I would send the invitation.  It sounds like you are decently close to both the professor and his wife. They know an invitation is not a summons and can decide what they would like to do, in any case I’m sure they will be flattered to receive the invitation.

pennyk:  Our work friends (for Fiance and I) are on our “B” list, so when we receive the declining RSVP’s we can invite them.

Although that being said it sounds like you are very close with your colleague so I’d say invite him and his wife. The general rule of thumb for us when considering guests for the “A” or “B” list was “how much have they impacted our lives?” and “have we hung out outside of work?”. Sounds like he is a yes to both!

I would invite him. It sounds like he has been a mentor to you and invited you to a lot of outings outside of your PhD program, so it would be a nice way to return the gesture by inviting him to your wedding.

I would invite because it sounds like this person has some meaning/value to your life. And I am sure they would appreciate being invited and would want to be at your wedding!
