I would say, in the end it’s just a detail and go with it.  But you need to ask yourself if 3, 10 15,50 years from now will you look back and think it was silly, no big deal and who really would have cared, or will you say to yourself, “I’m so glad we spent xxx more on new envelopes and hired a writer so that we had really great looking mail?”

They won’t care what they look like.  Don’t stress out.  But now you know for future reference.

It’s really not a big deal and no one will remember how your invitations were addressed or how perfect they are.  I totally understand wanting them to be perfect, but it’s a very minor detail and not worth the hassle to redo them.

Your invitations will set the tone (the inside parts) more than how they are addressed.

Awe that sucks (I understand your frustration) but no one will notice or care how the outer envelope is addressed!

I 100% understand how you feel.  Future Mother-In-Law did the same for my Save-The-Date Cards.  She offered and I accepted because she has BEAUTIFUL cursive.  Well, I was at one of my friends’ house when she received hers, and when I saw it, I wanted to cry.  It looked like she had her 14 year old son write them out.  BUT, I just said oh well, I learned my lesson. 

NOW, I don’t ever even think about it, I have MUCH more important things on my mind, and NOBODY even cared.  We are the only ones that pay attention to those little details. 

C’est la vie.  All we can do is move on.

my thoughts are its the envelope only so dont worry too much about it. yes you have a huge perfect picture in your head but its just the address and once the envelope is opened chances are the person will throw it out and keep the invite only

i would let it go – there are more important things to worry about

The envelope is going to be in the trash 5 minutes after it is recieved. I would use the 9 extra envelopes for extra special guests, or anyone who has a truely terrible envelope. But in the end, no one will notice/care/remember. Sorry that your momw as so careless with something so important to you. That is really frustrating.

Seirously, before I was bride I never noticed details like that.  Most guests won’t even bat an eye
