How do you politely tell someone they are not invited?
When planning a wedding, how do you tell family and friends that you love them and wish you could include them, but due to a modest budget, you are unable to invite them to your special day? Would you send a letter? Should it be sent before or after the wedding? Should you send a little gift (like an email picture slide show of the wedding) to let them know that you were thinking of them? Obviously the intention is to be as polite as possible without hurting too many feelings.
