Can your parents spread word of mouth to family that you might have left those out? Maybe you can email your friends? 

If you thought you ran out towards the end, did you follow a list? 

When you don’t receive some RSVPs, you’ll have to follow up anyway.

Domt feel embarrassed, mistakes happen!

I agree with @PinkPinstripes (cute username!). You’ll be following up on missing RSVPs. You’ll know then. I don’t think anyone will be mad at you! They received an invitation so it’s not like you FORGOT about them. You did intend on inviting them and you did.

I don’t think anyone will be annoyed–maybe confused, but in the end, people are not automatons. If I got an invite without an rsvp, I’d probably contact the couple myself (heck, traditional etiquette would say that guests are to respond on their own stationery–with their own stamp and everything!).

I wouldn’t have a problem with you emailing everyone you can. Most likely, if anything people will be relieved they can just hit “reply” and perhaps chuckle at your minor oversight!
