i put the wrong street number on my invitations

I just got my invites and as I was organizing them to send, I randomly decided to look up my venue and realized the street number was way off! It said 141 not 154! I was so hung up on stupid formatting, etiquette, and grammar that I completely missed the number.


Should I just reorder them and spend the $50-60 or would it be okay to put a sticker over it? It’s a white background with black text so maybe it won’t look so bad if my designer sends me stickers with the same font??? Argh! Why?!

    No stickers or white out. Mistakes happen, don't stress. Contact customer service asap and ask how to fix the error. They will let you know if they charge for reprints or not.

    Lol 😆 My designer just responded super fast and asked what needs changed. I’m waiting to hear which is a cheaper option but I might just fork the money if it’s not more than $50....I can’t believe I did that!!!

    I actually think it’s ok to put a label over it aha. My friend did that on his invitations when he had a typo. But yea just see what your designer or print company says.

    Oh sure, for only $60 I’d definitely reorder them versus a sticker.

    An enclosed note would work.

    Since guests usually bring the invitation with them in the car, I wonder if it’s better to correct it on the invite itself versus a piece of paper that can get separated from the invitation. I’d hate for guests to be in the wrong place, trying to figure out the correct address and arriving late on your wedding day.

    I think the sticker would be fine. Most guests will gps it, so by putting the venue name in their google maps or mapquest, it’ll pop up with the right address

    Good point...I think I’ll go the sticker route then. $85 extra is already so much

    I think that a sticker would be fine unless you want to spend the extra money.

    I can’t stomach spending $85 just for a number correction 🤢 I think It sounds like the stickers are the best way to go. Hopefully it blends in okay.

    I definitely wouldn’t spend that much especially when most people don’t even keep the invitations they eventually go in the trash!

    I think an insert would be safe. If the name of the venue comes up in Apple Maps / Google Maps, I’d think most people would enter that into their GPS anyway, over the number address. As long as they have the info that the number is wrong, and the name of the venue, even if the only thing they brought with them was the invite itself, they should still be able to find the place with the venue name (as long as it comes up in gps).

    I went with the cheap and easier route though I have to trim the labels myself lol. I need to send these out soon too so I couldn’t wait for shipping for notecards. The designer did send me the files to print myself but it was still like $65....the sticker is nor too bad, goes in the trash anyway I guess.i put the wrong street number on my invitations 1
