I KNEW I would do something like this!!!
I just sealed up all our invitations today. They’re sitting on the table ready to be mailed in the morning. And I forgot to put the info on our rain plan in them. Crap.
If it rains our ceremony will be moved from outdoors to the reception hall. I got a free googlevoice phone number, and was going to set a recording by 2pm letting guests know if the ceremony was moved, that way if the weather was iffy, they could call and find out. It was a great plan, because then I could get information out quickly without everyone calling me on that morning asking if there was a rain plan.
Now I don’t know what to do. We don’t have a wedding website, and even if we made one now, I would still have the same problem of getting the information out since that wasn’t in the invitations either. The stamps are on already and we don’t have enough extra envelopes to re-do them all.
Help bees, what should I do!?

Ouch. I hate when stuff like that happens! Can you send out an email or have a chain of emails and phone calls to give people the number? Like your parents notify their guests, you and your Fiance email all of yours, his parents contact their guests.
It would actually be a nice way to touch base with everyone and get a feel for how many people are coming too! I know it’s a pain but I’m all for anything that makes the wedding day less stressful…

Steam them open and then reseal with some sealing wax and a fancy stamp? You can get the wax and a stamp at Michaels. That’s all I can think of!

I would probably just let it go and mail the invites out. If it was really really important, I would most likely email the number out and tell everyone about it via word of mouth.

Sorry, this happened to you.
I would purchase new envelopes and then open and readdress each one again 🙁

I would say just send out the information to the people that rsvp they are coming!

Bummer! I would also send it to the people who RSVP or put it on your site if you have one. And if it makes you feel better I sent mine out, then realized I forgot to include our engagement picture! oops! lol.

@ladyox- that sounds like the most practical decision at this point. If I only give the info to the people who rsvp yes, and split up the responsibility, it won’t be so bad. Plus, I don’t have the time or money to re-do the envelopes. I mean, I would lose a 61 cent stamp per envelope, plus the cost of the new envelopes, plus having to spend the time to address them all over again- it makes me want to cry just thinking about it!
