Party Foul: Printing the Wrong Information

A few weeks ago FabSugar and I went to a party celebrating an issue of SOMA magazine. According to the invite, the party started at 7 p.m. Always fashionable, we arrived around 8. To our horror, the party had yet to begin! Apparently the event didn't start until 9 p.m. The invite in my purse clearly said 7, and we weren't the only ones who made the same mistake —there was a small group who arrived to party at 7.

It's not cool to print and send invitations with the wrong information. Guests will be angry, and the party's success could be at stake. Just imagine if you hosted a party and guests arrived while you were in the shower? Be sure to triple-check your invites before mass printing, and if a typo occurs, or a sudden change happens, notify your guests as soon as possible.

Has this ever happened to you? Ever been invited to a party only to realize too late that the invitation was misleading or printed with false information? Or worse, have you ever had an invite printed with the wrong information? Tell us all about it in the comments!

I just went to a party this weekend where the address of the bar was wrong. Instead of 1420 the street number was listed at 142. I found a restaurant that I thought was close to the bar and decided to walk. Instead of 3 blocks, I ended up walking 17 blocks in heels and freezing weather!

Did I mention the invite said 6pm?!

This happened to me too, but it was was for a wedding that I didn't even want to go to begin with! Ugh! My husband and I, along with a handful others, showed up at 6:30 (also double-checking our invites) and the banquet crew was still vaccuuming!! I was so extremely turned off. Apparently being that it was a small family function, everyone knew that it would "really" start at 8...but I guess noone bothering clueing the rest of the invitees in. The worse part? IT WAS A DRY WEDDING! So I couldn't even drink my awkwardness away! The worst event experience I've had.

Ugh, such a bummer. We ended up having a little too long of a night b/c we just starting drinking when we were waiting for the party to start. Good times though. :KISS:

I RSVP'd for a black tie event preview of a great exhibit at the downtown discovery museum. The invite clearly said 7pm, the email confirmation said 6pm. We got there as soon as we could, but the place looked deserted. I was SO BUMMED.

Oh, my...that must have been something for you and Fab! I used to be a Custom Printing Specialist at a stationery company and this sort of thing happened ALL the time where people didn't check the information and the date and time, name etc. were wrong. Some people would shrug it off and would say' Oh it will be okay" and then would come back for their next order and tell me how they couldn't been more wrong. You are right Yum, ALWAYS, ALWAYS check the info. It's better to be safe then sorry!

No, this has never happened to me! That's terrible. You would think they'd proofread it before they sent it out...jeez.
