Do I have to invite?

I prematurely asked a few people for their addresses. Looking over my budget, I don't think I can afford to invite them now. Am I obligated to invite them because they now assume they're invited?

    If you just asked for their address, but didn't tell them WHY you needed it, then no - you don't have to invite them.  If you told them that you needed their address for the wedding, then yes you do.

    Yes.  If you gave them any reason to believe that you are going to invite them, then you need to follow up with an invitation.  This applies to asking for addresses, sending out STDs, and verbal invitations and statements of intention of inviting.
