When I sent out my STD’s I got a few people that let me know ahead of time that they would not be able to attend. On the STD it stated that a formal invitation would follow, so should I still send those that will not be able to attend an invitation as well?

I would send one just to be polite. If they don’t send an RSVP back with a “no” at least you know where they stand. One of our GMs can’t make it due to his pharmacy school program, but I’m sending one anyway. The same is true for out of state relatives I know won’t come.
If it’s people who are just friends/distant relatives I don’t think you HAVE to if you want to save money on invites/postage.

@MissBev: I agree, sending one is just letting them know you want them to be included, even if they can’t make it.

I did just to be polite and in case circumstances had changed between receiving the STD and the Invite. My invites were pretty cheap and I had leftovers though, so it wasn’t a big deal, just postage.

We did for most, esp. family.

Thanks everyone. I was thinking that I should probably still send out the invitations and this reassured me 🙂
