Question by Laura M: Should I send invitations to people who declined the Save-the-date?
If someone e-mails me to tell me that they can’t come to my wedding after they received the Save-the-date card, should I still send them an invitation? On one hand, I feel like I should, since the Save-the-date card implies that they will get an invitiation. On the other hand, if they said no, I don’t want them to feel like I sent them an invitation just so that I could get a gift. What is the etiquette on this?
I really like the idea of asking them whether they want the invitation or not. Some of my friends like to keep those things and, yet, I don’t want to appear to be asking for gifts. And, no, I definitely am not putting ANY registry information in my invitations. Thanks – this has been really helpful.

I would say no. It would be a waste of postage and you already know they won’t be able to attend.
You could ask if they would like to have an invitation as a keepsake since they can’t be there, then hand deliver it to them, minus the response card and such.
