I truely believe that the only reason the post office is still in business is because of weddings!  The branch in my area was such a pain when it came to mailing our save the dates and invitations (not allowing hand cancelling, scolding me about the return address being printed on the back, the thickness of my envelopes, etc).  I know a few people didn’t received their invitation too which is really frustrating because I spent so much time on them.  Now if I could only get my guests to send the RSVPs back….

We had the same happen to our invites but our envelopes were antique gold with white calligraphy.  I thought it might’ve been due to the postman not being able to read the calligraphy…LOL…but we got the RSVP’s back fine…

Oh no.. I ordered burgundy envelopes! I was planning on doing gold calligraphy but hopefully the postman can read it! 😯

Even worse that the return address was unreadable too! 🙁

I’d contact all your guests right away, not wait until the rsvp is due. Otherwise, if someone didn’t get the invite you aren’t giving them enough time to make arrangements for your wedding. You can set up an online rsvp and email everyone the information as a back-up.

The issue with dark envelopes from what I was told is that the computer reader that processes them cannot view the address properly…hence why fancy fonts are tricky.

Sorry this happened. I’d reach out now to the most important guests and just ask if they received the invitation…not whether they are coming.
