    What are the reasons you don't want her there? Is it simply because you've grown apart, or was there some big falling out? If it's the former, why not send the invite? Besides, you guys might find some new things in common at J's wedding and really want her at yours anyway. If it's the latter, though, don't bother.

      Thanks for all your feedback ladies! I guess the reason why I wasn't going to invite her was because we aren't really friends - have really been for 5 years - but - that being said - I am tight with the other girls so I might as well just invite her!

      You ladies rock!

        Ditto, it's a sacred day so I say surround yourselves with the people who matter. Good luck!

          If you havent spoken to her in almost 3 years is she technically your friend? Don't waste the invite. If someone whom I havent spoken to in years sends me an invitation, I would feel as if I have to go ONLY because I got an invitation and well, if its a destination wedding and I have to spend money to get there then I certainly wouldnt go. I think I would go out my way and spend money to go to a wedding if it was my close friend or family member. So dont worry I dont think you will cause problems. If your friends ask you why you didnt invite her, just tell them that you two havent talked for over 3 years.

            Yes I totally agree. I purposely chose a destination wedding for that reason. You want to be around people that make you 100 percent happy!

              Heck yeah! I even had people ask to be invited that I told no. Maybe that makes me evil (?) but we wanted it intimate and to be with people who have been present in our lives to know us, our stories, and how special the day was for us. We didn't want voyeurs (so to speak).

                  In this case, I would probably invite her and avoid any weird situations in the future. She may not be able to make your wedding.
