"Forgot" to send an invite. I feel awful. Am I overreacting?

CestTresJolie14:  The last thing she would want is for you to be bent out of shape for being human. I would send  her a handwritten note apologizing for the error and thanking her for her understanding. Follow up with an invitation for coffee or drinks after the honeymoon when you are settled.

Why didn’t you mail her an invitation instead of relying on your cousin’s wife to get it to her?

CestTresJolie14:  deep breath. It does happen to everyone! It’s possible that the person you gave it to forgot and just wanted to cover for forgetting too. Personal experience: a few of our invitations got lost in the mail. One was a really good family friend who came to my bridal shower but apparently never got my invitation. Another was my husband’s biological mother. Yikes. And at least you called when you noticed the lack of response! 

Your wedding’s almost upon you. Things like this happen and it’s not the end of the world. At least the person wasn’t upset and resentful! Best wishes for your wedding and marriage!

I don’t think this is uncommon. With so many guests some things are bound to be mixed up. I’m sorry that she has other planes, but it sounds like she was ok with it. Try not to worry too much, things like this happen
