Ugh-- spelling bites me in the backside!

Recommended Posts

One of what I am sure will be many funny/frustrating wedding planning moments:

 

Last night I had an old friend from Ireland over for dinner -- he was travelling through the states and just in town for a bit so it was great to catch up. Since I'm so excited about wedding planning-- I wanted to show him stuff about the wedding. I had made postcards for the OOT bags for folks and the picture on the front is an image I shot at one of the local beaches on the island. Then in the upper corner, it says the name of the island and the month, year of the wedding.

 

He looks at it and says "what language is september in?" -- and he's dead serious, not realizing that it isn't written in a foreign language -- it's is JUST MISSPELLED!

 

Opps. Apparently, I'm getting married in Sepetember 2009 and I have 100 postcards to prove it. Eek. Luckily I only paid for shipping (I think it was about $10) so it's not the end of the world. Just a silly, stupid little mistake.

 

Oh well. At least he caught them before I put them in the OOT bags!

 

Time to re-order!

I'm just waiting to find a typo on my invitations. It's amazing, no matter how many times you proof-read something, a mistake always seems to get through. Like you said though, at least it's only $10.

Dont feel bad it is ten dollars. I am a teacher and my students are constantly correcting my spelling. I play it off by saying I was testing you, and I give them 5 points on the next test.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
