Don’t send them with typos. I recently got an invitation with a typo and I couldn’t see anything but that.

Sorry, but you’re going to have to reprint all of them. You can’t send our invitations with things misspelled.

I wouldnt send them out with errors. I think it sets the tone of the wedding.  Also, I always notice those things because I have cerain levels for wedding invitations (which includes having spelling correct).

Yup, sorry I agree with the majority. I received a wedding invite once with not one, two but three spelling errors…it looked really, really bad. You have to reprint them. 🙁

I would have them reprinted.  A lot of people will notice.

I received an invitation recently, and all I could think about were the 3 spelling errors on the invitations no matter how nice they looked.

Please please please don’t send out invites with spelling errors. Before you order again have friends or family read it over.

Sorry, but I am going to have to agree with the majority – do not send them out. Try and find some way to print corrected invtes and get someone to proof read.  Our own eyes often seem to correct mistakes because we know what it should be so a second set of eyes is always helpful!

 

I went to a wedding where the programs had typos and bad grammer, it was confusing and embarassing. The single sister Maid/Matron of Honor was listed as “Matron of Honor”, it was “there” wedding, and it went on and on…

 

I know my spelling and grammer are awful so I sure plan on having many people double check anything I write!

Before you print out the entire batch, print just one to look over again. Sometimes you don’t notice something on screen and then you print it and it’s all you see.

I am a grammar/english snob and I would not enjoy receiving an invitation with typos in it. I would reprint.

If it were me and I couldn’t afford more I’d send the “thier” ones.  But only to my closest friends and family.  And I’d red pen correct it and write a note “You’re getting this because you’re so close to me I expect you to wait to tease me about this at least a couple years from now, but then you get free teasing about it for life  Sorry!”  Anyone close to me would want the story, I’d tell them, we’d laugh, and then I’d tell them “seriously, no word of this until we at least come back from our honeymoon, but I’d really like it if you did wait a couple years.”  And they wouldn’t and we’d forever laugh about it.
