Hello Ladies,

I wouldn't. If you already know their reply- save the $.

I sent them one anyway. I thought it was the polite thing to do but I know that not everyone does. I personally wouldn't get offended if someone doesn't send me an invite after I got verbally invited and said no but I know some people just love to create drama over that. My fiancé didn't want to send them one haha

Typically I would say no, but I just had some drama that surrounded this.

I didn't send a STD but when my girlfriend found out I was marrying in Mexico she said (in so many words) to count her out and take a lot of pictures for her.  So I didn't send her an invite. Well I found out recently she's been miffed about it for months. I explained myself and got no reply. So onwards and upwards.

 

So that said, if it was a firm no and no wishy washy, I wouldn't send one. If you have doubt in your mind, send one!

Good advice, that is what I was thinking. If it is a firm no (aka will have a newborn or already had another trip booked) then I won't.  But if its probably no, I'll send one just in case.

 

Thanks!  Just wanted to make sure I wasn't being rude if I didn't send one to everyone.

I was just thinking about this same thing. I decided to send them anyway, since on our STD's I did put that a formal invitation will follow. Who knows, we sent those out many months ago so maybe by the time we send invites some things could have changed for people and they may be able to make it after all!

I did because Martha Stewart told me so lol, but looking back, I would rather have saved the time and money since we DIY

I have been having this dilemma too you never know who you will upset, so think I will send them one anyway.

I didn't send an invite to the people so already said no - which was all my extended family. The fact that it was a destination wedding was not well received.

Now family has been asking so I just explained that we are still going away but are keeping it small - they seem to understand.

 

I think if you don't want to send them then don't. But if it's going to eat away at you and you're going to feel bad/guilty about it then send them.

We used paperless post and had an email invite
