I hadn't talked with my college roommate since we graduated a couple years ago (she's rather shy, and I'm rather bad at keeping in touch). Anyways, she asked if I would be interested in attending her wedding and if I would mind if she used a drawing I drew of her plus the fiance back before they were engaged. I said of course, that I would love to be there and it'd be awesome if she used my artwork for their wedding playbill/program. I gave her my email address, and we emailed off and on for a bit.
It's now two months later, and I haven't received my invitation. Is it inappropriate to ask the bride-to-be if the invite got lost in the mail?
I'm really trying not to be an asshat. Thanks.

Dear GTB (aka Not An Asshat),
Nope. That is not at all inappropriate.
Those monster envelopes actually do get lost in the mail -- or returned-to-sender for lack of postage, which can take weeks -- and you wouldn't want your old roomie to think you were blowing her off by not responding to the invitation.
