We have the same wedding date…haven’t sent ours out yet, we just got them in the mail 3 days ago…we’re workingn on them this weekend and are sending them out next week with a rsvp date by april 22nd!

I’m a perfectionist too, but don’t let it worry you too much…in the end, they get thrown away anyways.

I spelled my DH’s grandparents last name wrong. They sent the RSVP back with red lines through the one letter that was wrong and wrote a huge capitol “E” UNDERLINED several times and with exclamation points. It was awful.

It’s bound to happen, lady! Just have to take it with a grain of salt at this point. Ours are going out next week and I’m sure I’ll make some mistake!

@Mrs Hedgehog: haha. I can see myself doing this too when we send out our invitations.

@Ellabellaxo: On our Save the Dates I only put my name on the return address. After we had them all done Fiance asked about his name too. Oops.

That’s not too bad! I spelled FI’s middle name wrong and only caught it halfway through printing them. We’re just sending the incorrect half to my family since they won’t know it’s wrong and we’re sending the correct half to his family :).

Nobody’s perfect. While it kind of sucks that she posted a picture of it on Facebook, it’s best to just laugh it off. I mean, it’s not like you can undo it, and it’ a harmless mistake. If that’s the worst thing to go wrong, then you are in good shape! 🙂

I had a freakout with my save the dates. I spelled “Illinois” wrong on more than half the envelopes and on the calendar, I put a  “1” instead of “11”.

I totaly cried about it at first, but it was a few months ago so I’m over it now. Maybe the same thing will happen with your invtes? You just need time :).

Also, I think I’m going to ask people not to tell me if they see mistakes on our invites. Ignorance is bliss, right?

@firsttimemom: Oh! That’s not very nice of them! Geez they could at least have called or just waited to tell you in person.

OP: I also felt quite nervous about ours–what if the traditional addressing offends someone (Mr & Mrs John Smith)? I’m SURE I got someone’s name wrong too…eerp! But, in the end, at least they’re out. Phew!

who posts something like that on facebook? really??? Don’t sweat it. It happens. There’s a typo in my invitations but I’m still sending them out and hoping no one notices. Ha!

We ran out of envelopes.  I hand-addressed them, and between my mistakes, last-minute additions, and incorrect addresses that were told to me AFTER I had addressed them, we literally had exactly enough.  So then when I went through one last time and found a mistake, I had no choice but to send it.  There wasn’t a way to correct it that didn’t look way worse, we were already late, and I was just exhausted.  The guest’s name was Kathlene and I had written Kathleen.  They RSVPed yes, so obviously they weren’t too angry.  I felt awful, but my exhaustion won out, so much for perfectionism.
