and I’m so mad at myself I could scream. I obsessively designed, checked and triple checked everything on that damn card but had a dyslexic moment and misspelled FH’s last name on the info blurb on the back of the card. He didn’t even notice, it was his sister that pointed it out when I texted her a picture of the cards after they arrived.
I have already reordered them with the correct spelling and cannot return the ones I have, just wanted to vent.
Please share your wedding planning hiccups to make me feel better.

I ordered double the amount of invitations that I needed. We invited 90 people, and I bought 100 invites. But there were 35ish couples, so I only needed 50 invites…. duh!

I called our photographer the wrong name in a text. I was mortified. I feel like I should double check my own save the dates now though…

I think I did something similar with our save the dates. We had a huge stack leftover. Oh well.

Lol I was paranoid about doing something similar. At least you learned your lesson for the invites 😂
I’ll bet that happens more often then we think. #BrideBrain

I ordered these Save the Dates: https://www.minted.com/product/foil-stamped-save-the-date-cards/MIN-ZCM-SFS/simply-striking?color=A&greeting=&shape=default
When I was playing with the design I changed the word “Hitched” to “Married”. Apparently when I pulled the trigger on ordering I forgot to change it and they arrived saying “Courtney & Mark are getting HITCHED”. This reaaaaally bothered me and I just couldn’t let it go. My FH thought I was bananas but I ended up reordering. 🙂

I know you’re mad but that’s actually really funny!
If I were u I would have just sent them out and if anyone noticed you could joke that you need more practice writing your new last name (if you’re taking his last name) or jokingly say thank God you’re not taking his last name so you don’t have to remember how to spell it if you’re keeping your last name lol

oh bless you. I would be so annoyed with myself if I did that.

omg that would drive me insane too. Those are beautiful cards… why ruin them with such a tacky word like “hitched”? I would have reordered too!

The day of my wedding we had no table cloths for the reception lol. The caterer was supposed to bring them but she thought the wedding coordinator did so my coordinator ran out and got them. I actually didn’t know about this gaffe until it had already been solved and I found it funny.
Wedding mistakes happen but it’s good to look at the big picture 🙂

Oh no bee that is mortifying! But a little funny though. It reminds me of that scene from My Big Fat Greek Wedding where they get the wedding invitations and they misspelled the groom’s parents names “Rodney and Harry” LMAO

It’s been ages since I’ve seen that movie 😂 I could tell Future Mother-In-Law didn’t find it very funny in the text thread… 🤷🏻♀️
I’m so glad I have a coordinator for things like this.
