Thoughts?

So I just got an email from a guest that he will not be bringing his girlfriend, as they broke up this week. He is bringing a friend of his as his date. He told me not to change the escort card (A few weeks ago I had asked him for his gf's name spelling for the escort card.) and to leave the ex-gf's name on it. I had them made by designs by MK. She sent me a few blank, but I can't print on them so I'd have to hand write it. I think I should hand write a new one but he said not to do so. Any thoughts? Leave the ex's name on the card or write "John Smith and Guest?"

    hm...i think I would probably rewrite it...unless it will look silly being different from the rest. Then I would leave it as is.

    Might as well write a new one if you have extas.

    It will definitely look very different from the rest of them. However I think it's weird to have some other girl's name on there! He made it seem like it was no big deal though

    I was expecting you to ask if you should tell him not to bring his "friend"

    Can you see if she can print a new one for you? Less than a week before my wedding I had a couple of new cards printed.I'd rewrite it. Who wants to go to a wedding and see their recent x's name on a card?

    Another option is to tell him that you won't have a card for him but he'll be sitting at table x.  I did this to people who changed like 2 days before the wedding (could suddenly come, or come without a date and thus would be sitting elsewhere). I just said, "That's totally cool that you're coming. I had my table cards printed already, please remember you'll be table 20."

    yea I think I'll try to re-write it. I don't care so much about it looking different, but he was so insistent that it wasn't necessary so I wasn't sure. Brad, I'm cool with him bringing another date. Honestly, we're 2 people under our minimum, so it helps me out! lol

    Yeah, it's obviously not your first choice solution, but I'm a bit anal retentive and I don't think I'd want a card looking so obviously different.

    why in the world would he request you keep the ex's name?  to make it easier on you?  how uncomfortable.  i'd hand-write a new one and not worry about it looking slightly different.  no one will notice.

    Maybe he has hopes of getting back with her?  I'd change it.

    I was thinking the same thing....maybe there's still a chance that he might bring her last minute? In that case he probably doesn't want her to know that she was so easily replaced.I would probably just put white out over the ex-GF's name, and leave it as John Smith table 20...whoever he brings will know that they are seated together and at least the card wouldn't look too different from the others.Either way I wouldn't put "and guest" I would find out the name of his new date if you’re going to rewrite it.
