I just have to vent about the wedding invitation nightmare I’m experiencing right now. I just spent the last 5 hours printing out, stuffing and tying ribbon on invitations. I was SO proud of myself when I finished all of them in one sitting. Then, to my horror, I realized that I accidentally wrote, ‘twenty-nineth’ instead of ‘twenty-ninth.’ These are THE cutest Brides Magazine invites from Michael’s, not just something i’m printing up off of photoshop. So now I have to go back and re-buy the same stinking set of invites x3, and reprint and re-stuff all of them tomorrow. I want to cry!! 🙁 🙁 🙁

Ok honey, Breath!
honestly…. If you sent them as is I don’t think anyone will notice. I had to read the sentence like 6 times to figure out what the difference is. People don’t read by indivdual letters. They read the entire word as a whole. which is why you can raed smoetihig lkie tihs. Send them out… it will be ok!

@EllieMay929: Oh what a shame, I would be pissed too. I hate doing things twice and wasting money.

@Bride7844: The date is correct but spelled incorrectly.
OP: Unless your invites are super cheap, take a deep breath, realize no one will notice, and send them out. If you’re unsure, have a couple friends/family members look at your invites and see if they notice it

Thanks guys. Luckily they were from Michael’s and were relatively inexpensive. So I’m going to buy new sets and use the extra RSVP cards as reception cards. At least i didn’t send them out and then notice! I did the same thing when printing my engagement party invites. Apparently I need to hire a professional proof-reader lol. Thanks for the sympathy and suggestions! I appreciate it. 🙂

If it’s any consolation, my cousin put the WRONG ADDRESS on her invites for her ceremony site!! When I noticed it, and pointed it out to her she was like…Meh…I’m not worried about it, and sent them out anyway! I was terrified for her, but everyone showed up!

I realized I had the wrong zip code on my return address after we sent out our STDs. I just figured that everyone got them though because I had JUST asked everyone for their addresses! hopefully none get returned to some random address!

People won’t notice.
Funny story: I actually went to a wedding last spring where the bride did the SAME thing and spelled ninth wrong. I mentioned it to her (it came up in convo later on, I’m not mean) and she said I was the only one who noticed and she didn’t catch it!

@EllieMay929: That sucks 🙁 Sounds like a nightmare for sure. But at least you realized it *before* they were sent out.

I would send them out as is.

the thing with numbers being spelled out, most people picture the number and don’t completely read it. Most won’t notice.
It’s up to you, but if it was expensive and time consuming(i’m sure it was!) I would leave it. It doesn’t make your information incorrect.

I highly doubt anyone would notice but I know as a bride this would bug me too and I would seriously consider re doing them. With that being said most people don’t look too hard at your invitation. Unless maybe it is the most prominent part of the invite. I will also say that someone in my brother and sister in laws wedding program was listed incorrectly and no one noticed.
