haha that’s not too bad!  My mom actually made the oops, she sent a STD to a couple that’s apart of my parents friday night hang out, but they aren’t really close, because she felt bad… ok……. now they’re on the freakin guest list and neither me or my parents really like them! WTF! lol

Nothing as of yet but I’m sure there will be something. It’s probably better that way. If I make a mistake now, maybe I won’t on my wedding day. Fingers crossed.

I made a minor boo boo too!

I mentioned that I was making my Save-The-Date Cards and sending them out – to someone who is not getting a STD. She is on the guestlist; however, we don’t know how the guest list will change when we hear from extended family overseas. So Fiance and I decided not to send Save-The-Date Cards to any local friends. I didn’t realize my boo boo until she asked if I had sent them out!… Oops!

I have to raise my hand here, and say I also had a similar mishap happen to us…

During the invitation stuffing process (I had 2 bridesmaids and my mother helping us), one of the “sample” invitations got stuffed into an envelope! I’m talking about the sample that comes on the front of the BRIDES invitation DIY kits sold at Michaels. The sample that had random names and a wedding location in TX. 


One of my FMIL’s friends received it! Needless to say I was horrified when we found out, and I rushed a “real” invitation into the mailbox. Note to self: double and triple check everything, especially if there’s others helping and possible distractions!

I made two mistakes in the invitation process.

One, I sent the wrong type of RSVP card to one person. We have two different RSVP cards, one for family and one for non-family.  The family set has a place to check off if they are attending the family rehearsal dinner and brunch along with the accept/decline while the non-family set only has the accept/decline part.  So I must have accidentally grabbed from the wrong stack at the end because I got one back from a friend and it was a family rsvp card!  I know that that was the only one that went out like that and I am just glad that it went to her because she wouldn’t judge me on my mistake.  Luckily the events were written as “famil bbq” and “family brunch” so I think she figured out that she wasn’t invited to those.

I also forgot to put return postage on a few rsvp postcards, but that is really not a big deal.

Yeah, I made a mistake with my seating chart, I had two couples that are friends with my parents (but the couples themselves don’t get along) sat at the same table!  Mom noticed about 10 minutes before the reception started!  Ooops!  How was I supposed to know?!?  Mom had one of the couples resat somewhere else.
