- Wedding: August 2009
I am sitting here at work and feeling a little perplexed and let down
A few weeks ago I sent out my Save The Date cards.
The 1st batch was sent out about 2 weeks ago and the other set were sent out this past weekend.
Everyone who was receiving a card knew we were engaged.
If we had not spoken with them directly, they heard thru the family grapevine.
So it is not as if I thought the Save the Dates would come as a surprise.
I thus didn’t expect everyone to call and email with congrats. I got a lot of that right when we became engaged.
But at the same time, I expected SOME type of response.
I would have bet money that we were going to receive excited emails saying that they had received the card.
On the cards I listed our wedding website which I had made. The site lists both of our email addresses so that people know how to contact us.
These cards were very exciting for me. I had worked hard on them and they were they 1st step of sending out invitations.
To me, they were basically our engagement announcements.
There are some friends who I talk to on a daily basis. These are people I did not expect to hear from.
They had received daily emails for weeks about all my wedding planning ideas
But there were close family friends or long distance friends that I really thought would have contacted us.
A couple days after the cards went out, I started checking my email in the mornings excited about the possibility about getting an email saying that they had gotten our card and had seen our wedding website. I was really excited for people to see the website I have worked on too.
I am not sure exactly what I expected, but it was not this.
I have not received a single email.
No one has confirmed that they have even received a card. Not counting the few friends that I asked.
I understand that I am an obsessed bride right now.
I understand that this wedding is the biggest thing ever to me……and only me
To other people…..it’s just another wedding
I cannot expect people to share all my excitement.
But at the same time, I am a little hurt that I didn’t hear anything.
Especially considering how confident I felt that I was going to get all these emails.
Can other brides relate to this?
Can you offer advice or at least stories or your own?
