My mom decided to stuff all of the invitations with the RSVP cards and direction cards (even though I asked her to wait for me to do it). We weren’t planning on sending out the invites for another month, so of course I hadnt put stamps or numbered the RSVPS. While unstuffing all of the envelopes I noticed she damaged the corners of almost all them (3 survived out of 120). Then I realised she has been repeatedly slamming them down on the table to get them to line up, before she put them back into the box they came in. All the corners have small frays and the paper is starting to separate. On some invitations all 4 corners are bent. It is very slight but enough to be annoying. These were far from cheap invitations and there is no time to order more. I know that invitations are likely to get beaten up in the mail before my guests recieve them. I just cant imagine what theyll look like after a trip across the country in a postage sack. Just venting
Sometimes people’s help, is so unhelpful

SparkleBee11: Ugh! I’m sorry. I would be annoyed too. Maybe you can post a pic of some of the invites so we can see if they’re that bad? I know you must be annoyed and frustrated wanting them to be perfect. So in your eyes, you’ll notice all the little imperfections. Lol. Maybe they won’t be as bad when guest receive them.

SparkleBee11: Well, the silver lining I guess is that your mom wanted to help. Chances are that they will get beat up a bit in the mail. I wouldn’t stress about it (but def tell your mom to calm down w/ her stuffing practices…sheesh)

SparkleBee11: “Sometimes people’s help, is so unhelpful” I feel you on that one!! I’m sorry about your banged up invites. That would really annoy me too. I’m sure guests won’t notice at all, though!

That sucks 🙁
It sounds like the mushed up envelopes are the outside ones. If they are seriously at risk of splitting, can you get some (inexpensive) outer envelopes to nest the splitting ones in and put the postage/addresses on the outer envelopes?
