Did you have anyone who was invited to your wedding not recieve their invitation? We had our first today, and I’m a little embarassed. What did you do? We don’t really have extra invitations to send them, but I feel like sending a Facebook message would be tacky. Is there a middle ground I’m missing? Help!
(PS: The invite was definitely sent to the correct address, only one town over from ours. It makes me worry about the others that haven’t made it to their destination. Guess we’ll find out when we start calling the no RSVPs?)

Do you have a PDF of your invite? You could email that to them, otherwise facebook or email is fine. You can’t do anything about it if you have no extras.

Or that old fashioned thing- the phone? Followed up by an email with the informaton they need.

We had one situation like that: My grandfather’s sister. In retrospect, I probably should have called when we never got an RSVP but she is rather dramatic and goes for periods of time without talking to anyone in the family. I just assumed this was one of those deals- lol.
I would just shoot them an e-mail or a phone call. I don’t think you need to go to the trouble of scanning an invite. You could also refer the person to your wedding website if there’s a bunch of info there.

How do you know? Did the mail send it back to you? Or did the person tell you they haven’t received it? If the person told you, then a facebook message would be fine IMO. Or you could buy another envelope at Wal Mart and send it again. If you’re worried about cost, then definitely call them or e-mail them. But depending on who the person is, I’m sure they don’t care whether it’s on facebook or not once they realize the situation!

I think it would be nice to get the info in written form, even if you just get a blank card and scan/print the details.

@julies1949: I’ve never talked to these people on the phone before. I guess I could… but it might be pretty akward.
@kperry3: I found out through my mom, who had heard from her cousin.
I think I’ll try to find their actual e-mail address and send an e-mail with the situation. Hopefully they’ll believe me when I tell them they really *were* invited and it was lost in the mail. I’d hate for them to feel like they guilted me into an invite or whatever.
