    Yes, I would want to know, even if it was too late to change it.

    No, I'd rather remain blissfully unaware.

    personally, i don’t think i would.

    i know i’m the kind of person who would stress over it, and probably go into a ‘how could i have missed that?’ stage, so if someone just didn’t tell me, it’d be better for my health 😛

    Ohh, that would kill me. I would want to know, but I would stew about it. I take grammar very seriously!

    I wouldn’t want to know b/c it would eat at me until I would be forced to change it. I doubt if I would resend everything again, but I would surely let it be known that I have some correct replacements for those guests who planned on keeping the invite as a keepsake =)

    I’m like you – I’d probably obsess about getting them re-printed, blerg.

    I would want to know but it would totally torture me.  I hate it when apostrophes are used incorrectly, but I can totally understand how things like that can get overlooked in wedding items, especially when you are so focused on other details.

    Ooh…it would bother me so much if I found this…but I think I would want to know. As long as the person telling me is nice about it, rather than snarky.

    I would never open my mouth.  In fact, my friend’s wedding programs had the Ushers listed twice on back to back pages, and it’s been nearly a year and I’ve never brought it up.  There’s nothing to be gained from pointing it out.

    It would probably keep me up at night haha.  But I’d still wanna know (but like you, I wouldn’t let it happen in the first place).  Tongue out

    I would never tell anyone there was a mistake on theirs, because I’m sure it would make them feel awful.

    But I would want to know if there was an error on ours, because I’m a glutton for punishment I guess? It actually depends on whether it was a significant mistake (e.g. wrong date or time) or just a typo (I wouldn’t want to know).

    My mom received an invitation that said “twelveth” instead of “twelfth.”  I am probably the only one in the world that noticed and it totally irked me, but I never would have said anything because they had already gone out.

    Here’s the deal. Some know-it-all will tell her, but she already knows and it was too expensive to have it fixed.


    Keep your mouth shut! No one wants you correcting their grammar (reminding them of a mistake that PROBABLY made her cry when she first saw it)

    I’m a grammarian, so I deal with this all the time. People really don’t want to be told unless there is time to fix it.

    Oh, things like that drive me crazy!  But I don’t think I would want to know.  I would just stew about it and it would make me sad, but I wouldn’t be able to fix it.

    That said, I hope they’re wedding is beautiful and there life is full of blessing’s.
