If someone invited us to their wedding. But we are not close to them, does that automatically mean that we need to invite them to our wedding. My mother says no, his mother says yes. We are trying to keep things small.
Just because you feel you attended their wedding at the time as their guests and they being close to you in their way. You don't need to invite them to yours. Small and tight budget is your aim and stick to it.
I have a huge family within the states (lots of cousins from my aunts family) and international. I avoided inviting them due to budgeting and keeping the number low for our purpose of immediate family only and local friends.
I say no, especially if you're trying to keep things small. We were invited to a wedding last year for my FH's grandma's goddaughter who we'd never met, but there were at least 300 guests at hers. We're keeping ours to <100 people so she and her hubby will not be invited to ours.
If you are keeping things small, you don't have to. It is your day, and you invite those who you want to be there, don't feel like you have to!
FH's parents thought we had to invite everyone whos wedding we went to, or if they were invited to their wedding, so we did, and none of them are coming to ours anyways. So it was one of those " well we invited them" lol
Definitely not! FH and I were invited and attended a wedding last year and did not invite the couple to our wedding (we had a lot of family-obligated invites). We added them to our B list after getting so many no's but they weren't able to and there's no hard feelings
