...two friends that will not be able to go to our wedding because they are now expecting right around that time? I had sent them STDs back in July.

 

I think etiquitte says to send even if they they have said they will not be able to attend.

In this case, they won't be able to changes plans to go...

What do you think?

Yep, send them. It would be awkward for them to not send an invite after the STD, despite the news that they won't be able to travel due to pregnancy.

 

I always look at the invite like this: The invite is your way of telling these people "we love you and your role in our lives is important enough that we want to share the most memorable day of our lives with you." Invitations are sent based on how we feel about people, and expected response shouldn't influence us in making our decisions on who to send them to. :)

I completely agree ... send them! My ONLY caveat is if, by some fluke, this one invitation is going to push you over your order ... i.e, you have to order 50 or 100 ... and theirs makes 51 ... otherwise - I think they will appreciate knowing you want them there!

We did it a little differently. We sent 2 stds a few months apart and said whoever rsvp'd with a yes would receive a formal invitation later in the year.

 

In our case we had people who couldn't go and they felt really bad about it already. We didn't want to make them feel worse by sending a 3rd thing (invite) reminding them that they can't be there, or to make it seem like their "no" wasn't acceptable and maybe they could change their minds.

I would still send an invite, just to show that you are thinking of them. Obviously they can't come, but you want them to know they are important- at least that's how I looked at it when I did mine.

I'm planning on sending invitations to everyone that I sent STDs to, even if I know they can't come. So, I would send one to them anyway.

I would still send them because you don't want to hurt their feelings. THis way they know you will still be thinking of them on your special day even thought they can't be there in person.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
