You sent them a save the date. You have to send them an invite. 

If you didn’t want to invite them you shouldn’t have indicated to them that you were going to.

At six weeks, I think you still fall under the normal length of time for invites to be sent out, but just barely. Sending it now would be later than the rest of your guests, but not late by etiquette standards.

I agree that you have to send it, though.

If your wedding is in six weeks I think you’re in the clear (so long as the RSVP date hasn’t passed), that isn’t so close to the date to raise any eyebrows. And I agree that you’re doing the right hting in inviting them since you did send them a STD and this is one of those times you just kinda have to suck it up. I’m sure there will be a lot of people there, one person you’re not thrilled about will be okay. I had some mail issues where some guests got their invites later than others, so I wouldn’t worry about just mailing it now.

If you were less then 6 weeks out, I’d say damage is done.  But 6 weeks is within a normal time frame.

But typically if you are going to invite someone late, it is better to not invite them at all.
