Why don’t you just tell them exactly what happened?  That you sent them a STD to their old address but it was returned to you, that it took you awhile to find their new address and you were still going to send them one.

I would just tell them exactly what you wrote here.  It was just a misunderstanding and you didn’t mean for anyone’s feelings to be hurt.  It’s only 2 weeks, you can redeem yourself…it’s not like it was months and there was no excuse for you to not  have sent it.  Just be honest.  Good Luck

Do you still have the envelope of the original STD? Just show them and make a joke out of it! Anyone could understand an honest mistake.

I would repackage the STD in a new envelope along with a note explaining what happened. That way they will know for sure that it’s not a change of heart on your part.

Just tell them the truth, they will understand, you are planning a wedding and not responsible to get every one’s new address immediately. I think it’s fine.

If it had been months and months, I would feel like it was a pity invite. This situation is totally understandable and I wouldn’t be offended at all if it was me!

Just explain the situation. She’ll either believe you and be cool with it or you won’t. The best you can do is tell the truth.

I agree with the others.  Just tell her about it, she will totally understand especially since they just moved.

I had 3 people’s Save-The-Date Cards come back. I let them know what happened and I resent it. They were fine with it.
