i think you’re better off redoing them. cutting a tiny piece of paper and sticking it on will look awful.

@Alexmarg20:  i wouldn’t try to cover up just the time.  it may make it look worse. 

 

you may be able to make it look unique if you covered up the whole section of date and time in a different colour paper and font.  it would look almost intentional then. like a colour block.

 

do you have a pic of your invites?

I would just redo them, honestly. If you cover the date up, you run the risk of the covering part falling off and gettting lost, and I can’t think of a single way to correct it with a pen that won’t look super obvious and unprofessional.

What about adding a small card in a similar color that says

“Correction: Our ceremony will begin at 5:30, not 4:00 like originally planned”

I like the color block idea. Another possibility would be if you can run them through a printer,  you can create a template that matches the spacing and create a delete/strike-out mark over the incorrect time and add the correct time next to it. It would be clear that there is a correction but that shouldn’t be a big deal as long as it’s neat.  One difficulty may be the difficulty of lining everything up just right.  You may have to run though a few invitations to get it right, or maybe use some other paper that you can use as a stand-in as you make adjustments to get it perfect.

@Alexmarg20:  hopefully there is enough ‘white space’ on your invites to allow such an addition as a colour block without looking like a fix up job.

let me know when you post your invite.  i will be out this afternoon but back later tonight.  funny, i am actually going to a friend’s place to help her with her invites and wedding decor.

this is what i mean by a colour block.  shown on the save the date.

@mypinkshoes:  this is an excellent idea!! I would attempt it before ordering new ones- and if it didn’t work out, then reorder.

 

If there’s enough space- meaning your font isn’t too small, it just might work!
