So, I just realized this morning that I’ve put a minor typo on everything related to the wedding–putting “boulevard” instead of “drive” and quite possibly mislabling the town of our venue on everything printed, including the sent out invitations. I’m just going to let it slide because I can’t do anything about it now. Though I’m still a bit embarassed to tell my fiance.
As we get closer all us October brides…is anyone else making silly mistakes too? I’d imagine/hope I’m not the only one. We can all practice letting go together.
Oh and on another more exciting note, we got our first RSVP yesterday! Yay!

You are handling that like a real champ, I think I might have been freaking. Yeah, we had a crapload go wrong with silly mistakes.

@tksjewelry: Oh, thanks. 🙂 Yeah…I’ve been working really hard in the past year or so to try and not stress things I can’t control. Can’t say it always works but I definitely try. Denial also helps. 🙂

If it still has a street number and the name of the street, people should be able to google it! And if you have a website, put it on there.
I ordered my I Spy cards but to realize that I spelled “reverse” as “reserve”. Oh, well, it’s I Spy the typo I guess.

I guess I didn’t seal one of my invitations well enough, because I just got an open response invitation in my mailbox- the day after I sent out the invites! I think it must have come open at some point in the Post Office mail sorting process, and so the invite and response card were thrown away, the response envelope mailed to us, and an empty invitation mailed to some lucky invitee…. yikes.
We’re just hoping that whoever it is recognizes our return address and lets us know their insides were missing. :

my sister just told me that when she sent out the shower invitations yesterday morning, she had the date right, but the day of the week wrong. oops.
She said, “please don’t kill me.” I told her worse things have happened. 🙂
(at least *I’m* not the one who is going to get to deal with 40 phone calls wondering what day it actually is!)

I’m not an October bride, but I managed to seal almost half of my invitations before realizing I’d forgotten to put stamps on the RSVP envelopes. I considered letting it be, but as most of the sealed ones were addressed to my family, who are sticklers for etiquette, I ended up prying them open to add in the postage. Then I sealed them shut again with a glue stick. Most of them were surprisingly easy to open cleanly, but about 20 ripped during this process, so the night before I intended to chuck them in the mail, I was out buying 20 square brown envelopes to replace the ripped ones.
I should have just let everyone think I was a cheapskate, lol.

Yah, I realized I mixed up my fonts on my address labels. I wanted to address labels and the return labels to match, but for some reason I got confused and matched the address label to the RSVP postcard label…LOL, I don’t know. That’s pretty minor, but I freaked out anyway.
I also have found I’m getting MORE scatterbrained the closer I get to October 14th (my date)!

@MrsKaySea: Yes…I like that whole incorporating the error into the theme. Not a mistake. Just part of the fun.
@Psychgirl: Ack. That’s lame. Well, I think you can just blame it on the post office. 🙂
@red_rose: That sucks, probably more for your sister than you. And it is nice not having to be the one to fix the error.
@linguo42: I did that twice actually during the invitation process. So very annoying. I’m glad that the glue stick was able to rescue a bit.
@lambobble: I think sometimes it’s the smallest details that have the most meaning to you. Luckily I think often no one but you really notices or feels the importance of it. And I definitely understand the disappearing brain syndrome. I’m feeling that a bit myself.

I’m sort of hoping that if more mistakes happen *before* the day of the wedding, then maybe “bad luck” or whatever will run out, and the wedding day will go perfectly! 🙂

I think its great your not stressing over this hardcore. There really isnt anything you can do now, your right, so just take it in stride and move on to the next. Good for you!!!

I just woke up in the middle of the night last night and realized I forgot to put on the invitations that the reception was immediately following. I put the directions to the reception site in the invitation, so hopefully they’ll know there will be a reception. Haha, you just gotta let this stuff roll off your back. Not everything is going to be perfect, and it could be worse 🙂

@swanks4tw: Can you mention it somewhere on the program so people definitely know? Like “reception immediately following” with the address and a map?
