If it makes you feel any better – I MISSPELLED MY MOTHER’S NAME and I even had my Fiance look at it! Her name is Teresa, and I put Theresa – what the heck was I thinking?! Thankfully, she laughed and my dad laughed, and only then was I finally able to laugh it off. Nobody is really going to notice except for a select few family members and friends, and even then they’ll be laughing it off too!
I chalk it up to “Bride Brain”!
Don’t worry about correcting it. If someone has a dietary restriction, I’m sure they will notify you! My Mother-In-Law is allergic to almonds, we have friends who are invited that are allergic to peanuts, and I’m sure there are more dietary allergies that people have that I can’t think of. It’s not your responsibility to keep tabs on their allergies, it’s theirs to ask.
I’m sure your invites and RSVPs look amazing! 🙂

@vess5: Do not panic. Its really nice of you to include a diatary restriction line, but most invitations dont have one.
If you cant get it added, it ok and not a huge deal.
If its left off just try to learn via word of mouth, ask the parents if anyone has these allergies.
Also you can look at your own menu and make sure people have options. The major issues are usaually shellfish (shrimp, lobster, etc) Nuts (peanuts are a BIG issue) Berries (strawberries can kill believe it or not) and Dary (usaually just causes a tummy ache but can cause asthma).
If you have alternatives, or dont serve the above, its not really an issue.

I only put it on mine because I have friends who are always messing around with what they can and can’t eat. They can’t eat cream, or they can’t eat gluten, or eggs, or whatever. None of them are allergies– just intolerances, and I can’t keep them straight. I figured if I had them write it down, it would be “in stone”.

@yehyehgirl: Don’t sweat it – that is something little. If someone has dietary restrictions they will either call you or note it on the back of the RSVP card. By The Way: This issue is fairly new practice and not really expected – honestly, ask if your parents or grandparents had it in their day. Getting your FI’s name wrong – now that is big!

No worries – if they have a dietary preference, they’ll let you know.
