Mrs Weston's observation about the Coleses not taking the liberty of inviting because they know they don't dine out is based on other reasons IMO;
I can very well believe that its only after getting encouragement that they decide to forward the invitation.
Mr Weston and Mr Knightley (being invited for the first time it seems) have opportunity to interact with Mr Coles during some 'town' issues, or some sort of business, and thus an invitation can be forwarded to them, because they are personally 'known'.
This is an example showing how Mr Woodhouses lack of socializing deprives Emma of society too.
>Such behavior would rightly signal to the Coles an invitation would be considered presumptuous
Personally I see Emma as shown in E2. Her behaviour more an immature act of amusement to the reader (at least me).
LOL! I can never ever read Emma's assertions earlier with a serious face.
