You definitely don’t need to invite anyone just because they invited you to their wedding!

I’ve heard a lot of ‘rules of thumb’ before – if you haven’t spoken to them in the past year/if you can’t name their significant other/umm…. I can’t actually think of any others.

If you’re worried about offending, I’d say pick something with a pinpointable cut off (like the one year thing) and then stick to it. That way if someone is offended, you can gently explain that you couldn’t invite everyone, and so decided to cut the list off at xyz.

Honestly, I’m going with the rule that if it upsets me to think that they won’t be there, I probably need to invite them. My parents friends are like family to me, more than my actual extended family, so I’ll invite them and more than likely not invite my extended family. Well, actually, my grandmother would FLIP so she’ll probably make me invite them.

Honestly if I got a wedding invtie from a facebook friend from years ago I would be offended and think that they were gift grabbing and I would decline!

For some reason I just don’t think a wedding is a time to reunite with old friends – if you reunite with them before hand and then invite them to the wedding I think it would be more appropriate!

No – you don’t need to invite someone just because they invited you to theirs.

No – you don’t need to invite someone just because you have a Facebook friend relationship.

I agree with the above poster… I am inviting people who I cannot imagine not being at my wedding. If I could care less (being frank here) then why worry?
