@JacobsMama:  We sent out ours early September with Nov 3rd deadline.  40 people out of 55 replied so far!

Wow, you ladies are early! I just finished assembling them all today. I will send them out at the end of October, with an RSVP deadline of December 14th.

They say that you should mail out invitations 6 to 8 weeks prior to the wedding, so I am not mailing mine until the last week of November

@FutureMrsJohnston:  Date twin!  I am mailing mine out November 20th, so (most) people get them the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  Our STDs went out at end of August.  However, we are only inviting 36 of our closest friends/family, so I will probably won’t have to hunt down many RSVPs.

@MissMiaMarch:  Yay thats awesome!  You probably have the right idea sending them out November 20th since people start sending Christmas cards/gifts in the mail soon after. I think I might do the same thing

@FutureMrsJohnston:  Now ask me if I ordered them yet… Wink

PS:  Mine are from Wedding Paper Divas and thankfully, they have great turnaround time!  Ordering them this weekend once I finalize one last thing with my menu.

@MissMiaMarch:  Oh you will get them super fast, I ordered my STD’s from them and I had them within a week.  Now, my problem is that I havent decided on my menu at all!  lol

@JacobsMama:  Sent mine out on October 18th with a December 18th deadline.  Hopefully it works out ok with RSVPs and the holidays!

@JacobsMama:  We sent ours out over a month ago.  As it’s a destination wedding and the holidays are coming up, we wanted to give people extra notice.

@MissMiaMarch:  LOL you sound like me! I should have my sample in the mail on Monday and then it should be a quick turnaround from there.

I wanted to have everything tied up and out the door by the 1st but it’s not turning out that way..

@something_orange:  Just finished mine last night, but I’m paranoid about actually finalizing the order.  I keep worrying that I left something out or I have a typo somewhere!

My goal is to have them out by the end of next week. We didn’t do STD cards so hopefully that is early enough. Time is flying by so quickly I am getting so nervous I won’t get everything done, I’m such a procrastinator :/

@eLPeeseNanner:  Date Twin!! We did a STD, but we are sending ours out next week too, hopefully they will come in this week so I can get started on them. I cant believe how fast time is flying by!!! Every weekend in November I have a shower planned so there goes my time to get anything done on those days.
