OK bees, need your help…
My previous post mentioned how bad my invitations were screwed up.
The actual invitation and directions are being re-done.
But I have been thinking if I should get them to re-print the envelopes and accommodations card as well.
The addresses were printed on the envelopes as:
Mr. John Smith and Mrs. Jane Smith (on line 1)
123 Main Street (on line 2)
City, Province, (on line 3 – yes there is a comma after province)
Canada A1B C3D (on line 4)
To me it looks off when they printed the country before postal. I would prefer either no country or postal, country.
Does it really matter to everyone or am I over thinking?
On the accommodations care it states a bock of rooms have been reserved at hotel x and has address, phone number, and reservations details. It also says it is location at main intersection of x and x, across the street from John Banquet Hall – except our hall is called John Grand Banquet Hall. Will guests figure it out that the hotel is located across from the hall or should I have them reprint as well?
What would you do bees? thanks for your opinions.
(for some readon it only allows to vote for one choice only so I only added the accommodaion card to the poll)

I think that you’re way overthinking this. No one will look at the envelope in that much detail, or judge you for it.

I’d concentrate on actual errors. So yes, make them reprint the accommodation card with the correct name of your venue but don’t worry about the envelopes.

I don’t know. There are some people who won’t notice and then there are people like us, lol, who will. If it’s possible to have them reprint the envelopes, you should go for it.
Edit: Oops, excuse me, I meant to say the envelopes and the card. Or if that’s too much, just do the card. But seriously, these people sound so unprofessional…I really hope they would fix these mistakes for free.

I recommend you get them reprinted. Not because people won’t be able to figure it out, because they will, but because it is obviously bothering you so much. You might as well get it all corrected instead of just some if it is their mistake.

Waaaay overthinking, especially with the envelope address (I put postal code after country anyway). The guests will figure out the Halls, they’re not stupid. Don’t waste any more time/money on this, get planning something else! 😀

Forget the envelopes. I’ve been to a lot of weddings, and I 100% cannot describe any of the envelopes any of my invitations came in – I didn’t even stop to look carefully before trashing it.
