Awww, I’m sorry.  I can imagine that it makes you feel bad. It seems to be a general trend these days that people don’t saying anythingg.  I kinda expect that from some fam members too.

I don’t know if this is a good idea, but instead of letting people know how dissapointed you are, let people know how happy you are about the cards you got (just don’t mention the number).  If you were to write something on facebook like “Had such an amazing wedding, thank you everyone for your gifts and cards they are a wonderful memento to a wonderful day” – maybe more people would think “oh crap, I want to be a part of that” and send a card.  

If that doesn’t work, maybe have a third party (parent) casually mention something.

Hope you get some good news (and cards!)

You know, that would make me sad, too.

A card is not a big deal. And it gives you something to keep as a reminder that they were happy for you on your big day. I love making cards, so people probably get sick of me…but I think they are special!

Just let the people that gave you cards know how much you appreciated it. The other ones are stinkers and should feel bad that they didn’t at least write ‘love’ and their names on a folded piece of cardboard!

Whatever happened to people acting like it is a gift to be invited to a wedding and to be actually excited for a couple? Now I feel like a lot of the times people think that they are doing the couple a favor by showing up.
