    I only heard from a few. FI’s sister and one of our friends in Germany both let us know, as did one friend in Australia, and two friends in America. Like you, I also put a lot of effort into handmaking all my invitations. I don’t expect to hear from people I don’t talk to regularly, but I would have expected people that I am in contact with frequently to have mentioned getting theirs. Oh, well. I guess they figure they let you know it arrived when they send back their RSVP card. Of course, some people aren’t even doing that, so…

    Just a few of my closest friends mentioned they were so excited to get it.  A couple of others also mentioned liking it.  This is the very reason I decided not to DIY my invites.  Everyone always says they’re a labor of love and I thought that it would go unappreciated.  Even though I ordered them, it was a long proofing process, I made address labels, obsessed about the stamps, etc. so it would have been nice to hear from more folks but people just don’t care about that stuff it seems.

    I hear ya, only a handful said they got it. I LOVE my invitations. But no one really cares which is unfortunate. I just keep telling myself: no one cares as much about your wedding as you do.  Kind of helps, still feels shitty though!

    We only had a couple people acknowledge the invites upon reciept in any form other than an RSVP.  I think that’s just normal– no need to call or email to let you know it arrived because you are going to send in an RSVP.

    I had mainly friends tell me that they got their invites in the mail.  I had no more than 10 people say they got it.  I think it was less than ten but yeah.  Not that many — we mailed out close to like 40?  So I mean a good chunk of people said something.  Everyone loved our invites which made me happy.  I love them too — I have one framed to put on display in our home.
