People will notice and you will have to live with this on the souvenir invitation you keep. Re-do them with the best paper match you can find. I assure you the paper will not be as noticeable as the spelling error.

@julies1949:  Ditto this advice.  I would notice.  I wouldn’t judge you or anything, of course, but I would notice – and if you’re a perfectionist, you don’t want it nagging at you.

@julies1949:  Agreed.

I guarantee people will notice and it will be what people remember, not the lovely invitations themselves. I would try to find the closest matching paper and redo them. Yeah it sucks but at least that way people can focus on the invitations and not the typo.

What will these be next to? I mean, are they getting sent in with the invitations, for example?  — I’d say if they’re on their own the whole time, just get another paper for those.  If they’re in with the invites and supposed to be on the same paper, you could either try to find a matching paper OR go for one that adds a cute contrast. I wouldn’t leave them as they are though, sorry :-/

@julies1949:  Agreed… I would definitely notice

@loving_life:  Great idea about contrast paper if they’re going next to the pearl paper

I noticed it straight away without even reading your post. I would print them again.

Ugh! Crummy…I would have to print them again.  I am also a perfectionist when it comes to this stuff, especially if I designed or printed them myself.  Sorry hun!!

I would notice if I got that in the mail. As much as it sucks, I think you should redo.

Personally, I would just leave it. However, if you do decide to redo them, the plural of “accommodation” is “accommodation”, not “accommodations” in the same way that the plural of “sheep” is “sheep”, not “sheeps”. Although I have seen “accommodations” used in this way before, it is incorrect. To be honest, that would be the first thing I noticed there (my BA is in English Language and Literaure, and I also teach English as a Foreign Language).

EDIT: I forgot to say that “accommodations” can be used as a verb, but not a noun. Accommodations = the act of accommodating. For example:

“Although we have managed to book a large accommodation block for our guests (NOUN) we have unfortunately been unable to make the necessary accommodations (VERB) for their welcome. In particular, we have been unable to ready the gift baskets in time. I therefore fear that we will be unable to accommodate (VERB) their wishes.”

I say the best match paper -OR- you could pick another colour that fits the colour scheme of the invitation suite. Sometimes I find that something complimentary looks much nicer than an almost-not-quite-match. Looks more like you did it on purpose, lol!

If it makes you feel better, I spelled Desert, instead of Dessert on our menu.  After much deliberation, I redid them all.  Mistakes happen!! Hang in there!!
