It’s unfortunate that you left off the city and state but people should be able to Google the name and street address and find out the other information.

As far as the map thing, I really don’t think it’s neccessary.

Fortunately, you have plenty of time to print new invitations if your wedding isn’t until March 2015.

rrweddingday15:   I don’t think you need to put PTO – but if you want to stick a map on the back, maybe put the full address along the bottom or top of the map image? That “fixes” the address issue – and I think people will see the map without “PTO.” (I wouldn’t even know what that meant if I saw it on an invite.)  

Most people are just going to use their phones or GPS anyway… and they can google the location if they don’t see the map.

I agree with @merpitymerp.  I would have them reprinted.  It’s an unfortunate mistake and will be a hit to your budget but you have the time to correct it 🙂

<br />Good luck!

I would have them reprinted. Or taken to a print place and have a line added at the very least. I’m sorry, but it looks unprofessional without it.

I don’t think you need to add PTO on the back…maybe put them with the map face up when putting them in the invitations that way people will automatically turn them over to see if there is any explanation? Also, as far as the city and state being left off the invite…Have you added a directions card? If the city and state is listed on the Directions card (if you already have one), I think it will be fine. If I received an invitation without a city and state, but an address, I would simply plug the address into Google. Simple fix. I think we can assume that it would simply be the older crowd who might be more confused? I think add a directions card (if one is not already printed). I don’t think you need to reprint them, but that’s just my opinion. I can see where it might cause more of a headache to NOT reprint them, though. This is a tough decision.

I literally just typed in “Lauriston House 146 Marsden Rd” and it was the first thing to pop up on Google (in fact, the first whole page has links to the venue). I wouldn’t waste the money reprinting them.

Hiw many older people are invited? That would make even my mom super uncomfortable because her first thought would not be dr. Google.

You should probably have them reprinted.

They look beautiful!  I don’t think you need to reprint.  Save your money.  You can always put the city and state on the map, if you wish.
