To be honest I’m not sure if I would figure that out b/c you expect .com to be at the end of the website and not sure if I’d realize I had typed it twice.  But I would think after typing it a few times I might get it…maybe? 

That really sucks, I just ordered my save the dates and you had me worried so I just double checked my proof and the address is on there correctly, thank goodness!

Oh geeze how frustrating! so sorry 🙁

Truly I agree with the PP, I would’ve put the .com in out of habit anyway! You could always send an email out, or ask your FMIL to send one to clear up any confusion?

I’d like to thank you for posting this though because it reminds me to double check mine tomorrow!

GoDaddy.com 

my invites had a slight typo in website address on them so I registered with Godaddy and had a service rep build a ‘jump site’ for like $30 bucks. Basically what happened was people could type in the wrong address on the card and that site would ‘jump’ them to the correct site.

good luck!

@rosegoldwedding: Is there any way that you can black out / white out / color the .com? 

I think plenty of people will be confused and frustrated and won’t realize that if they leave the .com, it will work

Sorry for your situation! Can you send a note with the correct address? Or call?

You can also email your guests an e-save the date w/link to the correct site?

Yeah – It was pretty amazing indeed. Much less sloppy amd time consuming as calling people or sending notes/emails explaining the situation would have been!

I would figure that out, but clearly several people who rather call your FMIL than your FI did not.  At least you know these fam and friends on his side knew he was to call her. At the end of the day a STD is just a STD with limited info. When people get the actual invite several weeks before the wedding they will have all the necessary info needed to attend your wedding.

I would just email everyone the correct website in the meantime. These are just the STD’s right? Just correct it for the invites. 

If that GoDaddy thing really works that’s an awesome suggestion.

Oh so frustrated and sooo sorry this happened!  I think some guests will figure it out and others won’t.  If you have everyone’s email, I would let them know about the correction that way:)  Gonna go quadruple check my STDs now!
