I have a few guests that have lost my invitations and want new ones. I’m running really low on invitation supplies and postage, not to mention that it was pretty time consuming to make them all (and I was so relieved to finally be done with them just a week and a half ago!). I guess it would be best to just make them all new invitations so they can properly respond and send back their RSVP cards, but has anyone else encountered this problem too? Should I mail them to these guests again or should I just hand them a new one?

Personally, I wouldn’t send them a new one. Do you have a website? If so, you can direct them there for all the info that they need and they can RSVP via phone with you. I’m sorry, but it’s just IMO, a pain to send them more.

IMO, I would NOT send them a new one. It is not your responsibility if they lose their invite. They can give you their response via email or phone and as Miss Saphire said if you have a website, you can post all the information that they need on there.
Save your time, effort and money!

I agree. I wouldn’t send them a new one, either. As Miss Sapphire suggested, I would send them to a website, i.e. theknot where they can RSVP online. They can get all the same information that was on the invitation and you can handle their RSVP electronically.

That’s a very strange request…and I’d be a little miffed if it were me. I wouldn’t send them new ones personally, I wouldn’t have the patience or the inclination even if I did have extras. I would just send them an email with the info or direct them to your weddign website and ask that they RSVP by whatever date via email then. If you feel that the best solution for you is to send new ones then by all means go ahead!

I sent every blessed invitation out. I don’t even have one as a memento! If you have a web site with info, refer them to that or send the info via e-mail.

No I would not resend. You can tell them you’re out and direct them to a wedding website. That’s so rude of them!

I wouldn’t send additional invites. Direct them to a website or offer to email them the information. They can RSVP via email, phone call, or mail if they choose to take the initiative. Making/delivering new invites sounds like more stress for you, and I’ve never heard of anyone even asking! Try not to worry too much about it; do what works for you. If you want to make them, then do. It seems to be the consensus here that you don’t have to if you don’t want to! It’s all about what works best for you!

Nope, I agree — don’t resend. Do you have a PDF of your invite file you could print and share with them? Otherwise, just pass along a helpful website or the essential information!

In the back of my mind it makes me think that they gave it to someone! The horrors!

What. Omg. I cannot believe that if someone lost their invite, they’d ask for you to give them a new one. Some invitations are very expensive, not to mention all the time it takes to make them.
I would create a website like some have said and have them RSVP on there.

Ok, so in your busy life you are supposed to find time to make out a new invite for someone who lost theirs? Sorry, no. I think they are barking up the wrong tree. It would be different to call someone and say "Hey I lost your invitation but we were planning on coming can you give me the details quick?" I can’t believe they even asked for another invite. Wow. Just wow.

website or PDF file of invitaion is all you have to do…..
sad sad guests are so irresponsible and with the economy and the costs of wedding as a Mom, I’m just disappointed in so much lack of what I would call GOOD SOCIAL MANNERS….. seems like we have a post an hour at least with issues.

Thats pretty presumptious of them! I mean say if you had ordered them rather than done fabulous DIY work…you would have a limited number and most places wont reprint a small number without huge set up fees. It is pretty rude to assume you would pay extra money just because THEY lost the one you were gracious enough to have sent them.
