Wedding invitations shouldn’t be tit for tat.  Just because you attended their weddings doesn’t mean they are obligated to attend yours.  You chose to spend your vacation days attending their weddings which was great of you.  They’ve chosen to spend their vacation days on vacation which isn’t neccessarily a bad choice.  I’m sure they’ve worked hard to save up those days and I understand wanting to use them for what they planned to over attending your wedding. 

In addition, people aren’t obligated to give you a reason for declining an invitation.  If I felt I had to in their situations, I would totally write work as it’s a 1 worded answer rather than getting into the specifics, and it’s not a lie.  I was also in a situation at my old position where we were really busy during the summer so no one was allowed to take annual leave during this time, but could during the winter so that’s a potential.

They may be planning to have a child soon and want to take a trip before that.  They may have finally saved up the money to go overseas and don’t want to have to postpone it for your wedding. 

I know it sucks, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t important to them, just your wedding is far more important to you than it is to them.  Try not to dwell on it and focus on who is coming! 😀
