Would it be possible to have it reprinted?

did you sign off on a proof?  what did it say march or may?

if it’s your fault, get them reprinted; if it’s the printer’s fault, have them reprint them at no charge.

beeayeyeelelwhy:  As much as you probably don’t want to hear this, I would have them re-printed and reassemble everything.  I know it will be an expense and require a lot of extra effort, but I think you’ll be happier that you chose to do that.

beeayeyeelelwhy:  I think you (and/or fiance and/or other helpers) should cross it out and neatly rewrite by hand, on every one. (Or you could use white out but I think that’s overkill). The problem with an insert is it could get separated from the card. If you’re sure the note will stay stuck to the RSVP card, you’re probably ok, but I still prefer crossing out the old date so there’s no confusion.

You’ve got to take a step back and realise they are only RSVP cards. No one will think less of you because you had to correct something. Besides no one keeps the RSVP cards – they get sent back to you.

People tend to ignore the response date anyway…I was still asking people to respond a WEEK before the wedding. So I think you’re fine, lol. If you feel you have to attach a note, go ahead, but I guarantee you’ll be chasing people for a response after it

You can rewrite the date and cross the wrong date. If you reprint all cards, it will be very costly.

beeayeyeelelwhy:  If the time and cost to reprint and then reassemble everything is going to be too much, I think a note would be fine. If it was the date of the actual wedding, I’d say reprint. But it’s just the RSVP return date that I can promise you people don’t pay much attention to since ours was March 15 and we still don’t have most RSVPs back 🙂

I would reprint them.  You have ample time to get them reprinted and mailed out, so why send them out with the wrong date, add confusion to an already stressful process, and have to create some sort of note to go along with it pointing out that you made a mistake (and opted not to fix it).
