I purchased invitations from Ann’s bridal and I’m so embarrassed that I messed them up. I missed that I put “MIssouri” instead of “Missouri”. Right now they are having their semi-annual 30% sale (which is what I paid on Black Friday). Would you pay the $100 or so to fix it or just deal with it?
We are also thinking of moving up our RSVP date, but that’s secondary - only if we do it anyway.

Yes, it bothers me but I think few will notice it...

    Is it just the font that’s different?

    I definitely would not have noticed! I would save your money and keep them. My FMIL and FFIL had his name spelled wrong accidentally but they kept it anyways, no one noticed! Now it’s just a funny memory they have😂❤️

    No, it’s all capitalized but the actual capital letters are larger and I capitalized both the M and the I. So it says MIssouri instead of Missouri. I don’t think many people will even notice but it bugs me!

    Thanks Smiley smile that’s what my BMs said, basically ... girl, you’re such a grammar nerd this is hilarious. But it still bugs me! Haha.

    I don’t think anyone would notice at all, however if it’s something that you will continue to think about and worry that people are seeing it then I’d say go ahead and preorder. Peace of mind may be worth the $100.

    Aw haha! I can be a grammar nerd as well sometimes! Well ultimately do whatever you want, just know I don’t think many people would notice! ☺️

    Thanks. The other option is ordering a small number corrected - at least 1 for my pictures. I’m leaning that way (maybe a few) if it’s not that noticeable. I don’t think I’ve noticed details in any other wedding invitation I’ve received.


    Idk if it’ll be a sweet memory of the error or annoy me if I get a picture of this one, lol!

    Haha right? Ugh it just bothers me. Maybe just a few to be correct ... lol. $100 is a lot for a silly error.

    I wouldn't notice it if I got the invitation. But I had to send out 200 invitations with the wrong year on them (budget didn't allow for fixing my mistake) and I honestly wish I would've just fixed it anways, because I got SO many people teasing me about it. I think my mistake is a lot more noticable than yours Smiley winking Personally, though, I would say $100 is worth peace of mind, as long as you are still going to be able to send them out on time

    I feel like your mistake is smaller than mine. I spelled the word nuptials wrong (I put NUPTUAL) I was typing it in a template and since it was all caps my computer didn’t catch it neither did my fh, sister, mom, and dad. I was so embarrassed when I caught it cuz I got it on a good sale too 40% off for Black Friday. I told my priest and he laughed and said no one even uses that word on a daily bases so they won’t know. My fh, said he wanted to fix the ones going out to his side of the family so we fixed about 30 instead of 120.

    Order a few corrected and mix some in with the first run ones. That way on the off chance someone (we’ll call her Grammar Corrector) does notice it and asks Jane Doe if she saw it Jane Doe will think Grammar Corrector is crazy because Jane Doe’s invite was correct. 😁

    Omg I can’t believe the actual spelling of that word. If I hadn’t looked it up, I would have done the same. *sigh* English is hard Smiley smile

    I was spelling it by sounding it up and yes. Way too hard!

    The l for I substitution, my keyboard types as the same. Or close. On your invitation, even knowing what I was looking for, at first I took it for a deliberate stylized printing , as in some books, when the first letter or two of a new Chapter is bigger. Don't reprint for that.

    2 options:


    1. Can you reach out to them, explain the mistake, and it’s possible they will send you a new corrected batch for free, or hugely discounted! Definitely doesn’t hurt to ask.
    2. If that doesn’t work, and you don’t want to buy all new ones, perhaps just leave them as is and order like 1 or 2 corrected ones just for yourself to save (like if you wanted to keep one and/or bring one to be in some of your details photos). 99.9% of your guests will not notice, not care, toss them after the wedding anyway, but if it’s bothering YOU then maybe just get a corrected one for yourself Smiley smile

    I honestly wouldn't have noticed and I don't think many will. But, if it is something that you want to change, then I'd say reorder them.
