DP and I both have huge families. We couldn't afford to invite everyone, even if we wanted to! For eg DP is one of idk like 30 something cousins? ( his mum is one of 12) I'm one of the youngest out of 13 cousins on my mums side alone, where in which every one of us have partners, and I've been to a few of their weddings once I turned 18. I'd love to invite them all but at $200 a head for food alone, I dont think so! So we've decided when we finally do plan a wedding, it will be an over seas small intimate one with close friends and VERY close family. IMO it's easier to organize something small and private than worry about everyone's feelings weather they'll get an invite or not. I know this comes across as selfish, but honestly, after all the drama I've witnessed in organizing a wedding and reception. I don't even want a traditional one!
*Edit: If it was one of my best friends wedding who I was invited to and they didn't invite me, yes I would be upset if it were a huge wedding, but if it were something more samll and family focused, I'd still go to the ceremony if they were ok with that and be happy to see them marry

It really hurt that I wasn't/am not invited to either of these weddings (and I know that it wasn't a guest number issue with either wedding, because my sister, who has more balls than I asked), not just because they came to my wedding, but because it makes me feel like my own flesh and blood don't give two craps about me.

I found it strange that with one particular couple - we invited them to our wedding but then later only invite me to their wedding saying numbers were limited - but I mean he was my husband by that stage, their wedding had 250 people and a couple at the same table as me had only been together 3 months WTF??

I've known the bride since we were 4 and she knew was friends with my husband before I met him (she wasn't the one that introduced us) - very possible but strange none the less

I don't think this has happened to us yet. We got married over 5 years ago.
Any weddings since ours that have been our wedding guests we have been invited to.
I probably wouldn't be too phased if any of the remaining unmarried people didn't invite us to their weddings. Maybe a little disappointed if they invited most of our other friends but not us. I'd probably wonder why. But it's their wedding at the end of the day, they can do what they want.
I'd never say anything.
