So I made a mistake in my addressing of invitations, after doing about 65 in a row – my fathers relatives (adjusted for privacy) names are John & Sarah Johnson, and some family friends are John & Anne Johns. I got the first one exactly right but I accidentally addressed the second one as John & Sarah Johns. Yikes, right? Unfortunately, John & Anne’s two sons got married recently, both to women in political families and in multi $100000 weddings. I’m sure they had a calligrapher doing their invites and everything was double, triple and quadruple checked before it was sent out. Well, I’m sorry but I work 65 hrs a week and took 4 hours on a saturday afternoon to address all my invites and yes, I made a bad mistake. But Sarah took it upon herself to send a TIRADE of abuse to my mother about how terrible I was and there was no possible way they could make our wedding (more room for my friends!!)…she even said they were on the fence (it would involve a big trip for them), but have now decided no. I have to be honest here……i’m having a hard time caring! I sent a profusely appologetic email, but my heart wasn’t in it – i kind of just think, you have to let shit slide sometimes! Someone effed up your name? Can’t you see it from their stressed out and overworked pt of view?
Sorry – just needed to vent after composing my disingenuous email!

I would honestly just laught it off if you had incorrectly addressed my invitation, especially if I knew how much you work and how you felt like you were “on a roll” on a Saturday afternoon. Sounds like she’s a major b****. Be glad she’s not going to be there judging every aspect of your wedding!

Wow… Some people need to get over themselves! Well, I can say you probably didn’t want them at your wedding snubbing everything else too.

Good riddance to bad rubbish!

I messed up the last names of my brother-in-law’s girlfriend and her primary partner – they took each others last names as middle names and I switched them (So it was Jane Doe-Smith and John Smith-Doe, and I did the opposite).
Then I messed up my brother-in-law’s ex-wife’s last name (she goes by maidenname-marriedname on Facebook and just marriedname in real life).
Thankfully all my Future Brother-In-Law did was raz me a bit on BBM.
Seriously, there’s nothing you can do! Yay for saving money on dinner!

Wow, who has time to make such a big deal over a tiny and very understandable mistake. Yes, it’s not great that you addressed their invite to the wrong people, but in the grand scheme of things, does it even really matter? No. Good thing they’re not coming!

Ohh goodness…how dare you!
eeek ! Well Im glad you have a great attitude in response to the show she put on for an honest mistake.
I’m sure the rest of the wedding planning and the big day itself will go fabulously!

Things happen. If it bothers her that much, it’s better that they don’t attend. It doesn’t sound like they are people who would be fun to be around at your reception anyway.
