Hello all I've sent wedding invites out and people has to go to post office to collect (embarrassing) as they were too thick! People had to pay 11p. One of my friends has not received invite and says she has looked etc and will go post office when off on Friday. However if it isn't there do I resend? The issue is we have one invite left and want it as a souvenir!

Just tell her the details?

Yes I would resend and ask her to keep hold of it so you can have it back as a souvenir, she is unlikely to want to keep it for herself

Ouch. They'll have had to pay £1 or so processing fee too blush

Just email her the details.

Just tell her the details, it probably turned up at the post office but she wasn't arsed to pay 1 pound handling charge plus the extra postage. I think you need to tell all your guests what has happened .

Yeah there's a processing fee too!

Just email details

Eeeek! blush poor you! Apologies all round to guests I think -but just email the details to friend.

NinkyNonkers Wed 08-Jul-15 18:19:20

Apologies all round and a refund on the day! [Wink]

Can't tell her details she's a dope. I might photocopy inside of card instead and give that to her!

I'm not sure she's the 'dope' hmm and I would resend the invite.

Fluffybear86 Wed 08-Jul-15 18:25:15

Well she is she's scatty. I'll see if it turns up at post office first

Heels99 Wed 08-Jul-15 18:30:38

How is she scatty when you didn't pay the right postage? The fault lies with you.

Fluffybear86 Wed 08-Jul-15 18:32:40

HahHah agreed but we didn't think the cards would be an issue weight or size wise

Kamden Wed 08-Jul-15 18:34:00

Oh dear, ooopsy!

Gosh. How embarrassing for you. I would make sure you personally apologise to all your guests.

Yes, you must send her another invitation (photocopy if necessary). And put enough stamps on this one!

It'll have cost all your guests £1.11.

Were they handmade cards etc or printed ones? If printed I would send her your last one and do another print of of 10 (or whatever minimum is)

bostonbaby Wed 08-Jul-15 18:57:37

I'd send her a photograph of the invitation that you have.
I HATE IT when people don't pay enough postage. Not only does it cost me money but it takes time to have to go and collect it.

Just set up a wedding website with all the details on.
Snail mail is ridiculously expensive these days. Would probably have been cheaper to courier...

I NEVER collect post that I have to pay for

Suggest you get some postcards done sharpish and apologise and reiterate details

Floggingmolly Wed 08-Jul-15 19:31:30

"She's a dope" for not wanting to trek to the Post Office and pay for the privilege of retrieving your invitation, because you ballsed it up?
What a charmer you are; I'd be absolutely mortified in your position.

Peshwari Wed 08-Jul-15 19:31:50

TBH I'd consider having to resend a lot more. I generally wouldn't pick up post if there wasn't enough postage on it and I had to pay the difference plus the handling fee.

mynewpassion Wed 08-Jul-15 19:33:06

hmm on the dope remark.

Donthate Wed 08-Jul-15 19:35:27

How embarrassing. Are you sure everyone else has received their invite?

hibbledibble Wed 08-Jul-15 19:35:29

I would call round the guests you have sent invites to, and also to apologise profusely if they have had to go to pay excess postage.

Up to you whether you text/email/post invite to friend.

ENormaSnob Wed 08-Jul-15 19:45:20

Oh god i bet you're mortified.

I also never collect mail that wasn't paid for correctly.
