@MelBan:  I had the same thing with my wedding.  Just send it anyway.  They will likely feel happy to be included (because who doesnt like getting fancy invites in the mail?).  But also, things could change and they may be able to attend.

I think it’s better to be safe than sorry. Send one in case their plans changed.

What about sending an invite and including a hand-written note that you understand they likely won’t be able to come but wanted to send them an invitation anyway just in case their plans changed.

@MelBan:  I would just send them an invitation as a formality. You can look at this the same way that you would look at out of country/out of state guests who you know cannot make it. By sending an invitation, you’ve done all you could. What’s the worst that will happen? They will just send back the RSVP card with a “No.”

I was in this position. We’ve had RSVPs on our wedding website already from the Save the Dates.
