I believe the common courtesy is to send them an invitation regardless of whether they have informed you that they are unavailable and cannot attend or not.  An invite doesn’t mean they have to send a gift, though many people do.  Who knows – there may be a few people who had something open up in their schedule and maybe they can attend now!

I think you should still send them formal invitations.  I don’t think that it means that you are pumping them for gifts but it seems weird to send them STD’s but not invites.  My sister is getting married this October and she knows some of our family cannot attend but is still sending them invites.  Plus you never know- plans change and they might end up making it!
