Hi bees! So Fiance and I went to Bridesmaid or Best Man grad party today, and I’d never met his family, but they were wonderful! So Bridesmaid or Best Man &his Fiance lives w/ his parents. We sent a STD to the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Fiance ONLY (the name on card was to the two of them)
Well, we get there today, and his mom was talking about our wedding, and asking a lot of questions about it. Then when we left, she said “see you at the wedding!”
It’s not like MY Fiance has known the family a lot. He met Bridesmaid or Best Man in college, and only met Bridesmaid or Best Man mom twice.
Like…what do we do? We don’t really want to invite her, nor can we, really as $$$ is already stretched.
But then again, she was sooooo super nice, I’d feel sick about hurting her feelings by not inviting her. Seriously though. I only JUST met her! UGH!
What on earth do we do? (We’re not sure if Bridesmaid or Best Man thinks his mom is getting invited, Probably not, but you never know)

I wouldn’t invite her. If she asks, just tell her that due to budget reasons you only could go with close friends and family. Since they have only met you and your Fiance a few times, they should understand.

You simply cannot invite all the nice people in the world you have met once or twice.

- Wedding: March 2011 - The Viceroy
Do you think maybe she meant your BM’s wedding instead?

@Genesee: No, because she had pointed to our STD on the wall, and the Bridesmaid or Best Man isn’t even close to planning a wedding (nothing set). It was definitely OUR wedding. *sigh*

Totally agree with Julies–this is your BM’s…parents?? Whom you’ve only met 1-2 times? That’s *quite* an expectation, in my book.
I would normally say you *could* put them on your B-list if you have one, but them being BM’s parents and all, they’d know it, so just bite the bullet and cut.

Oh, that’s so awkward! I agree with MissAsB, I would explain that due to your budget you could only invite close friends and family. I’d also make sure Fiance talks to Bridesmaid or Best Man about it and makes sure BM explains to his parents. If you rarely see them, then might it be that you won’t see them again until they show up at your wedding??
Good luck – I hope it works out so that no one is offended and you feel good about the decision!
