I would definitely still send one as a formality! I am even sending one to the priest we asked to perform our ceremony, even though he has another wedding out-of-town that day.

 You may even want to include a short little note expressing a simple "We’ll miss you", so they know you were paying attention when they told you they couldn’t make it. Plus, things change – so maybe they’ll get the invite and decide to change their other plans and try to make it! 🙂

Yup — STD = Invite. People’s plans change and who knows, they may be able to make it after all. I personally would feel like if I told someone I could’t go and they don’t send me an invite, that they would have a grudge or something.

Add a quick handwritten note letting them know that if plans change that you still want them to know they are welcome.

Yes, definitely send one.  I agree with previous posts — plans change, and it’d be an etiquette no-no (hey, sometimes Emily Post knows what she’s talking about!) to not follow a STD with an invitation.  Good luck and hope some of your "no" responders become yeses!
