    Can you email all of your guests notifying them of the typo & give them the correct number?

    I know it sounds mortifying to you, but honestly, if I received an invitation with a typo & then a follow-up email – I wouldn’t care less.  Actually, I’d pride the bride for being on top of things and remedying the situation!

    It seems a lot worse than it actually is – trust me!  At least it wasn’t the wrong DATE or something important like that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Relax, it will all be fine!!

    It’s okay! It happens to the best of us! I know when I get invites, one of the first things I do is check out the couple’s wedding website. Maybe on your wedding website, you could post an update that the hotel phone number is incorrect and actual number is…

    haha, it’s actually really embarrassing to write this — but I’m actually OK with it!! my typo was REALLY bad… especially considering that my job is to be an editor… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyway, I had slaved over my invitations for a while… perfecting the design, putting them together.. etc. I double and triple checked EVERYTHING — and had others look too… our wedding date was jan. 2, 2009. 

    well, since it was still 2008… yup, you guessed it — i printed Jan. 2, 2008!!!!! NO ONE noticed before we printed them and it wasn’t until a guest told us that we realized what we had done! hahaha… at that point, I didn’t care — it did bother me — but there was nothing I could do. I just reprinted a few with 2009 for keepsake purposes. and surprisingly, not a lot of guests realized the mistake.

    The hotel phone number error is very minor – I wouldn’t do anything about it unless you want to crrect it on your website.  If I wanted to make a hotel reservation and the number was incorrect, I would just look it up on the Internet – no big deal.

    Please don’t stress about it– won’t most people make their reservations online, anyway?  When you said it was a doozy, I thought you spelled your name wrong, or forgot to put in the date, or something!  Yours is just a tiny little mistake!

    Not wedding related, but my ex-coworker once put out an ad that promoted our weekly special on "crap soup" instead of "crab soup"– now THAT was a doozy!  Smile…

    @jhphi  LMBO!!!

    Miss PG: Don’t worry about it!  If I was a guest I would assume that the hotel changed their number and look it up.  Not a big deal at all!

    Haha, the hotel phone number was wrong on my invitations too. But it was wrong because the person at the hotel gave us the wrong contact number to begin with. I just posted a note about it on the wedding website and contacted the owner of the erroneous number to let them know they might be receiving calls. There were no ill repercussions. Everyone had a place to sleep.

    I think calling the guy/gal who will be getting all your calls in error to apologize asap would be a great idea- that way they’re not snarky w/ the calls… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Um, THANK YOU for this post!

    I just realized that I sent my letterpress plate to the plate-making shop without a YEAR on it!

    Sheesh! So, I guess I’ll rush my butt back into illustrator and correct it.
