Is it rude not to invite someone to your wedding?
People You Should Invite to Your Wedding It’s rude to invite people to a pre- wedding event (especially one that includes gifts!) and then not invite them to the wedding itself. The only exception is an office bridal shower. Anyone else who helped you celebrate before the big day should be welcome at the event.
How do you politely tell someone they aren’t invited?
Keep Things Short and Sweet. Don’t come up with an elaborate story or talk in circles when delivering the news. Give it to them straight, and you’re more likely to let them down gently. Explain that you’re hosting an event, give them the reason why you are tight on space and then quickly share the downside.
How do you tell someone they aren’t in your wedding?
How to Tell Someone They ‘re Not In Your Bridal Party

Is it OK to invite to shower and not wedding?
The short answer is, you should not invite anyone to your shower who will not be invited to the wedding. Your shower is an intimate gathering of some of the closest women (and men if you choose) in your life, and if anyone makes the cut for your shower, they should also be close enough to you to get a wedding invite.
Is it OK to invite only one spouse to a wedding?
Whether or not you know someone’s spouse, if you want to invite him or her to your wedding, it is good plus- one etiquette to invite them as a couple. “If you only know one of them very well, and don’t know the other at all, understand that their marriage trumps your experience with their spouse.”
Should I ask why I wasn’t invited?
You are not entitled to an invitation, no matter how long you’ve known the person. So don’t bother asking why you weren’t invited, as if you were robbed of something that is supposed to be yours. If your friend genuinely forgot to invite you (perhaps assuming you’d be there by default), you’d find out later.
