My partner has a very…..strange family. Basically his father had three sets of kids with three different women. My SO being the oldest and having always lived with his Dad has lived with all of them at some point growing up. But lets just say after his Dad died there has been real relationships between the groups of step siblings.
We have gotten back in touch with the younger ones and see them every now and then. We both want to invite the other group to our wedding as well, but have no contact details for them. I did message them through FB, as they are friends on my SOs page, I explained that we really wanted them to come, and that I needed postal addresses to send the invites out. 2 weeks later no replies at all. No thanks but no thanks, no addresses, nothing.
Do you think I should pursue this to get an invite to them, or take their lack of response as an unable to attend RSVP?

Try again. People forget to reply sometimes (seems weird to me, but it happens a lot). And I’d still set aside some invitations to be ready to send if they reply late.
We’ve had to ask some people three or four times for an address. I don’t get it, but, whatever.

I’m very guilty of never responding to FB messages. I see them as notifications on my phone, and plan to respond to the them later when I’m on my laptop (HATE typing on my touch screen phone). Then it slips my mind and i’ll remember weeks later and be too embarrassed to respond so late.
Keep persuing it. At least give it a second shot so they can’t turn around and blame you somehow for not getting invited.

I’d give it a second shot, or have your SO reach out to them directly. Honestly, I never answer facebook messages… I always forget that they’re there, and then two months later I see them and realize, oops…

Thanks ladies, I think I will get him to give it another go. I feel weird hounding them seeing as I have never met them….
@abbie017: We don’t ave any contact details for them, hence the FB message. Its the only way we know to get in touch with them. So yeah, I will get him to try again.
