So we sent out shower thank yous a few weeks ago, everything had a correct address (and a return address) and correct postage. We meet up with some family members the other day and they say “oh we heard your thank you cards were just lovely, too bad we never got to see one”. WHAT?! Ugh I sent them a thank you, now they think I am a jerk. I explained it but they seemed somewhat doubtful that we mailed it. How am I supposed to know if people received their thank yous? Should I call everyone a week or 2 after mailing them to make sure? That seems weird. Apparently another person never got an invitation either. I am so annoyed.

Ugh that sucks. Totally frustrating. I’d just send them another card/invite and hope the rest got there. Did you send Save the Dates? If I got a save the date and not an invite I’d probably contact the mom of the bride to check if I was un-invited or the invite got lost.
I’m sure they believe you sent it. Why would you send to everyone else and not them?
Stupid postal service…

@viewfrmhere: The person who didn’t get the invite realized it because they got the save the date. They knew they were invited but never rsvp’d (because they couldn’t lol) so when we called them to ask if they were coming they said “oh yeah I’m coming but I never got an invitation!”. As far as I know that’s the only person to not get an invite. I didn’t get a few rsvp’s back either but the people said they mailed them. Seriously how hard is it to get my mail mailed?!? This is why people do everything online now! Luckily we have all our responses now (except guests who for whatever reason are maintaining “maybe”) now I just have to worry about thank you cards.
