So, I have worked SO HARD on my wedding programs. I did them all myself. They are six pages covered in burlap covers, and sewn together. 170 programs all printed, pages cut, pages folded, burlap cut and sewn together. I LOVE THEM. We proof read them multiple times, and sent them to my mom to proof before printing.
The programs are finished and my dad cam over the other day. I showed him one of the programs and he opened it up to the page that has the groomsmen’s descriptions. The first line he read was, “Brad is the sister of my soon-to-be-wife.” My dad looked at me and said, “sister??” My heart sank!!!
I called my brother and told him that in our wedding programs that we called him my sister. He just laughed and said he has probably been called worse! He said not to worry about it, and that people probably wont notice, and if they do, it will give them a good laugh.
What would you do… would you leave it as is or would you print out his section by itself, cut it, and glue it over the words. Which will look tacky, I think. It would be so time consuming to re-do, and I am getting close to the big day.

Don’t sweat it. No one will notice and so long as your brother is laughing about it, it’s totally fine!

So sorry this happened given all the effort yu have put in. Your programs sound amazing, I would leave them as they are with the mistake. Few people will notice. If you try to correct it by glueing over the mistake, you are only drawing attention to the problem.

Totally leave it. I added an extra y to a groomsmen’s name in our programs, but I didn’t notice it until I had already printed and assembled a good number of them. I told the groomsman about it and we had a laugh, but I seriously doubt any of the guests will notice.

As long as your brother doesn’t care, leave it 🙂

I would try to fix it by printing the word brother and pasting it on top of it lol but that might make it look worse..

I agree with pp. I just found a mistake in my rsvp cards. I thought I’d try to glue over the problem.. since the mistake HAD to be fixed (it was a chicken option instead of the fish). Do nooooot try to glue over it. It looks… awful. I ended up redo-ing some of my cards, and then just leaving it on a few peoples (that I talk to regularly). I think you should just leave it as is and hopefully people will just glaze right over it when they flip through the programs.

I would add in a conversation bubble with Oops! to make light of the error.
