We sent out our wedding invitations last week. I have had two people mention that they did not get a RSVP and reception card with their invitation. This was an oversight on my part. We had thought we ran out of RSVP and reception cards near the end of the last few, but then we found them later. I must have forgotten to put the cards in some. Two people mentioned it to me, but I am afraid that this has happened to more people that I may not know about. I feel so embarrassed about this, because I am normally so careful about this! I don’t want to anger anybody or make anybody feel left out. I have no way to track how this happened.
Any advice on how to handle this? I don’t want anybody to miss out because of my stupid mistake.

Can your parents spread word of mouth to family that you might have left those out? Maybe you can email your friends?
If you thought you ran out towards the end, did you follow a list?
When you don’t receive some RSVPs, you’ll have to follow up anyway.
Domt feel embarrassed, mistakes happen!

I agree with @PinkPinstripes (cute username!). You’ll be following up on missing RSVPs. You’ll know then. I don’t think anyone will be mad at you! They received an invitation so it’s not like you FORGOT about them. You did intend on inviting them and you did.

I don’t think anyone will be annoyed–maybe confused, but in the end, people are not automatons. If I got an invite without an rsvp, I’d probably contact the couple myself (heck, traditional etiquette would say that guests are to respond on their own stationery–with their own stamp and everything!).
I wouldn’t have a problem with you emailing everyone you can. Most likely, if anything people will be relieved they can just hit “reply” and perhaps chuckle at your minor oversight!
