I wish I had a picture here but I don’t…just got an invite in the mail yesterday. I opened the envelope and had a weird sense of deja vu – it’s IDENTICAL to an invite I received 4 months ago for another wedding. I know I’ll be the only invitee in commmon between the 2 weddings but I would personally be mortified to know that my invite wasn’t original. It would be different if it was a classic invitation style, clean and white or something. But this is an invite ordered online, that’s supposed to look very individual and unique…

i would be mortified if someone completely copied everything about my wedding, yes.
selected the same packaged invites as me? mortified is a little over the top. lol

Eh, a lot of people end up with the same invitations. Or at least ones that look very similar. However, I’m pretty sure that two brides who know each other wouldn’t get the same invitations. Since those 2 couples obviously don’t know each other, I don’t see the big deal.

I might be a little bothered if myself and someone in the same circle sent out the same invites really close together, but not really mortified. I would get over it pretty quickly; the invite style isn’t a huge deal plus you said that you’re the only person in common between the two wedding invite lists. If you were to order them online, it would be pretty unreasonable to expect that you would be the only one to order those specific invites.

I would definitely not be mortified. I don’t think I would even be that bothered. Most invites kind of look the same to me anyways.

Mortified is a bit strong. I probably wouldn’t even be bothered if someone had the same invitations as me – it’s just a piece of paper. I likely wouldn’t even notice if I got 2 of the same invite, unless I hung them up on the fridge next to each other. Most invitations I get are relatively similar in style anyways.

Mortified is a pretty strong reaction. To be honest I wouldn’t even care….

I would be mortified if I invited someone to my wedding and they started judging straight away upon receipt of the invitation!!!

Mine were printed from one of those Wilton DIY kits – very simple, very basic. So, I’d imagine everyone on my invite list ended up with similar invitations.
Most people will say, “Oh hey, she has the same invitations as (blank).” Before they hang it on their fridge. Before they throw it away.

@MrsBeck: I guess I have that reaction because I make all my cards, all of them – I haven’t purchased a card in 8+ years so if i sent out something that someone had seen before it would definitely be extremely embarassing for me.

@MsGinkgo: Bah, I don’t care if 30 of our guests have seen our Vistaprint invites before lol, they’re all going to end up in the same place eventually anyways.. In the garbage lol
But if your happy with your invites, thats all that matters 🙂 At least yours will stand out!

@MsGinkgo: Let me guess. Is it the tree with the couples’ initials carved onto the trunk? I’ve seen multiples of those in the past 2 years.

@MsGinkgo: I made all my wedding stationary and make my own birthday, thank you, and Christmas cards but if I did choose to buy a card and someone had seen it before I wouldn’t be embarrassed. Would you be embarrassed because you think it shows you don’t care because it’s not unique? I don’t even think about it when I receive doubles (and we got tons of wedding card doubles).

@MsGinkgo: I can’t fathom how something as miniscule as a greeting card can cause embarassment. The receiver probably throws it in the garbage mere minutes after receiving it and would likely never think “Eww, I’ve gotten this one before. How awful”.. Seems petty….

Invites always look the same to me. I usually never remember them and even the “unique” ones end up just looking like recycled other unique ideas.
