You should still send them an invite. Whether they send you a gift or not is beyond your control. They’ll do what they feel is right.

I would send them an invite just like you would anyone else. They may change their minds and be able to come after all.

Don’t add an insert and especially don’t mention gifts!

I love the idea of sending them an invite with a note, like you mentioned in your edit. That way they still feel wanted and appreciated!

You should still send them an invite. Even if they cannot come, they are still invited!

Avena:  I have this issue as well, although it is just one person so far that has told me they definitely can’t make it. I’m still going to send them an invite though and then slip a little handwritten note in the envelope as well saying “I know you are unable to make it to our reception, however if anything changes, please know we would love to have you join us. Have a great time in Macchu Pichu (that’s where they’ll be during our reception)!” Do NOT mention anything about a gift, even to just say one isn’t expected.
