I’ve had a number of guests log onto my wedding website in response to my save-the-date and RSVP early that they can’t make it to our semi-destination wedding.
Should I still send these people invitations? At this point, I think it would feel funny to do so, so I’ve just been responding to them thanking them for their RSVP and saying that of course they’ll be missed but I understand they can’t come, etc.
Advice would be appreciated.

I wouldn’t send them an invite since you’ve already acknowledged that they can’t make it. I’m not sure if my answer is proper etiquette, but it is what I would do.

Agree. At least that’s what I did, proper etiquette or not. I figured STD’s were a pre-invite, and the invite included the directions that people who were coming needed. Though I also sent invites to my relatives abroad even though I knew they couldn’t come because I just figured it’d be something for them from the wedding.

@celticbride: Thanks! I agree that might seem a little funny to send it if they already said they can’t come.
@pfinarffle: Good point . . . . I will think of sending invites to my relatives anyway . . . even the ones far away who have already let me know they can’t make it. I agree that it probs makes them feel honored and included.

We didn’t for friends, but we sent them for family, who wanted a copy of the invitation for a keepsake.
