Tell her you’re keeping the time as 12 as long as you’re serving lunch it’s definitely not too early.

I don’t think it’s necessarily tacky, just kind of confusing.  I wouldn’t be surprised if some people lost the little card and show up at 12pm.  I would either eat the costs (no fun) or just have it at the previously determined time of 12pm.  It’s not that much of a difference really.

I would most likely forget or lose the insert, then show up an hour early, then I would feel stupid about showing up an hour early.  At this point, I’d say reprint or stick with the orginal time.

is there a way you could cover up the 2 in 12 without it looking obvious?

Stick with a 12 pm shower. It will cause confusion otherwise. 

Just plan food accordingly, more of a ‘lunch’ then just snacks and appetizer-y things that you might have done otherwise.

It might seem a little odd, but what if you sent the invites ASAP and then sent a little card with the time change a few days later? People would be more likely to remember it that way.

I’d rather say good bye to the $136 than confuse people or DIY a time change on the invite myself.

I would personally just leave it at 12. A few people will arrive earlier than said time because they aren’t the type to be right on time, or be late.

i would leave it at 12 and tell your MIL that it’s already been printed. no way would i go through all of that effort just because she thinks 12 is early (which it isn’t!).

linalu4:  I agree with everyone just keep the same time and you know some people won’t show up on time

Keep it at 12, or reprint the invitation.  Sending a correction card in your invitation looks lazy, quite honestly.
