Debate: Let it go! Don't Sweat the Small things! ??? You be the judge

Recommended Posts

I thought I would start a thread to post topics and we can ask each other this question, "Should I let this go, or does it require more energy?" I am sure we all get to the point and ask ourselves, "Does this really require this much stress?" Two weeks from the wedding and everything seems stressful I can't tell anymore. Maybe you are with me!?

 

My situation is I just finished my DIY programs last night. I posted them under DIY. I showed them to FI last night after I was all excited about them and he said, "Is "your" mispelled?" I freaked out! Iam a grammar nut! I can't believe I wrote Your, instead of You're. This is in a title of a song.

 

So do I let it go? Or do I reprint. Obviously there are worst things. So do I let it go and let people judge my poor grammar? Or re-print, re-roll, and re-tie. Fiance says to write it in! Haha

 

Any thoughts?

Bess - Personally, I wouldn't sweat it. You're two weeks out from the big day and I think the last thing you need to worry about is reprinting your programs. Most people probably won't even notice or care. Just my $0.02 though.

I think because it is a program, and more of a nice touch to the ceremony, most guests won't even notice. They will be busy taking in the beautiful atmosphere and probably skimming the program. I say let it go and focus on the bigger things.. Esp since it is just in a song title, not like you spelled your mom's name wrong or something.

I agree- nobody will notice & it's not worth stressing out over so close to the wedding.

 

My program barely followed the order of the actual ceremony and nobody even noticed that. lol

I don't think it's worth worrying about... But then again, if someone else had printed my programs and misspelled something, I would be ticked, LOL! I'm the same way about grammar and misspellings, so less printed material is better for my sanity! We did our own invites and FH kept wanting to change the type (font, setting, etc) and it was the only fight we've had the whole year we've been planning!!

I agree that most people won't even notice, but I would re-do them. I'm an English teacher and it would kill me knowing it wasn't right.

I would definitely let that go!!! If people are noticing something stupid like that then they're there for the wrong reasons! lol. If there were a bunch of mistakes, then fine, reconsider, but honestly it's one little mistake :)

i last-minute-decided to do programs, like 2 days before the wedding. we spent 4 hours, money, and effort.

 

during the reception i found the box, over half full still, sitting on a counter by a sink. whoever was supposed to put one on each seat at the ceremony half-assed it and got distracted or something and it didnt get done/finished.

 

so thats also my "what wouldnt you do if you had to do it again" :)

 

basically im saying i wouldnt bother fixing it. if someone notices a missing 're, they have way too much time on their hands and should have called you 2 weeks before the wedding to proofread your programs hahaha wink.gif

dont sweat it. i think most of the programs i made were thrown out after the ceremony. most people just skim them anyway and wont notice "your" instead of "you're".

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
