If you can afford it, I would send out cards with the correct address to all the guests.

@alicroo86:  Just send out a card with the correct information, and don’t be mortified – mistakes happen! Most wedding planning falls on future brides would are NOT professional event planners. 

If you find the cost of sending a correction notice to each guest is too expensive, you can get very cute business cards with the correct info printed and mailed out instead.

@alicroo86:  Definitely send a correction card. Vistaprint usually runs great sales and deals and most of the time the envelopes are free.

We all say things that we’d like to immediately shove back in our own mouths. I’m sure what your FI said is one of those things.

A friend of mine likes to remind me: Something will go wrong. You don’t know what it is, but the way that you handle it will be what people remember.

I think sending out a simple correction card would be fine. It’s arriving the same way the original invitation arrived, so hopefully people will receive it, keep it and remember it when it’s time to go to the wedding. You could also send out a mass e-mail for those who have e-mail, and then call the people who don’t. 

Don’t feel bad, it’s just one number off. And, really, that’s rich of fiancée to say you f’d up when he didn’t notice either. You had the good sense to have someone check the mock up of the invitation more than once, and he did a poor job — he f’d up too.

I had a venue change after I sent out the invitations (The park started major construction through our marriage site so we had to change venue unless we wanted to get married on a backhoe) so I just printed out (On regular pages of paper) the new venue address and that was that. Mailed them out to everyone and it was no big deal.
