Mmmmmmmm is M a r l e n a. I guessed it from the placement next to Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Winston Ryan Forest Roman John DiMera Alamain Brady Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black DiMera Alamain Arms of Steel Black and tested it in the preview to confirm it.

I guess I'm just not sure why they would be at this wedding. Do they have any connection to Crazy Eyes or Kim Kardashian?
I think that trying to predict the wedding guests based on their connections (or lack thereof) to the bride and groom is a mistake.

It would probably be more beneficial to try to predict the wedding guests based on how their presence at the wedding w ill increase the drama of the reveal(s). For that reason, J ohn and M arlena need to be there. Once you decide who needs to be there, as a writer, it's not terribly difficult to think of reasons for them to be there, even if those reasons are contrived.

Example reasons:

- M arlena counseled N ick before his parole hearing. N ick might invite her for that reason.
----- If true, J ohn would attend as her date.

- M arlena might counsel G abi about her pregnancy. G abi might invite her for that reason.
----- If true, J ohn would attend as her date.

- This w ill be the first wedding that E ric has officiated since returning to Salem. J ohn and M arlena might want to witness this event, and I can't imagine that anyone -- certainly not H ope, M aggie, J ulie, or R afe -- would protest.

- H ope might invite J ohn and M arlena.

- N ick and G abi, who are not exactly wealthy, might choose to invite as many people as they can possibly invite, simply because more people = more gifts.

- N ick could be revealed to be one of M arlena's patients. Therapy is a common condition of parole, I'm sure. That could then be used as a reason to invite M arlena to the wedding.
----- If true, J ohn would attend as her date.

- W ill might need M arlena there for moral support, and given what they're asking him to give up, G abi and N ick would be in no position to deny that request.
----- If true, J ohn would attend as her date.

- If the reveal is premeditated, and if S onny is in on it, he might ask M arlena to be there to offer counseling to those who might need it (I'd say that he might ask her to be there specifically to counsel W ill, but I doubt that S onny w ill know that particular secret before the wedding).
----- If true, J ohn would attend as her date.

That's eight reasons already, and that barely took me fifteen minutes. I'm sure that a team of writers could think of plenty of other reasons for J ohn and M arlena to be there.

(Sorry, bad-word filter -- while mildly amusing, you're also annoying, so I have to bypass you. EDIT: Missed one!)
M arlena was practically Alice's daughter, she's been close to the Horton family for years so that alone is a reason for her to attend... plus The Diva put herself in charge of planning it so I'm sure she's going to invite her mother to the big event
