I use the 3 strikes you’er out rule, like in baseball. It’s not worth your trouble, to keep asking them. If you hear from them before you run out of save the dates, send one. If not, wait to see if you hear from them before you run out of invitations, whenever they’re sent.

I would say once.  People respond when they want to and don’t respond when they don’t want to.

When you say you have contacted them… Does that mean you called them? Or just sent an email or Facebook message?

Since it’s just the STDs I would just wait until you send invites unless you have other people that you would invite in their place.

Ckasnoff:  Are you sure that they received the message? Depending on how you sent the message, email, facebook, etc. they might not check it very often. Do any of your other family members have their addresses? Can you give them a phone call?

Ckasnoff:  i think you’ve done enough. If they contact you when they hear that other people have received STD’s you can tell them “We wanted to include you but you failed to respond to three requests for your address, so we had to assume you were not interested”.

Ckasnoff:  I would try again if you want them there. I often look at a message while I’m out and about and forget to reply later when I’m sitting down. Also if you don’t tell me why you want it, I may think it’s unimportant so not rush to do it. Just something to keep in mind.

Of course you can just forget about it for now and invite them later.
