    I’d say yes. If you have the extra invites and ability to do so I feel like it’s a nice gesture.

    I agree that you should anyway.  Also, I have a few older family members who expect one even if they can’t make it, and they’ll only send a present if they do get an invitation!

    I would. There were several older relatives on my guest list that I was 99% sure wouldn’t come but I sent the invite anyway.

    I’d say yes but you could include a personal note stating you know they already declined but you wanted to invite them just incase something in their situation changed

    I’m sending invites to everyone on our list. Many of my relatives and friends in the States have already told us they won’t be able to be at our wedding, but I am still sending them the invites. If it were me I would still want the invitation even though I couldn’t attend.

    A must. I’m having a Destination Wedding and I know 98% of the people I’ve sent an invite to, aren’t able to come, but it’s the thought..it’s including them that makes all the difference. I’ve had several people say they were honored to get an invitation.

    Yes, I think you should.

    I was actually a little hurt that one of my friends who is having a Destination Wedding that she knows I cannot attend didn’t send me an invite. I am sending her an invite even though I know she can’t come to my wedding…

    I had the same issue.I’m having a destination wedding as well. Several people already said that they are not coming. I was not going to invite them, but my aunt and mother told me that that’s rude and will cause family drama. So I have to.

    I am sending invitations to people I know will not be coming to my wedding.

    I sent invitations to people I was quite sure would not be able to make it, but I wanted them to know I was thinking of them and that they mattered and also just in case on the off chance they would be able to make it, so I say yes!
