More advice needed :)

OK, can you tell I am really down to the nitty gritty now?

If I heard from people after the Save the Date went out that they will not be able to make it, do I still send them a formal invite?

I think YES, because I don't want to leave them out

or NO, because I don't want them to think I am asking for a gift

Example - 2 of the couples that I know cannot make it are not people that I know, they are parent's co-workers, but there are 2 other couple who I know cannot make it and they are close friends.

What do you think?

i struggled with this one...but not for long. i'm sending one...because it just seems polite. and i worked so hard on them..that i want to share them with the world..and who knows...they may change their mind.

hi there! the "correct" answer is to send one to them - you never know if their plans might change!

I agree with Ami, send them anyway because they could have easily changed plans.

Etiquette says you are still to send an invitation in the event plans have changed. If nothing else, they might love to have it as a keepsake!

I say send one. It shows that you are thinking of them and that they are important to you. Plus who knows, something may pop up and they are suddenly able to make it.

If you've sent them a save-the-date, it's only proper to follow with an invitation. An invitation is not a request for presents, it's a request for their presence. You never know, they might change their plans...

You should still send the invitation. Trust me- you would regret it later if not. And who knows- things can change and they might be able to come after all. Great question though.
