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.

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.
