If she received it but hasn’t called you it is probably because 1) she wants to say no, but doesn’t know how to or 2) she is just really busy and hasn’t had a chance to call you yet.

If you haven’t heard from her by tomorrow afternoon or Sunday, give her a call.  Just ask her if she got something special in the mail.  If she wants to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man she will probably tell you yes right away.  If you sense she is hesitating, than be gracious and jump in and say you know she will be busy with her wedding and you understand if she doesn’t want to be a BM/don’t expect her to do much if she is a BM/whatever….

I am having the exact same issue.  But the person that hasn’t responded is Future Sister-In-Law…..unless it is completely lost in the mail I don’t see how she hasn’t gotten it.  2 of the other girls live within a few miles of her and there’s arrived on the same day all in one piece.  What to do what to do!!!!

Hi there, I just went through EXACTLY the same thing, having sent cards to my bridesmaids.  I was missing two responses and was starting to fret when I got letters in response from both of them.  They mentioned that the card was so special they thought it warranted a handwritten response!  So sweet.

Santababs has a good point – because that’s exactly what I did. When my friend sent me a beautiful little card asking me to be her Maid/Matron of Honor, I first made myself think it over for 24 hours because it is a big commitment, and then I spent a day or two working on the perfect handwritten response. I inadvertently made the bride nervous that I hadn’t gotten it or I didn’t want to participate, which wasn’t my intention at all.

Do you ever e-mail with her? You could just drop her a casual e-line asking "did you get anything in the mail from me?" This is what my bride-friend eventually did, and I responded, "yep, and you should be getting something in the mail from me soon!" 

I had just wanted the response to be as special as the request… that might be what your friend is doing, too.
