So I have been mostly lurking as I plan my wedding, but I just had to vent about this because it is the first truly horrible thing that has happened.
I have been sending out invitations like mad because they got here a little bit late, but luckily, I already had my name/address database all checked out.
Or so I thought.
It turns out that my FI had not checked his side properly, and had entered in the names of the children of one of his aunts incorrectly. I know this because their RSVP card came back, with the correct name written in. I am SO EMBARASSED. I thought that having this all done would make it easy, but it doesn’t help if it isn’t correct! So frustrating!!! Should I just apologize and let it go, or is there something else I should do? I can’t really think of what else I could do, but I am just mortified.

Call and make it a laughing apology. “I am so embarrased! I had been writing so many names (or typing etc) and I didn’t even notice. Im so sorry but we are thrilled yall are coming!!” …. type of thing. Everyone knows that wedding planning is crazy and if you blame it on planning making your cross-eyed they will just laugh it off.

Just apologize, but don’t beat yourself up…it happens. I’m sure they will understand.

Take it from someone who has had their name misspelled all her life, don’t stress too much about it.

I agree my name is always mis-spelled don’t worry about it. My brother and SIL just did their thank you cards and mis-spelled my Aunt’s name. So we just tease them about it. I would have him call his aunt to apologize

My husband did this with two of his family members. I kept asking him about the correct spelling and he insisted he was right. Wouldn’t you know that the reply cards came back and the people had spelled their names differently. Honestly, I didn’t mention it to them, but made sure that their names were spelled correctly on the Thank You notes!

Call, make a laughing apology like mdarrah said and then leave it alone. There is nothing more awkward than constant apologies.
