But that’s what it said on the wedding invitation we received today! I have known the groom for 10 years and the bride for 3 years. In today’s world you can go on facebook and see what my husbands name is… if you really don’t know? I’m wondering if this was a typo or they really think that is his name?

@eeniebeans: well is his name Yhomas and it could be a typo? Or is his name Tom and they thought they were being correct? Or is his name something completely different, like Paul and they’re just wrong.

It begins with the same first letter… But it’s not close- Think like Steven and Shawn.

Was it a printed invite or was his name written on there by the couple? Our invites were all personalized (the guest’s name was on the invite itself, not just the envelope) and I had to give a list of our guests to the designer. In that circumstance I can see a name getting mixed up.

@eeniebeans: I’m guessing it was a complete brain fade. She got to 53rd invitation and mixed two people up or misread.
I would politely (and light heartedly) correct them. e.g. phone them and say, “I’m so excited to get your wedding invitation, but did you realise you put “Thomas” as my husband’s name (laughter / smileys)”

Name just on the outside mailing envelope. Looks like they ran them through a printer- not that there is anything wrong with that.

@eeniebeans: agh that drives me nuts! My best friend always, no matter how many times she sees it on FB or sees me text it to her correctly, spells Mr. H’s name COMPLETELY WRONG! That is so annoying and it makes me feel like she doesn’t care enough to spell it right. Sounds like you’re in the same boat!
ETA: seeing other responses, I guess I’m overreacting ab the name thing…but still. Lol. 🙂

@eeniebeans: My Dad’s step father (the only grandpa I have ever known on that side of the family) is named “Albert”, but goes by “Bert”. I sent his invite as “Robert”.
I’d give it a pass.

I honestly feel bad for the bride because if I had done that it would have driven me NUTS!

@eeniebeans: Lol, aw that is sucky but I couldn’t help but giggle!
Any chance someone else has YOUR name and their SO is named Thomas?

Sorry about the mix-up, but I’d give it a pass. One of my very best friends could NEVER remember my SO’s (and then DH’s) name. Nevermind that I’d been with him for a very long time, and she knew both of us. She would default to calling him “Chuck” (not even close to what his name is). I could have been angry that she chose never to remember someone very important to me, or I could choose to laugh. I chose the latter, and we still receive holiday cards addressed to “Chuck and Echo _____”.
In this case, it sounds like it was an accidental mistake. It can easily happen when someone is sorting through countless names/invites.

@eeniebeans: I’m voting some sort of oopsy between their list and whatever software/program they used or a brainfart as previously mentioned. I would just put the correct name on the RSVP then make sure to drop your husband’s name in conversation or message at some point to make sure.

I think it was brain overload. My sister mixed up two men’s first names got the wife’s first name and last names correct but put Richard where is should have been Peter ans vice versa. It has to be hard addressing a ton if invitations.

I definitely had brain lapses when I was reaching the end of addressing everything.
