This might be a stupid question, but if you send out save the dates and a guest tells you that they won’t be able to make it when they get the save the date, do you still send them an invitation?
Thanks in advance!

Yes, I would still send them an invitation.

Send the invitation, as plans may change, but I would include a note saying something along the lines of “I know you told me you could not make it, but I wanted to still let you know that we want you there. If your plans change, please let us know.” This way you are acknowledging what they already told you.

@Misswhowedding: Okay I like this idea. I thought not sending it might be rude since they still know the wedding is happening.

All the weddings I’ve gotten save the dates for, and then told the couple that there’s no way I could make it, I’ve never received an invite for.
I always assumed that by telling them that, it would free up an invite for someone else and save them the money on the invite and postage.

@ebarnes0: That’s a fair point too. I didn’t even think of that…

I didnt send save the dates but when a friend who already knew my date got told about the date of another wedding she was invited to on the same day, she told me she wasnt coming to mine and I just asked her, would you like me to still send an invite to you so you feel included, want to have it as a keepsake or whatever. and she said no save the money for someone else
So maybe ask like I did?
