T-minus 10 days to the wedding and I’ve discovered my first wedding mistake (better late than never, right?)
So, I had a large seating chart poster made (kind of pricey) and just happend to notice after seeing it printed that my 17 year old nephews (who are my half-nephews, but what the heck is that) were mistakenly given my brother/stepfather’s last name.
Now, everywhere else their names are correct (e.g. programs) but considering the cost (and that there were 156 other names correctly given) should I spend more money to have this corrected?
Don’t know what to do…Help me, Bees! 🙂 Thank you!!!

I would say no – just call them up before the wedding and explain your error and apologize. No need to spend extra money for something they’ll spend barely a minute looking at!

@chastetiltuesdayFB: Now, I realize it won’t look as pristine as it does now, but would there be a way to print out a label that uses the same font to put over it?

Can you put a label over their names to correct them? I know it’s not perfect, but it’s really not worth reprinting (vs. programs or invites, for ex.)

Call your brother to let him know (so they can find the kids), apoligize for the error, and let it go as printed. That’s what I’d do.

Can you cover it without making it look too obvious?

I agree with PP — I would try to fix it yourself… white out, label, something?

If you can’t fix it easily, just let them know to search for that name. Mistakes happen!

I agree don’t trash the whole thing, I think either print out a label to correct it, or explain to the kids and apologize.

My partners name was wrong on the seating chart of our friends wedding. He didn’t even notice but when I pointed it out, we forgot about it very quickly. Minor issue I’m sure most wouldn’t mind. Not worth trashing over
