@futuremrste:  I think it is better than not being invited! It sounds like you caught it early enough they wont really notice! If they say anything you can always say something like “yea its weird my mom just got hers in the mail too! Stupid post office!” or if you think theyd know just say you missed a handful of people on your invite list and had to order more but make it sound as if they werent the only ones

We made a booboo ourselves and forgot to invite my husband’s uncle.  Since he travels a lot, he’s not really around like the other siblings of his parents so it just slipped our mind.

We sent him an invite and just made our apologies.  He understood but unfortunately couldn’t make it.

I’d give her invite by hand and just explain that with everything going on, it just slipped your mind and she absolutely should have gotten one in the first place.  Oversights happen and she’ll either understand or not. Good luck!
