I have a couple elderly family members that I'm planning on sending invitations to even though it highly unlikely that they'll make it to the wedding. (Travel, health etc). I'm mostly just sending them invitations as a sort of keepsake so they don't feel TOTALLY left out.
I'm wondering... should I include a sort of note explaining how much I wish they could be there but understand if they can't make it due to (whatever circumstance). I just don't want it to look stupid, ie my great aunt is quite I'll, and it's pretty much common sense that she's not going to be able to attend... So I don't want to seem stupid or insensitive by sending an invite
ANYWAY. What would you guys do: send an invite as a keepsake? Include a note? Just call then and wish they could make it? Is there a protocol on this sort of thing?
