Well first of all it is your responsibility to see and thank all your guests, not their responsibility to seek you out.. so don’t be upset with them.  I think at this point it would be awkward to try to call and connect.  I would just write a really thoughtful thank you note and let them know how glad you were that they were there to support you and celebrate with you.

A thoughtful, personal thank you note (not a generic thank you) would be appropriate.

I wouldn’t worry too much after the fact. These people were probably enjoying themselves too! And no one is going to come up and interrupt the bride on the dance floor to say hi. Your night is a whirlwind, I doubt anyone will really hold a grudge against you.

At least your husband said hello. Don’t call yourself out with a phone call or in a note, just maybe put a little extra time into their thank you notes.

I kind of had a similar experience.  However I had a receiving line too.  I know a lot of ppl don’t like receiving lines, (which I understand.)  But is the very reason why I still recommend them.  Sometimes the schedule gets off, or we gets busy and can’t make it to all the tables.

Anyway, back to your question.  I actually think you can just let it go.  Perhaps in your thank you note, you can say “The night flew by too fast.  I’m sorry we didn’t get time to chat.  But I wanted you to know how honored we were that you attended.”  But other than that, I just don’t see it as necessary to call them about it, especially if your husbnad acknowledged them.

When you send your thank you notes, just mention how lovely it was to see them looking on as you said your vows or made your entrance. That was they know that you noticed them and appreciated their presence, without calling attention to the fact that you didn’t have a conversation with them.
