@pinkshoes:  Mass email should be fine.  These things happen and no one will fault you on it.  Do you have a wedding website?  Maybe an announcement on there as well.

Can you make a joke when you announce it about it being chicken of the sea? It may be a funny way to handle the typo.

And yes, wedding website, email, word of mouth should do.

I think it would be easier to change the entree. :}

Oh my. That stinks.  I would open them back up and get new ones. It would bother me too much. I know that’s not what  you want to hear, but I’m packed full of honesty.

@mwitter80: Agreed. I’d do that too. It would bug me WAY too much.

@julies1949: I agree.  I would probably just change the entree to chicken and hope it isn’t dry.  Maybe it was just dry the one day you tasted it?  A bride can hope 🙂

Oh man, that blows big time. I’d probably change the entree before anyone noticed I made a mistake. Definitely talk to your caterer about your concerns though. Maybe they can slather those suckers in sauce to keep them juicy.

Steam helps. I’m just not sure if it would curl the paper. Usually, if you boil a big pot of water on the stove and hold the envelope in the steam for a few seconds, it will be easy to open.

Sorry this happened to you! I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the envelopes open up easily for you. No matter what, I’m sure your guests will be understanding. But I would definitely either reprint the cards or change the meal since people may have food allergies. Since it’s hopefully cheaper than $400 to re-do the cards and you prefer the fish, I would just go ahead and reprint like you’re doing.

Maybe you can just contact people who respond chicken.. however A LOT of people like chicken, so that may be a bad idea. Eh, mass e-mail will be best I’m sure. Send them out, then a few days later do a FYI e-mail with your mistake. No problems 🙂

@pinkshoes: What about designing new cards instead of going to buy whole new kits? and after steaming or freezing the envelopes just use a good ol glue stick to re-seal 🙂

This is a tough one. How much do the new kits cost
