@icanhearyousmile:  oh the horror.

I had this problem…So BEFORE mailing them, I went to the PO and asked the woman to make sure I had enough postage on them. She said yes, so I mailed them.

A few days go by and we got back 15 invitations that required more postage. Needless to say, they were bent out of shape, the envelope was ripped. Thank goodness I had some extra invitations. Some just didn’t make it to their destination! jerks.

Moral of my story, the PO sucks. BIG TIME. Not only that, but they are stupid too for telling me that I had enough postage.

@icanhearyousmile:  I wouldnt worry about it then. Our invitations were pocket invitations,  and in them were the actual invite, rsvp card and the rsvp envelope and directions.

 

I am just upset that I knew I was right and needed more postage but believed the woman who weighed my invites. Lol

 

you will be fine!

@icanhearyousmile:  I’m confused.  didn’t you just mail out your invites this week?  so your rsvp deadline is nowhere near overdue, right?  a lot of ppl don’t check the mail everyday and, even if they did and got the invite, there’s nothing saying ppl must rsvp immediately.  have a little patience and cut ppl some slack.  rsvping by or on the deadline is not technically late.

also, since you want rsvps right away online, you will increase your chance of that happening significantly if you email out a link to your website to all invited guests, especially to your rsvp page.  so instead of getting the paper, reading it, needing to remember to rsvp, and having to get the paper invite to type in your website on their computer or phone, the email will remind them and they can just click on the link.  

We mailed out our save the dates about 6 weeks ago and emailed out links to our website and over 20% of our guests have already responded (before invites have even been mailed out)
