    @whitums:  Yes, I would freak out that my wedding info is up there when the wedding hasn’t happened yet!  I don’t know if that’s normal, but I think you are definitely not crazy for wanting your info blurred out until the date has passed!

    @tangentialbee:  Haha! This made me laugh

    OP, no you’re not nuts at all! I would be PISSED! Keep on her about taking it down, or at least blurring your info out. Make sure to write a review for her with this info! Maybe you can save some future bride from this extreme privacy violation! I’m sorry this happened to you 🙁

    Wow…that’s…weird. And creepy. She could have just printed a new set with fake info ffs. I would contact her ASAP and ask her to either blur out your personal info or change it to fake info. If she doesn’t, report it to Etsy.

    Hmm, that’s a tough one because you’re getting a good deal since she can resell it, and she obviously needs a sample to show people…  An invitation suite that’s half blurred-out wouldn’t be a good advertisement for her.

    She should probably print up a sample with a fake set of names and information, right?  I’d ask her to do that.

    Your information should ABSOLUTELY be blurred out.  It’s a security issue and I’d be freaked out too.

    I think she should have at least asked/notified you first. I wouldn’t be happy having my personal info out there like that before the fact.  After the fact it happens – think about photographer blogs that put up photos of wedding invites.  Sometimes, it’s hard to avoid.

    Creepy! The person who made our invites did this and I gave her the go ahead – BUT she changed the info on it, just not the design. Seriously, how hard is it for them to go back and change the names and address on the invite? It’s not. It would seem like common sense because that’s a huge privacy issue.

    @tangentialbee:  LMAO!! Seriously made me LOL 🙂


    @whitums:  You are not crazy. The seller should definitely have blurred the date, or at least made a ‘dummy’ invoice using the design with fake information on it for publishing online, ESPECIALLY before your weddign has even occurred. Bad form, for sure!
