I just found out Saturday night that FI’s sister will not be attending the wedding because she is preggo with twin boys and her due date is Nov. 7th. I wanted to send her a STD anyway because they have our pics on them and I thought it would be a nice keepsake for her. However, if I send her a STD would I be required to also send her an invitation knowing that she won’t be coming to the wedding?

Yes, you should definitely still send a STD and invite. Things could change, the babies might come early, and she might be able to make the wedding afterall. But maybe you can include a little note about how you understand she might not make but wanted to send her one just in case.

I would send both the STD & an invite – with her being family, I’m sure she would want to keep both regardless if she is able to attend or not.

Okay thank you! I’m still working on this proper wedding etiquette!

Like the other ladies said, yes. I know one of my close friends & her husband won’t be able to come to our destination wedding but I”m still sending them a STD & invite.

Has she said she’s definitely not coming? I’ve known quite a few people bring newborns to weddings (at least for a little while).

I sent a friend of mine a STD, and she sadly told me that she wouldn’t be able to come because she was doing a 100-mile bike race that same day.
I decided to send her an invitation anyway, and since the STD, she’s changed her mind about the bike race and dropped out! So she asked me if it would be okay to RSVP yes and I said ‘OF COURSE!’ You really never know.

I agree that you should send her the STD and invite whether she can come or not. I would be upset if I didn’t get them for my brother’s wedding. 🙂
