Default Opinions wanted on recipe mistake

The recipe is:
3lbs Briess Bavarian Wheat DME
3lbs Briess Munich LME
1lb Briess Pilsen DME
1oz. Northern Brewer for 50 minutes

One beer will use Wyeast 2112 Cal Lager yeast and the other will use 1338 European Ale yeast.

The original recipe, which I've used and like, was from the Briess website and uses 3lb of Pilsen DME instead of the Bavarian Wheat DME and 3/4oz Perle. I occidentally bought two 3lb bags of the Bavarian instead of Pilsen (they really look alike) and didn't realize it until both kettles were boiling.

Any thoughts of what I might expect from this mistake of a recipe?
