    It's a huge embarrassing, disaster! I would be mortified and run away and hide and cry! : (4 votes)

    That sucks! Have vistaprint send a new, second batch to make up for the cut off names! : (14 votes)

    Bummer, but as long as date, website, and bride/groom's names are correct, not the end of the world. : (16 votes)

    Relax, most guests wouldn't notice or care. Printers mess up, they'll understand. No biggie! : (8 votes)

    I would call all couples with different last names – better to do that then have them wonder about it. It’s clearly not your fault, so I think anyone you call would understand and appreciate it.

    As for vistaprint, call a manager and complain!

    Complain to Vistaprint and use Catprint for your invitations.  They’re about the same price and will send you a free hard copy proof to approve before you finalize the printing 🙂

    it will be ok….definitely not ideal but hopefully it will be a good laugh (someday….need a little time before it gets funny) and people will understand…..

    That is horrible! So sorry you are having to deal with that!  We all want our wedding stuff to be perfect so I know how upsetting that is!  I would call those who you think would be offended and let them know about Vistaprints mistake.  And I would call Vistaprint and complain!

    Yeah, I’d probably just call/send out an email to each of the couples who will have 1 person not named and say, “We had a printing glitch & half the names were cut off, but we are of course inviting both you and Billy Bob!” Or whatever. 

    Don’t worry — this can be fixed relatively easily!

    @LilDrAnya:  Ahh, I would be so angry. After all the time and effort you put into every little detail of the STD’s and they messed up. I would call vistaprint and demand a refund.

    I agree with other ladies that you should call or even just email the guests with two last names and explain the situation. You also don’t want them wondering who is invited!

    Technically, for a non-married couple-you only send a save the date to the person you’re inviting. Like say-if you’re friends with Kim Kardashian and you’re inviting her and Kanye-you’d only address the STD to Kim-you’re telling her to save the date for your wedding…you put Kanye on the invite only. Hope you have some of these instances so it lessens the number of Save-The-Date Cards excluding people!

    I tend to over react and with this particular situation, I totally would! I would first cry and freak out then get REALLY pissed off and call up Vistaprint and demand they give me a partial refund or something.  I know, not what you should do but that’s totally what I would end up doing had this happened to me. :/

    Hope no one is offended! *hugs*

    @LilDrAnya:  At least they were willing to do that! 

    Totally stinks, but I would just make some phone calls and explain what happened. Most people will be understanding!

    People will be understanding! Silly Vistaprint. I would definitely, DEFINITELY call and politely but firmly get ALL my money back. C’mon.
