@BigKTibs41:  I think it’ll be okay. She may have purposely not wanted to bother you because she gets to see you all the time and a lot of people there probably don’t. I know that at a wedding I went to for a coworker (who was the groom), I spoke briefly to the bride (basically, you look beautiful!) and didn’t speak to the groom at all… they were really busy talking to family and friends from out of state, and I would see him Monday or Tuesday at work (they were delaying their honeymoon a month or so). I bet she’ll come up to you at work and tell you how much she enjoyed the wedding and how beautiful you looked, and that she didnt’ want to steal you from your other guests.

@BigKTibs41:  I would try not to stress about this. Like you said, you said hello to them after the ceremony. I personally don’t care if the bride/groom talk to me at weddings because I know how much they have going on, but I might be more progressive on the “etiquette” surrounding that. 

If she seems sore about it still, then go ahead and tell her you were sorry you didn’t get a chance to speak with them at the reception. I see it as a 2 way street though – she surely could have come up to you at some point in the evening.

@BigKTibs41:  Just go up to her and say- OMG I am so sorry we realised the day after the wedding that we didn’t get a chance to personally thank you for coming. It was such a crazy hectic night. We really appreciate you celebrating our wedding with us. Did you have a good time?

I agree with j_jaye – even if this lady isn’t upset, you’ll have all your bases covered. It sounds like you and your husband made a good effort to chat with all your guests! Don’t beat yourself up over this 🙂
