    Can you tell her something happened like you spilled water all over them or something?  Can you just lie and say the post office lost it? 

    I’m sorry :(.  I hope you can get Save-The-Date Cards you like.

    Save the dates can be pretty casual. Some people don’t send them at all. I would just suck it up and send them out. She went through all that trouble. However I would tell her no thank you to the invites and find something else.

    Yes pics please?

    Sometimes its hard being a Bride, so many people offer to help you and yet your always going to be super fussy cause you want everything to be perfect. I’m a super fussy Bride and I certainly wouldn’t send them out if I wasn’t happy with them or would feel embrassed to post them. What a disapointing and awkward situation for you to be in.

    Have you shown any friends or family members for their option, they may be able to help, they could be ok in their eyes? Can you tidy them up yourself at all before you post them? If they are square or rectangle could you change to shape of the invite so the unevenness isn’t as noticeable?

    Be prepared to suck it up, post them out and still use her for the invites, depending on if she would be offended. Is there any way you could offer to help her to create your invites, just say you know its alot of work and you would like to help, that way you can overseel her work a little bit, but dont take over! I also might be best to be honest with her and say thanks but no thanks. I would seek advice from your Fiance and parents before saying anything.

    Best of luck.

    I would buy new ones and get a proffesional to make your invites. Wonky is not ok for wedding invites.

    Don’t risk your invites being any less than whatever makes you happy. If you’re worried about sending out your current Save-The-Date Cards … then don’t. She did go through a lot of hard work to make them, maybe send them to the people on your list that she knows? Those don’t know her get something a little more your taste. You can always say some got ruined, and the ones you were able to save you wanted “family” to be able to enjoy.

    Honestly, I’d be so hurt if you didn’t send them out and I had made them. I’d be really upset if they got ‘ruined’ somehow too. 

     

    I get that weddings are all about what the bride wants and it being a perfect ‘vision’, but what is the day really all about? I just can’t imagine hurting a family member like that.

    @ticatica:  I see what you mean. They are nice… just kind of generic. 

     

    Good luck… such a tough situation.

    Yeah. I wouldn’t want to send them out, either. I’m not sure what your best option is. I would definitely make other plans at this point for the invites.

    I think I could handle the imperfections if they had more originality or personality.
