People will totally miss things like highway numbers! I know I’m a good proofreader and I can totally see that you might miss that…  You probably should have someone drive through the directions to be sure they can get there… even if you think everything is fine.

Similar story:

When making our save-the-dates, we ordered a postcard that said “July 24, 2009” instead of 2010. In our defense, it was very late, and it was still 2009, so we were in the habit of putting that year on everything. We made stickers to fix them.

I just did a last proof-reading session and found one of the addresses for a hotel was wrong and so was the phone number!

That happened to me!  We did our own invites and were tired and stressed and my FI put June instead of July!!!!  We had not sent them, luckily!  It is such a big mistake, but we didn’t even notice untill one day I woke up super early and happened to be leaning over randomly and caught a glimpse of the mistake!!!  Yikes!
