Nothing rude about sending a quick email, hey Sally, long time no talk, I hope all is well, Joe and I got engaged and are going to be getting married in September; could I have your address please so we can send you an invite?

Anyone who finds that rude probably shouldn’t be on the guest list.

As for people not being happy for you, firstly I don’t think someone who doesn’t respond, or only responds “congrats”, is not happy for you; some people just do not get really emotional or even very active on text messages or emails. And some people  would likely respond more excitedly if you were to take the time to actually call them.  Texting sure is easy, but it’s not personal, and that might have a bit to do with how people replied.

But you also need to set your expectations accordingly. You will hear many times that “no one is as excited about your wedding as you are,” and that is 100% absolutely true. Some people will wish you well, but from a distance, and go on with their lives; don’t expect flowers and puppydogs from everyone you contact.
