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.

Do you think maybe she meant your BM’s wedding instead?

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!
