It’s always an honor to receive a wedding invitation and know that a couple wants you to celebrate their big day with them. However, not making the guest list can feel like a real blow when you thought you would be.

36-year-old bride-to-be Donna Sidebotham was heartbroken when her good friend Chris Kimber never RSVP’d to her wedding invitation. However, Kimber never actually received an invite and thought he had just been forgotten despite attending the engagement party.
