The Office Groom and I printed out our invites last night! YAY! After hours of designing our invites, picking out the paper at a local shop, and printing them at O.G.’s office (ha!), we had ourselves some really nice looking invites. I was so proud of them, that I decided to take one with me to work today and show them to a co-worker.
The design is pretty different – it’s a short funny story of how O.G. and I met, and there’s a lot of text, in different fonts (inspired by this very cool invite I found online. Image below). I thought I had proofread it a billion times over – so did OG – so when my co-worker pointed out that I spelled “treked” instead of “trekked” my heart broke into little pieces!
GAHHHH! How could I have not noticed that? I feel like such an idiot! Here I am, putting in all this time and effort, only to discover 150 printed invites later than I have a typo. Grrrr. Please, oh please, tell me that I’m not the only one out there! I wouldn’t normally sweat the small things, but I took a lot of pride in designing them myself 🙁
PS – We’re not “Jill & Matt.” I just used the design as inspiration.

I really doubt most people would notice. Is your coworker an editor?

I don’t think people will notice. Honestly, just looking at it, I didn’t know it had two k’s.
This is a bit different but when we did our announcement, they spelled the name wrong in the bar on top (not in the actual announcemnt though) and we didn’t notice it.

Don’t worry, hon. I promise you that no one will notice!

I just read your invitation like, four times, and I can’t even find where you put “treked” so I think you’re ok 🙂
People will be so blown away by your cute invite, they will NEVER notice. If it makes you feel any better, I put the wrong street on my directions card for where the parking lot for my venue is. I’m hoping no one notices 😉

Oh, lol! That’s because this was my inspiration, not my actual invite 🙂 We’re not “Jill & Matt.”
Thanks though ladies! I just feel like such a dope for not noticing that (or knowing that it was incorrect to begin with lol)

I still don’t know where the spelling error is LOL. And your invites are so cute and amazing! I think people will be so impressed by the invited themselves that noone will even notice.

I bet they won’t notice! Plus, studies have proven that as long as the first and last letter are in the right place, you can read it! No worries!!!!

@roxy821 – ours looks almost identical to the photo!

I would never notice that! And I tend to pick up mistakes when I’m reading books… a lot of which are best sellers, meaning not even their editors picked up on it. Don’t stress it!

I didn’t know it was spelled with two K’s so don’t sweat it!
@Rosie.. it actually has to start and end with the right letter and have the correct number of letters : )

If it’s any consellation I just sent out my invites:
I spelled turn – tuurn
I forgot to include the address to the ceremony & the reception (but I have detailed directions to both, the address is on the website & the dvd slideshow, so they do have a some sort of access to it…lol)
It’s ok I think people know that we are all human and we do make mistakes…

Don’t sweat it, most people really won’t notice! And half way through slaving over my programs, I noticed a mistake, and that was after 4 people had proofed it! It’s not worth stressing over!

Thank you for this post! I spent a couple of hours crying last week when my fiance told me that one of our guests discovered (after invites were sent out) that my RSVP card had TWO places marked for “Will Attend” instead of one “Will Attend” and one “Will Not Attend.” I’m not a super-obsessed bride, but I was mortified. And then later in the day, I was mortified that I had let it bother me so much! So don’t sweat it. Chances are people won’t notice. And if they do, you’re inviting people who love you and are going to continue to love you whether you spelled the word correctly or not.
