    Leave it! The Mr. and Mrs. looks like a logo and is not replated to the text.

    Stephanie and Michael sounds better than Michael and Stephanie anyways!

    def leave it. i thought it was something else. no one will notice at all and if thye do they are just looking for things, because this is not even a mistake. honestly they look really cute and i do think the girl is supposed to go first as she is the host. (her family)

    Before I saw the picture I thought you might need to change them – but they really look beautiful and NO ONE will notice!  As PPs said, the Mr. & Mrs. looks more like a monogram than going along with your names.  Leave them as is & don’t worry!

    We had them, and not a single soul told me anything about them.  My husband said someone did mention them to him, but chances are, people won’t even notice they are there. 

    However, it’d kill me if they weren’t perfect, so I’d order new ones.  Plus you are going to want to keep a few for yourself and you want them to be the way you want them to be.

    I’d leave it…it’s not like a time, date or name spelling error…I bet you no one but you will notice so I’d save the $70 and put it into something else.

    People are going to wipe their dirty hands on them. No one is going to notice if the printing is “wrong” which I wouldn’t think it is anyway. Just has a mr and mrs graphic then your names.

    Leave it, I doubt anyone will notice, and if they do, they most likely won’t care too much.

    Until I saw the photo I was going to say order new ones, I was imagining something like this:


    Mr.          Mrs.

    Susan      Peter


    But the Mr and Mrs are so stylized and swirly I think most people won’t look at the napkins closely enough to see that’s what the design even says, so I wouldn’t bother ordering new ones, I’d just use them and not give it another thought.

    Leave it! The Mr. & Mrs. thing is a graphic, and not necessarily an indication of the order of the names below. It’s typical anyway for the bride’s name to be listed first on items like this.

    @mckeestephanie:  Definitely keep them!  I also did mine that way, because everywhere I looked the bride’s name is always listed first.  Nobody will ever notice.
