So, funny story.
I ordered my Save-The-Date Cards today. I designed them myself in Photoshop, and Fiance approved the design. I put the order through on Vistaprint and then headed off to work. While talking with one of the Front Line Managers in my department, I mentioned that I finally got my Save the Dates done and ordered them earlier that day. I was describing the design to her and something occurred to me. When she left, I logged into Vistaprint and looked at my order. My Save-The-Date Cards had a cute design, our names, something about saving the date and that we were getting married, the location and…….
No actual date on the image. Lot of good Save the Dates are when you don’t tell people what date they need to be saving. Ha!
I promptly cancelled my order and will have to go home and edit the PSD and re-submit my order. I’m just glad I realized it before they got printed and shipped out to me.
So, anyone else have any ‘Doh!’ moments (or funny stories in general) during their planning that they’d like to share?

@Kisetsu23: This isn’t quite the same, but right after we sent our original Save-The-Date Cards, the military changed our arrangements and we had to move the date! Our faces in the second STD look like “DOH!”

On our invitations, I put “The favor of a reply is requested by September 31, 2013”. There is no September 31.

@aliavenue: That’s a super cute picture and poem! I laughed.

Just had one of those moments this weekend! We were packaging the envelopes for our invites. I thought I had everything organized and laid out on the table. We didn’t notice that there were two different sizes of envelopes at the time but when we were finished we had all these left over envelopes. I didn’t know what they were for but then we took a closer look at them and noticed that some were smaller than others. We didn’t even think about inner and outer envelopes!! We ended up putting 1/2 our invites in inner and 1/2 in outer envelopes with stamps and labels already on them!
Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things but it was bugging me so much that I just peeled off all the stamps of the smaller invites so that I can repackage the invites properly! Ugh! So annoying. A silly oversight!
