    I would reorder, but that is just me. I am Type A and have to have everything perfect. If I was a guest, I would notice the typo, but I would not think less of you for it.

    I would notice that, but then I’m a writer and English major. Can’t you send a message to the vendor explaining the error?

    I personally would not give it a second thought. And I doubt others would either. The invitations are already sealed, stamped & ready to go…no need to worry yourself about this.

    For me, if it’s not on the main invite, I wouldn’t care and probably wouldn’t even notice!

    Most people won’t even notice. There are a couple of chain emails that go around challenging you to find the typo, and it is one just like you have: The same word (or words) printed on two lines – and it’s hard! Our brains tend to correct such mistakes. Is it really worth the cost and pain? At least it isn’t a name, date or time. 


    In a couple of months you’ll probably laugh about it. 🙂

    I’m totally type-A when it comes to typos – and, given your wedding date, would definitely NOT redo.  IMO, it’s more important to get them out at this point than to redo them.  And, it’s really not that huge of a mistake (meaning, the point you are trying to communicate is not lost)

    I am an english major and a writer as well, I think you will be fine. If the invitations are expensive I wouldn’t worry about it. The majority of people won’t notice, and its not on the main invite. I figure, every wedding has to have at least one thing go a tiny bit off from the plan, and this would get yours out of the way now in an extremely minor way! 

    However, if you can afford it easily, I might consider it, more for your peace of mind than anything else.

    i doubt many people will notice and if they do i don’t think they will care, i think it would be a waste of time & money to reorder them…and since it isn’t on the main invite i don’t think it matters, i would contact the vendor and ask for some compensation however…

    I had to re-read your post to see what the problem was, so I don’t think most people would notice.

    Haha, I’m just like SaraRocks – I had to read your post TWICE to find the typo. I say you’re fine. Seriously, who is going to care about your accommodations card (or think less of you because of it)? I wouldn’t worry, but I guess that’s just me.

    If it were me, I would reorder. Typos are a huge thing for me, to the point where I would have to consider all the other time, effort, and money spent on the invitations something of a waste, because the error is the only impression I’d come away with. It does sound like a huge pain though so I would understand if you chose to just let it go.

    Definitely don’t re-do them!!  The mistake is minor – I think misspelled words are more obvious than a repeated word.  Like the poster above, I too had to read it a second time before I picked up on the error – and I’m a stickler for spelling and grammar errors!

    Given the date of your wedding, I would not give the typo a second thought and would get those invites in the mail tomorrow morning as originally planned.  I guarantee, 80% of your guests (if not more) are not even going to notice.

    I wouldn’t worry about it.. seriously, I had to reread your post to even figure out what your typo issue was.
