So our invites went out a month ago – Last week I realized I forgot a close family friend’s son (we are like family). I invited his grandmother, aunts, sisters, parents – and I forgot him!! I contacted his sister pretending I didn’t know what his address was (I did…) and told her I must have misplaced it because I forgot to get his address (I never even had an invite for him).
Well right now I am realizing I DID IT AGAIN!!!!!! At least I’m 95% sure I did……
I sent out an invite to my older cousin…..I sent one to her son (who is my age)….and I was supposed to send out one to her other son but I’m pretty sure I didn’t! I don’t think her invite was addressed to her, her husband, AND her son – and I don’t think I sent him out a seperate one. I don’t even remember seeing his name on the final guest list!!
WTF?!?! I just sent her an email saying, “I hope T received his invite – haven’t heard back from him yet. I think I sent the invite to your house but I am not sure. Please let me know!”
I’m such a dumbass……

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.

Thanks guys – I just feel like I have so much on my plate and that I’m being a space cadet lately!! :o)
I sent her the message…she wrote back that he didn’t receive one and she didn’t see one in the mail. I told her I was having issues w/ the post office (I was….they charged me two different prices for postage each time I went back….) and that I had already misplaced someone else’s so his may have gotten misplaced. Hopefully he can still come!

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.
