I JUST dodged a bullet on this when I realised we’d forgotten to do an invite for the fella’s great aunt. I totally forgot about her – luckily our invites haven’t gone out yet so it’s easily fixed but now I’m SUPER paranoid I’ve forgotten someone else! Eeep!

I think people will understand as long as you figure it out now!

I totally did this too and people seemed to understand.  Or at least they told me they did.  One person had moved and didn’t forward her mail.  So she never got the invitation.  So definitely check in with people you haven’t heard from.  They might not have received your invitation and are now thinking they have been forgotten.  It happens to the best of us.  Good luck.

Invitations DO get lost, so you can always pretend you sent it and ask if they received it.

Just blame it on not having the correct address.  I had a few invites that didn’t make it to guests that were returned through the mail and I re-addressed them and sent them out so they got their invitations late.

We had a few invites either get sent back to us b/c of wrong addresses or just get lost completely. I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

If it makes you feel any better, years ago I forgot to invite my (now ex) husband’s step-mother to my shower. I had no idea I’d done it until we were visiting her one day and she offered to throw me a shower. She thought I hadn’t had one since she wasn’t invited. I almost died on the spot.

I still feel bad about that one years and years later. The ex was an idiot, but his step-mother was a nice woman. Oooops.

Don’t feel so bad, things like this happen all the time. I feel like people should keep this kind of thing in mind when they freak out about slights in receiving or not receiving invitations. There are many guests to keep track of, it’s not at all impossible for one to slip through the cracks.
