    I say send them out to make her happy and also send out another one that matches your theme at the same time...so send 2 in one envelope! Yeah, extra postage, but you'll have some peace of mind and all of your friends will know the deal when you tell them. Tell your mom's friend that one of your BMs made invites as well and you didn't have the heart to exclude hers. Whomp! There it is! Win Win!

      At first, from far away, I was thinking they weren't that bad. But the close ups made me change my mind. The glue trails and pearls... They definitely resemble something I might have made in 2nd grade and brought home to my mom. (sorry if I sound harsh) With that said, I still don't know if it would be worth it to me to hurt someone's feelings (potentially pretty badly) over a shower invite. People are going to read them and then throw them out after the shower. If you thank her for them at the shower she would appreciate it and everyone there knows you well enough to know they aren't your taste.

        This.

        It's a tough pill to swallow, but use her cards and thank her graciously.

          Well I just saw the picture. Ok not as bad as it could be.

          I would say go ahead and send them. Everyone knows they are not from you anyway....

            Those are really, uh, bad!
            I know most girls don't agree, but I still think you shouldn't send them.
            I know we are all adults but we are the worst when it comes to being critics. If that happened to me, I know I wouldn't send them out. Yeah, a shower is about the bridal partying throwing it for you but it has your name on it! You've done such a great job wit the STD's that the would shock people to receive something like that. I would hate hurting her feelings, so I would lie but I know I couldn't live with myself if those invites went out to my guests in my honor!!
            I hope you make the descion that makes YOU happy and that YOU can live with. Good luck!

              i don't think they are that bad. I really expected a lot worse. The seashell and sand look nice. I would just send them out and not worry about it. Everyone's already seen how great your STDs and Boarding passes were, no one will think you had anything to do with the shower invites. Forget about them.

                Yes, they aren't the cutest thing in the world, but seeing how they're shower invites, I would let it go. Make sure she doesn't get involved again hehe. It's sad because I think she was really trying to be creative and it didn't work out so well. It will be one of those things you can laugh about in 20 years. Make sure to save one for your scrap book! :)

                  I know she probably meant well and had a great idea - it just didn't land on the paper that good - at all!!
                  I don't really have an opinion whether to send them out or not. My aunt gave me my shower and sent out the worst invites EVER. There were grammer issues, spacing issues and just crappy issues in general. I didn't know what they looked like until I got to the shower and my mom brought me hers for me to keep. No one ever said anything to me about how ugly they were. It's not a reflection on you.

                    IMHO, this is your event and I think that at the end of the day, you should be happy. Maybe you should just tell her that you appreciate all of her hard work, and they are lovely, but they don't quite go with your theme.

                      LoL. They look kind of like my STD's and I'm so horribly embarrassed by those [and I made them myself].

                      On the other hand, people will know that they didn't come from you, and some might even think that they are kind of fun. But remember that it is a shower invite, so you aren't even suppose to be aware of what they look like.

                      The evil side of me says to spill something on them, but my good side says just let it go and make fun of them on here.
