I would error on the side of inviting.  It really is a nice gesture, and who knows which ones might surprise you and actually make it? 

If you are close to them, it’s not “gift grabby” but if you want to make it even less so, include a personal letter along the lines of “I know you might not be able to make it, but this is us letting you know that we will be thinking of you on that day.”

@a_day_at_the_fair:  I’m still inviting them, even the ones who said that they won’t be able to make it. I figure that since I’ve already extended the verbal invite, I’m going to give them an invitation I worked so hard on!

All of my side of the guest list is college friends  who live all over the country.  They all got save the dates and the response has been surprising!  Here I am thinking there’s no way all these broke college grads can make it and most of them ARE COMING!!

Send invites.  You never know who will surprise you!  (plus its fun to get YES rsvps back from the people you least expected to make it.  It makes you feel loved and who doesn’t like that???)
