I neglected to put return lables on the STD postcards. I thought–they’re postcards…who needs a return lable. Welp, now we’re not sure who received them and if any got lost in the mail…oh well.

I can’t say this is as big since I’m not that far in the process, but in creating a portion of our invites, I ordered WAY too many, thinking of the number of people rather than the number of households.  I think I could have saved us about $50!!  I also could’ve fit way more information and I made a portion of the text the wrong color (not a big deal though) … I was just like way too impatient ordering the stuff -_-**

My oops was a definite teary, ugly crying bride kind of moment.  My uncle in the Phillipines offered to print our invites for us.  I designed the whole suite – ceremony card, reception card, RSVP and map.  He sent them back to us and they were on cream not white paper but with spotty ink.  I cried over them because I felt sooooo bad that I didn’t want to use them because he had done them for us as a gift!  I showed them to our event manager and she said “Our address is wrong.”  Turns out I had put in the number 400 as a space saver until I got the actual address and after a million hours proofing it and sending it to other people they didn’t catch it either.  The happy ending is a friend of ours got them printed for free on white paper with correct addresses. :)  I never did tell my mom that we didn’t use her brother’s invites.  Eek.

The other oops was I got these cute light wands for the kids and attached tags with their names on them.  But I forgot to write their table name on the back.  Oops.

My opps moment!

Final payment to the wedding venue, I forgot to add the $1000 dollar ceremony fee! So we were $1000 dollars short when making our final payment!

I live an hour and half away from my venue, my soon to be MIL went and made the rest of the final payment for us since she lives 15 minutes away from teh venue, and we mailed her a check back for the amount needed.

 

Oppppppsssss

So far:

I ordered way too many invitations due to an excel mishap.

I forgot I needed a bouquet for my bridal portraits, and had to have one very hastily made.

my sister got married last year. My Mom forgot to attach the sash to the back of her dress. no one noticed until after the wedding was over! OOPS!

In my Mom’s defense, my sister’s dress had BEAUTIFUL beading and lace. The sash was plain satin and covered so much of it, it was a shame to begin with LOL
