    Hey ladies, so I need some advice. I went to a DW in Mexico last year where another guest (and her fiance) I vaguely knew, hung out with my group of friends. It was fine and we had a great time but now this year both she and I are getting married. She invited us to her wedding, and now I feel obligated to invite them to ours. However, our wedding is a destination wedding and we only wanted to invite people who are near and dear to us and here I am considering inviting somebody who I only really hung out with for a week in Mexico. Am I making to much of this? Should I just do it? Arghhhh.... drama.

      I wouldn't. But I don't feel the need to invite out of obligation. It's different for her to invite you if she's having a traditional at home wedding IMHO. I think most people know that DW's tend to have a much more exclusive invite list.

        I know this sounds horrible BUT a lot of people invite everyone they know to a wedding for selfish reasons. One being presents two being attention. With at Destination wedding, we are a different breed. Don't feel obligated AT ALL. It is understandable and easily explainable if brought up.

          Yes, I think you guys are right. We only wanted our close friends and family to be there on our special day, you know people who were there from the beginning... that's why we chose a destination wedding!!!

          I really appreciate your advice on the matter!
