.

Yes. Exactly. And at 3 weeks out from your wedding, they are well aware that they aren’t invited. Your two wedding are serarate and unrelated events. They just really like you guys!

I wouldn’t.  Everyone has different wedding styles, venue capacities, budgets, etc.  Just because they may be having a wedding where they are inviting more acquaintances than you guys are doesn’t mean they need to be invited to yours.  And honestly, they probably already know they’re not invited since your wedding is only 3 weeks away and are okay with that.

@anonybride712:  If that’s how you percieve your relationship to be this way than there is no reason for you to invite them. 

I don’t think this is manners flying out the window or anything, why invite acquaintences over friends you really know?
