Would you go to this wedding?

I got married a few years back, since then have moved away and lost touch with a number of people who came.

Just received a wedding invite from a couple that came to ours, I'm sure we are only invited because we had them at ours. I've not seen them for years although have invited them to a number of gatherings which they've declined. Have sent the odd message too.

Would you go? I can't help feeling they wouldn't really want us there as we don't really know them anymore but obviously they have decided to invite us so perhaps would like us there?!

I think they've invited you because they really do want you there.

If they hadn't invited you, they don't see you anyway, so the fallout would be minimal. So therefore no pressure on their part to invite you.

I'd go , but I like weddings. If you don't, I think it's perfectly fine for you to decline gracefully.

A chance to catch up and eat and drink at their expense!!
Returning the gesture. .
Get yourself there!!

Haha ok thanks for both replies. I am keen to go as I obviously like the couple! It's not out of our way to go and I will try and see them before the wedding :-)

I'd go too. I really don't think people invite others to their weddings just to reciprocate, spaces are usually limited and expensive, if they've invited you it's because they do want you there.

If you would like to go then go! You're trying to second guess their motivation and you seldom get the right answer doing that.

They sent you an invitation to their wedding - you kind of have to assume they would like you to come!

I see what you mean, but as others have said if they didn't want you there they simply wouldn't have invited you. It's up to you whether to go or not but if you like their company and enjoy weddings then why not?
