@abbylyn:  I know it sucks, but everyone will know that you didn’t do it!

Yikes… sorry I don’t have any good advice. As a stickler for grammar, that would drive me nuts!

I would create my own shower invites with a note to disregard the previous invitation

Ask the other bridesmaid to send out a corrected invite?

i wasn’t going to comment after reading the OP and i got off line and started doing laundry.  the more i thought about it the more it really chapped my ass for you OP.  i would be livid!  who sends out invites without double and triple checking the spelling, grammar and that the info is correct?  you don’t think she did it on purpose, do you?

i would talk to FSIL about it and voice your concerns.  this shower is for you and it represents you!  those invitations went out to your family and friends.  i would be mortified. i mean, she misspelled your name FFS.

talk to her about it and firmly let her know you will be sending out new invites.  i would want it made extremely clear that those original invites were not your doing to all who received them.

just my two cents.

I was going to use the word “mortified” as well. What a sucky situation. I’m sorry.

That would drive me nuts! How did she spell your name wrong? I would have your other bridesmaids send out a reprint or at least spread the word that you want to open your presents that’s so weird to even write that

Recall the invitations and send out your own.  I am so sorry this has happened to you.  

 

And what’s the bit about not wrapping the gifts?  Goodness, watching the bride open the gifts is one of the main shower highlights!

Oh man! How awkward! I’m sorry! I think you have to talk to her about it. How does she spell your name wrong 2 outta the 3 times? I mean come on! 

As PP mentioned your friends and family will know it’s not you who did them. I’m not sure I’d go to the trouble of sending newe invites. Maybe word of mouth you could let guests know to wrap the gifts?
