    @MsGinkgo:  You certainly don’t “have to”. I probably would and just add a post-it note saying “I know you can’t make it but wanted you to see my awesome invites!” or whatever. 😛 But I’m a paper-fiend so there you go.

    Depends. I guess I wouldn’t if they already told me they can’t come

    I had a few friends who ended up booking trips around the wedding and they told me way before I sent out the invites that they couldn’t make it. So I didn’t bother sending them invites. What’s the point? You know what their response will be and most likely they will end up not even sending it back since they know that you already know that they cannot come. Complete waste of an invite and postage IMO. I love our invitation suite as well, but I would rather save it then send it to someone I already know cannot make it.

    I wouldn’t since they’ve said they can’t attend. I would consider that different from distant family you invite because you “have to”, but know they won’t come!
