Not sure if this should go on this board or the etiquette board but here goes…
Do you have to send an invitation to someone you know FOR A FACT will not be coming to the wedding? And the type of people I am talking about are people you haven’t seen in several years(or haven’t really talked to) that live all the way across the country?

I would say yes if you actually want to invite them (or ought to).
For example, if you were inviting all your aunts and uncles, but you know for a fact that Aunt Sue and Uncle Bobby won’t attend, you still should send them an invitation. If they were to talk to the other aunts and uncles and discover they didn’t receive an invitation, they would be offended, regardless of whether they would attend or not.

Yep, you should still send a paper invite so they can formally decline.
But be prepared to end up where I am, where these folks don’t actually formally decline by sending the RSVP card back!

Yes, you should send one.

Are these people you actually want to invite? Meaning, if they were to RSVP yes, would you be ok with them coming? If so – send them an invite. If not, it sounds like you may want to do more of a wedding announcement (to be sent out after the wedding)
