So first, are these their real names? If yes, you might want to make it more anonymous in case the other bride is on the Bee! Maybe give them pseudonyms or something (which you might have already done – just checking!) 🙂

Second, have you sent the invites? If no, you shouldn’t address this until after you do. If yes, you could let them know that because it’s a Destination Wedding, you didn’t have space (but remember, you are not obligated to tell them anything – they are not close friends of yours and you don’t owe anyone an explanation regarding who you choose to invite). Alternatively, you can say nothing and place them on the “B List” and send them an invitation if space opens up when/if someone declines (if you want them at your wedding).

Are you having an at-home celebration after your wedding? You may want to send them a courtesy invite. Make sure to say “unfortunately we weren’t able to invite everyone we would have liked to have to our destination wedding….” etc.

I think this bride totally understands that destination weddings are different than home weddings.  If I were here, I’d feel more embarrassed about getting the totally late invite…they invited you knowing they were not invited to yours.  I’d just accept the invite and enjoy your wedding!  Maybe you could take them to dinner to toast the upcoming nuptuals?
