Can you help me fix my invite mistake please?
Here's my situation... FI and I went to high school together in a fairly small town, so a number of our high school friends are invited. Of course it was difficult deciding where to draw the line with invitations, but as we all know, you just can't invite everybody. We made a list, sent our save the dates in January, then invites a few weeks ago.
We spent the past weekend a the wedding of another friend from high school with almost all the same people as we've invited to our wedding.... except we realized that we failed to invite one couple and really wish we would have. They are friends that we don't see all that often, but we always have a great time with them and really, we probably should have invited them all along. They are in the same "circle" as the other people we have invited; I don't know why we didn't.
When I mentioned to my mom that I really wished we would have included them, she suggested that I call the girl and just be honest. Say, "Look, we had such a great time this past weekend. I know we don't see each other all that often anymore, and that's probably how we missed you on our original STD list. We would really love for you to be with us on our wedding day though." They'll obviously know that invites are already out, but I don't really see this as a "B List" situation. It's not like I only want them to come now because other people have RSVP'd no; we just honestly didn't think of them before and are kicking ourselves for it. But what do you guys think? SHould I reach out to her or is that just pointing out the fact that we didn't invite them in the first place?
