Anachronisms 

In the opening party sequence, a logo sheet on Hannah's door shows various Cornell logos, including the redesigned crest logo, which wasn't used until 2004. In 1998, the official Cornell logo was the "Big Red Box", which was frequently criticized for looking like the J.C. Penney logo.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Hannah chastises the store owner for having an alligator purse, the camera focuses on her and she says "You should be ashamed of yourself." The camera pulls back to follow Tom petting the dog. Hannah repeats her line, this time with no audio.
When Hannah is on a plane to Scotland, the announcement sounds like it came from an airport public loudspeaker. It should be a dampened sound from an overhead speaker.

Character error 

Hannah says Colin needs permission to marry her because he is a duke. She talks to her minister at Grace Church, one of New York's historic Episcopal (Anglican) churches. If Colin is a Scottish Peer, he would be Presbyterian, and not allowed to marry in the Church of England.
When Tom and all the bridesmaids arrive in Scotland and greet Collin and Hannah, Tom clearly kisses Hannah on the mouth, while they always kiss on the cheek.
Hannah, an art expert, pronounces Modigliani with a with a hard g. The g should be silent.

Continuity 

When Tom and his friend are looking in the window of the bridal shop, Tom sees his reflection in the window with the bridesmaid dress. In the window, Tom's arms and neck are bare. However, he is wearing a polo shirt with long sleeves.
In one scene, the car behind Tom changes from a white police car to a yellow cab to a van.

In the locker room, Tom is seated on a bench with shaving gel and deodorant next to him. In the first shot, the deodorant is laying on its side, to the right of the shaving gel. In the next shot, the deodorant is standing straight up, to the left of the shaving gel.

When Hannah has just arrived back from Scotland, Tom decides to buy a very small bouquet of yellow flowers with netting. Then in the next scene, the flowers have changed and the netting is gone. Then in the next scene his flowers are the same as the scene before, but now the netting is back.

Errors in geography 

The Kyle Rhea ferry goes from Isle of Skye to the Scottish mainland near Glenelg. The only other ways to the mainland are the Kyle bridge at Kyle of Lochalsh, or via the Mallaig ferry near Armadale, both days away by horse. Tom crosses in a few minutes overland on his horse, which is impossible without going for a swim.
A few seconds after the the bridesmaids walk into the lobby through the revolving door, a double-decker bus passes on the street outside the double doors. There are no double-decker buses in New York.
When Tom calls Hannah, it's 3:00 am in Scotland. With the 5-hour time difference, it should be 10:00 pm in New York, yet daylight is shining through Tom's window.

Factual errors 

In the beginning of the movie at the airport, several announcements identify the flight to London Heathrow as a British Airways flight. However, the check-in desks and 747 plane show the Virgin Atlantic logo, and the flight attendants on the plane wear the bright red Virgin Atlantic uniform.

Revealing mistakes 

When Colin and Tom are playing basketball, Colin appears to jump off a trampoline to make the slam dunk. He lifts his legs to jump, bounces, then jumps higher to reach the basket.
In the locker room scene after the basketball game with Colin, as one of the men going into the shower removes his towel, the waistband of his boxer shorts is briefly visible.

As the Range Rovers pull up to the summer castle when the bridesmaids first arrive in Scotland, they are not on the driveway. They drive off the lawn, possibly to help get a better angle on the shot.
