I would send them a formal invite with the RSVP.  That’s my vote.

Or if you would rather not purchase or make an additional invite you can send them a wedding announcement after the nuptials.

I would not send them an invite. If they can’t make it, they can’t make it, and you could send those invites to people on a B list if you have one!

How long ago did you send the STD? Could their plans have changed? I say send them the formal invite. Maybe they can now come?

 I would also send out formal invites. I’ve not been able to attend weddings before but keep ALL my invites. and KateMW is right plans do change , even for destination weddings.

I would send the formal invite without a stamp.  It says "I know you told me you can’t come, but if things change, here you go!"

Send the invite with reply card just as you would any other guest. They may not remember they told you, you might have forgotten they told you, their plans could change, and they probably would enjoy seeing your invite.  Treat them as you would any other invited guest.
