I oops’ed when ordering the champagne for our champagne toast. Our venue asked if I had a brand preference or a price range for the special order, and I named my favorite (Piper Heidsieck Brut, not the cuvee)… completely forgetting that it’s not a $25 bottle of champagne… all the money we saved by not having a limo went right into the champagne glasses lol. At least we were able to take the excess couple of bottles home.

I had return address labels printed for our save-the-dates. After they were all assembled for mail out, I noticed that the return address was accidentally a hybrid between my current address and where we will be moving at the end of the month and hence, does not exist.

I sent them anyway. Honey badger don’t care.

I put the wrong number for the hotel on the insert with the guest block hotel room information. It was a hybrid of their fax number and their phone number. I called it and found that it was a salon. Whoops! Hopefully people know enough to just check our website or look up the hotel online!

@emilyrose114:  Are you sure they need another stamp?? Postcards stamps are only $0.46 I thought!

I’ve been stenciling the letters for the large board that will show the guests where to go for what on the estate. Basically I stencil each letter in pencil on chalkboard contact paper, and then fill it in with white sharpie one letter at a time (waiting for each to dry before I fill in the next letter). I went to cut the one that took the longest to make “Cocktail Hour”…and cut it completely crooked. Had to re-start on it. 

 

That wouldn’t be so bad but it’s my 3rd time re-making it, the first time I used a chalk marker (and it looked great) only to find that the letters flaked off over time, I even tried using hairspray to make it stick better, but the letters still started flaking off. 

 

 

 

Nothing compared to re-doing all your invites but it’s all I have so far *knocks on wood*
