Don't Make This Embarrassing Mistake on Your Wedding Invitations

You know how you're not supposed to put registry information on your wedding invitation? Well, it's also probably not a good idea to ask guests for the "honor of your presents" instead of the "honor of your presence":

Before ordering your invitations, always ask a few other people to look over the wording carefully; when you've spent so much time designing and wording your invitations, it's far too easy to overlook a similar word that has a completely different meaning.

Tip: When proofreading, read backwards (so start with "follow" on this invite). Often, your brain will automatically correct an error that you read in a sentence based on the context, but if you read it backwards, you're forced to think more carefully.
