Guestlist Mixup 2, and this one's a doozy!
We realized we forgot to send out an invite to a dear friend back in March, so I figured we had worked out all our guest list kinks. Wrong! We forgot somebody else, too. Our church is currently between pastors, and we've had a number of guest pastors in the interim period. One has been a great friend to us, particularly in the last few months as Marc thinks about attending seminary. I would say we forgot to send him an invitation, but that would imply we thought of it in the first place. He's just one of those random floating people, you know- not in our church directory, not a regular attendee we see every week out in the pews, not a Facebook friend. We made an announcement at church that all of our church family was invited, but he didn't happen to be there that week. He was doing all of our Holy Week services, and I realized Thursday night, uh oh, we totally forgot Pastor. Then Marc heard Friday from one of the old ladies that Pastor had mentioned to her that he wasn't invited. Ouch. That made it even worse- then when I gave him an invite on Saturday (7 days before the wedding!), he probably thought I only did it because he mentioned it to somebody, and that's not true at all! Oh well. Pastor, if you're out there, know that we love you and your presence is much desired at the wedding!
