    @MissJK:  Since you already did STDs, you must invite them.  I would take it as a compliment if I were them!  It’s up to them whether they want to give a gift or not.  When I don’t actually attend a wedding, I don’t give a gift.

    Send formal invites and don’t write anything about gifts Or no gifts. They may or may not have planned on getting you a gift and I don’t see that as money/gift grabbing At all. I would be offended if i didnt at least get an invite. They may have planned to get you something together. 

    We knew a ton of people that we invited couldn’t come from day one but we still sent an invite. I would say 75% of them sent as gift card or something from the registry and the others sent a card.
