So we are one month away from our wedding date and just realized we forgot to include one of my fiance’s friends on the invitation list. I feel absolutely horrible because my fiance’s list was a bit of a disaster and I thought I had gone over it hundreds of times to make sure I didn’t miss anyone. And in all of the times that both of us have poured over the list, neither one of us noticed he was missing.
We got in touch with him as soon as we realized the error to apologize and invite him. The flights from his hometown here are still pretty reasonable and he’s coming to the bachelor party, so he knew there was a wedding.
Is there anything else we should do? I feel absoutely horrible because we just missed it.

This may not be a popular response, but here it is: LIE.
Call the friend, said that you wrote the address wrong or whatever, and his invite was returned. Tell him you’ll resend him the invitation, but you just wanted him to know that it was coming.

@AEMalmostK: Have to say I agree with this, there is no need for him to know you forgot him, you didn’t do it on purpose.

Just realised you have said you already phoned to tell him? So not really sure what else you are looking for?

Honestly we all get brain farts from time to time, just tell him that it was a brain fart and that you’re glad to have caught it before it was too late. Anyone who is a true friend will absolutely understand that sometimes things just go a little pear-shaped, and won’t take any slight from it.

i agree with PP about lying.
just say the envelope got returned to you.
i almost forgot my cousin and her husband. didn’t realize it until we were addressing the invites and sorting them into piles by families!

Note to self triple check envelopes! I’m glad he’s still able to make it.

sounds like you’ve already contacted him. That’s all you can do. We’re all human.

Its all you can do, I’m sure he understood the mistake, especially if he was already supposed to attend the bachelor party.

Thanks for the reassurance, ladies. A month out, I am truly starting to lose my mind!
