We have been going over our invite list for MONTHS. Both mothers have a copy of it and have also gone over it. My self and my FI went over it one last time last week before we ordered our invites, re checking spelling, names, editing up and down forgotten invites, and we sent it to the printer on Monday. We are having them print on the envelopes for invites.
And yesterday I realized we forgot three invites that we needed;
I feel like a dummy. We already ordered extra invites so they are getting them, and I’m just laughing. Anyone else do something like this?

I forgot a coworker, my grandfather, and someone else (haha whoops I forget that, too)
It worked out because the coworker invite needed just ONE more RSVP envelope but we had run out, and since my FMIL just handed me her card (we moved into her house so it makes sense) I stole her unused envelope to send to them LOL

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
Sometimes the most obvious ones are the ones that get forgotten. FBIL forgot to send us a Save the Date to his wedding. When I met with our florist I knew I was missing one guy that I needed to order a boutonniere for, it was the groom! LOL It happens.
We got told twice we missed someone for Save the Dates, one I just didn’t know about – FI never told me to add them. The other, I still swear I sent them one! I hand addressed them all, but they swear they never got one but not to worry about it. FMIL told them they were of course going to be invited.

We didn’t have that issue with invites, but we keep giving people guest counts and forgetting to add ourselves! Its easy to get lost in all these details!

@Misswhowedding: LOL I think it happens to everyone. I was typing out my list to email to my aunt, dad & sister to look over and in doing so realized I forgot my godmother’s entire family. I laughed, corrected it and sent it over to them. My aunt came back saying she didn’t see her brother… who is catering the wedding! Um… yeah, he’s probably invited then. D’OH!
