Oops! I guess you will have a few spare ones in case you mess up. AND you can save one (or 10) to frame if you want. Worse things have happened!

As has been said, worst case scenario you have lots of spares ! So you’ll be able to do those adorable wedding invite Christmas ornaments, a shadow box, or frame it with your bouquet! Yes, I arouns way too much time on Pinterest.

I almost did the exact thing you did because I was so excited, but thankfully Fi walked by the computer during the placement process.

I think my biggest duh moment was when I was stressing about finding a getaway car, and then I remembered, “oh…right, our hotel is a block away….” Durt. 

In regards to your situation, can you contract the seller or printer ( not sure if you weren’t the diy route) and ask if you can change the quantity if you’re not too late? That way you don’t wind up paying double ?

@hyperJulie:  I just saw your last post. Glad you hadn’t competed the process yet! 

 

Please excuse my spelling errors and wrong words. My auto-correct hates me this morning.

I had this same moment! 🙂  I over-ordered anyway though, because my sister, Future Sister-In-Law, Future Mother-In-Law, and myself all heavily scrapbook, so I wanted to have a bunch to give them afterwards.

This is one of the things my mom has always warned me about because my parents ordered one per person! Fiance and I are organizing our guest list in Excel and putting a number next to the individual, couple, or family unit. Then we just added up the total guests automatically at the bottom, but the number of cells are the number of invitations we’ll have to send out. 🙂

@hyperJulie:  I did the exact same thing! And my fiance totally went along with it haha What a huge facepalm. My mom finally made me realize I was stressing about buying so many invitations when I only needed half the number I originally was budgeting for (luckily before I purchased)

I JUST had this realization the other day! Fortunately, we had only opened one box so I was able to return the other. *Phew*
