@bryenswife:  what’s the wording on the current batch?  meaning – do you have the address and not the church name?

Is the address for the church on it?

Can you just add a little direction card into the invite with the name of the venue?

I don’t know… I’d have to think about what I’d do… it would depend on my budget and how much time I had.

Another option might be to print a separate card with the name of the church and reception.  You could maybe put directions on it if you feel like it will look to obvious.. that way people might think you left off the invite on purpose? I dunno hehehe

I would add a little card inside that says where the wedding/reception are located.  I wouldn’t reprint them all. 

It’s not that big of a deal!  We all make little mistakes!  Don’t beat yourself up over it.  This is a stressful time, and stuff happens.

I think a cute little insert would be great.  You can just print a bunch on one sheet, and then cut them like business cards.

@EleanorRigby: I love your idea of making it look like it’s on purpose. Just buy some cardstock that matches your current invites, you could probably print 6 or 8 to a page. It would be perfect.

Otherwise check out Michael’s. You can get 30 invites for $40 but they’re on sale right now for $25.99 no coupon needed so less than $1 an invite for nice invites. I got the damask pocketfolds and love them! I’m starting to work on them now.

First off, take some deeeeep breaths. Second, it’s fixable. I agree with adding an insert with directions to the chruch. People will find the insert and by the time they realize the address/name isn’t on the invitations they’ll already have directions so it won’t panic them nearly as much as it is you right now.

Do you have the template of your invite?  Can you just run your invite through the printer again deleting everything that was printed and print only the missing info?

@bryenswife: as PP have said here. I would add a little print out with a map of where the church is. Then you can put the name and address on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

SHow us the current invites you have.. Also if you do decide to reprint, just print the wording on regular plain paper and take a break from it for a while and then come back and read it out loud, or let someone else read it. Its hard to find typos and errors in your own work

We forgot the year too but we figure people will know it’s this year… because who sends out invites a year early? Also if you are worried about not having the name of the church just make a little reception card. (We have the name of the venue on ours but didnt have room to put the reception was there as well so we are making up little reception cards and sticking them in with the invites).

We forgot the year as well.  Don’t worry!! I think it’s a given, and I agree add a direction card for the church info.

Aw, I sympathize. I sealed all but 5 of my outer envelopes before realizing I hadn’t put postage on the RSVP envelopes inside. So the night before I had intended to send our invitations out, I was out hunting for brown square envelopes, and barely found enough to replace the ones that tore when I snuck them open to stamp the RSVPs.

In your situation, I would probably redo them or add in a map, as others have suggested, to cut down on guest confusion. Sorry you’re in this position, but try not to be too hard on yourself about it. Wedding planning is stressful enough without us attacking ourselves for mistakes anyone could make ๐Ÿ™‚ Once you send them, I promise you’ll be able to laugh about the whole thing. I know I did.
