No reply or acknowledgement of invites we have sent out. Whoops on the typo in the title
My wedding is in July 2017. We sent out our invites at around the end of Jan so people had enough warning to let their work know in times as a lot of people going to the wedding work in health care, social care etc plus its the summer holidays during our wedding and many people go abroad then so they need a lot of warning.
What got to me was, about 90% of people I sent invites to didn't even send me a message to say thank you or that they even received the invite. I know that no one can tell me if they can 100% make it atm which is fine but at least a thank you or letting me know they got the invite and that it didn't get lost in the post would have been nice. It was mainly people from my partner's side such as his aunts who just totally ignored the invite so sooner or later, I'm going to have to chase them all up and see what is happening.
I'm just a bit hurt as we made the invites ourselves which took a lot of time. To be fair though, I don't really know much about weddings so maybe this is the norm.
Sorry if this seems really shallow and petty, just having one of those days, I think!
