I would just mention it to her.  Be nice about it.  The fact is that the damage is done so there isnt much you can do now but she should know she made a mistake.

You tell her exactly what she did wrong and treat this situation just like you would in any other business transaction or while at work with a co-worker.  She has to know what was done wrong. If you paid her the incorrect (less) amount she would tell you what was wrong. Proof read proof read proof read

i would bring it up to her. be nice, but she needs to be aware she made a mistake so she’s more careful in the future. is she doing your invites too?

If you want to kind of take the wimpy way out, you could mention that Jonathan’s name was spelled wrong on the STD, and you just wanted to make sure it would be correct on the invite. That way you can let her know she screwed up, but have a reason for telling her.

@KatNYC2011: I understand weird things like this happen. Just like the other woman said tell her but put it nicely.

 

And I bet the majority of people that get the invite will just read over the error and not even realize. You know how the brain just assumes correct words and such when your are reading…

Okay, with more than one mistake, you should probably get kind of tough with her. I could see one name slipping past her, but that’s ridiculous. I think it’s time to start asking for some money to be refunded :/.

@KatNYC2011: i’m surprised the groomsman took a photo and emailed it to your FI…that’s brazen!  honestly, don’t stress…at least the actual invites themselves don’t have typos. i would definitely bring this up to her though.

I’m sorry this is happening to you. I understand how it must make you feel. Even though the mistakes were not yours, it’s easy to feel like it reflects badly on you. I agree that it’s unprofessional and the designer should have been better about proofreading.

I avoided this problem by addressing my Save the Dates myself with clear labels. It doesn’t look perfect, but at least I’m confident everything is correct because I triple checked. Definitely let your designer know that you’re unhappy.
