This is a totally weird idea, but is it possible they zoned out and didn’t recognize his name? Can FI’s parents tactfully look into it?

Very stange.  I would just move on.  There are a lot of inexpensive places to get things printed.  So sorry that they backed out on you though!

Uggghh, that stinks!!! Maybe there’s something going on with the company (they made too many “for free” offers) that nobody knows about, not even FI’s family?

Sorry to hear that – maybe they got cold feet about having to do it.  That’s really poor form on their part!

Nonetheless, I agree with the other posters – I would just let it go and find a vendor that would love to contribute to your wedding versus one that is reluctant.  Definitely look at Etsy and their alchemy function!

That stinks! And it’s the problem with getting things for free, you usually can’t depend on people if they aren’t motivated by money.

Did you respond to the email? If I were you, I wouldn’t let them get away with it that easy. I’d say something like “I am very surprised at your response, is there a reason why you no longer do social invitations? Also, I wish you would have told us sooner as we were counting on getting them from you after your generous offer to help us out”.

Sounds kind of harsh, but it’s a perfectly appropriate response after the way they treated you.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I would be so mad and frustrated! Best of luck with figuring this whole thing out.

My first thought was the same as snowflake’s, especially since their response seems so business-like! 

That really stinks!
