I wouldn’t send an invite, I would send a congratulations card.

I would send them an invitation.  I invited friends and family from out of state that I knew couldn’t attend the wedding but wanted them to know that they were important to me.

I sent out invites to those I knew couldn’t come.

I would default to sending an invitation.  It’s not to say somehow you are expecting them to come.  It’s just a way of still including them, and saying that you wished they could, and letting them know they were on the list.

I would send them an invite.  Because if they weren’t getting married that day, you’d invite them to your wedding.  Its just a nice way to let them know they are important to you.

that is a little bit strange. we found out that FI’s cousin’s kids (his cousins are his parents age, so he’s closer to their kids) are getting married on our day and we won’t be sending invites or receiving them, we just mutually assumed that the family would be split in half between our weddings.

I would send an invite, but include a note saying you know they can’t make it but wish they could or something.
