If you had just sent an STD and they just verbally told you no (i.e. informally) then I would send a formal invite to get their final answer. But, they RSVP'ed no from the start. Otherwise, there was really no point of doing an RSVP in the first place.

We asked for people to pre-RSVP to our Save-the-Dates just to give us an idea of how many people are thinking of coming. Now, in our case we said that it was an informal RSVP and that we realized that things may change for people in the next year.
FI thinks that for those that say no, they should not get an invite. He feels like it's redundant if they've already said they are not coming! Almost like we're bugging them to come?
I totally disagree. Everyone is going to get an invite that got an STD because people might change their minds and it doesn't seem fair to essentially un-invite people just because they RSVP'd no at this time.
I think I'm winning the argument because those that have said no via our website have all left comments to the effect that they hope to maybe find a way to come, but in at this point if they had to decide it would be a no. So, I'm definitely going to still invite them because maybe they will be able to make it! I don't want to take that choice away.
