At least you are getting responses.  We have around 20 guests that keep saying maybe.  It is frustrating.  We had to follow up with 38%.

So they’re courtesy invites. Meaning, you didn’t really want to invite them but you felt you “had to” for whatever reason. It seems like a bit of a double standard to expect people you didn’t want to invite in the first place to rank your wedding as a high priority event to attend. It stands to reason that if you don’t feel close to them then they feel the same way and prioritized your wedding accordingly? Regardless, they don’t owe you a reason why they’re not going.
