My FI’s cousin told him he won’t be coming to our wedding and not to give him an invite because they aren’t going to travel with their kids. Should we still give him an invite? I’m leaning towards yes, as is my Fiance. Mostly, I don’t want his wife to wonder why they didn’t get an invite. Thoughts? Also, has anyone had people say they won’t be coming after you sent Save-The-Date Cards, did you still send them a formal invite? I have a feeling this may happen to us, as our wedding is in MN and my FI’s familiy is from CA.
P.S. I just want to say that I love this site! 🙂

I’m not sure about “proper” etiquette but, personally, I would send an invitation anyway. Anything could happen between now and September, so you should let them formally reply closer to the date.

I’d still send the invitation. That way if anything changes, they can still RSVP and no one can accuse you of not inviting them.

Thanks ladies! That is exactly what I was thinking.

I sent plenty of invitations to people i know won’t be able to make it, just as a courtesy. And yes even those that said no after getting a save the date will still get a formal invitation.

It is an invitation not a summons. You are inviting them to be there, so send them an invitation.

send it anyway, that way you’re covered 🙂
