In addition to planning my own wedding I am a bridesmaid for my close friend who is getting married in September of this year. I am about to order her shower invitations from wedding paper divas and was looking for shipping advice.
Has anyone used them? How long did it take to receive the invitations using standard shipping? I ask because they have a free shipping promotion going on, but it only applies to standard shipping.
Thanks in advance! Any additional advice greatly appreciated.

How soon do you need them? I’d call and see what their production timeline is. They should be able to give you an ETA. My guess is they ground ship – which usually takes 3-7 business days, depending on how far you are from their plant.

I am in the same state at WPD so I would get them in less than 5 business days from start to finish, assuming I approved the proofs the same day as they arrived in my email inbox. They’re actually quite speedy and would often get things to me a day earlier than the shipping notice indicated. Their online live chat is super friendly and helpful. They can probably give you a good idea. FWIW, we didn’t do any custom colors. For me, I’m pretty sure they used USPS Priority, which is the fastest for me (aside from FedEx 2-day). UPS Ground in my experience is the slowest of all shipping options from any retailers. If they use UPS Ground for you, it could be like up to 7 business days in my experience, if travelling cross-country.

We ordered our save the dates an rehearsal dinner invites from Wedding Paper Divas and everything was very fast…we received the proof the next day and (via email) and our rehearsal invites took about two days to arrive, and the save the dates maybe took five. We definitely used standard shipping.

I just ordered some address labels from them with the fastest shipping they had (I think it’s 4-day turnaround). It was estimated they would arrive by Monday 7/9, but they were delivered today (7/6).

Yeah, I just found out that they ship from NC and TN and I live in Arlington, VA so relatively close. The shower is small and we are spreading by word of mouth as well as the invite, so I think I could go with standard shipping.

I used WPD for ALL of my stuff (shower, rehearsal, std’s, wedding invites) and I NEVER used anything other than standard shipping. My stuff came in between 1-2 weeks (depending on what I ordered) Shower invites will be fast. I do believe that you can get free shipping by using the code: FSALL
If you haven’t ordered yet – use WPD0812 for an additional 10% off!

@MsMindle: Wow, thanks for the extra code!
Does using custom colors slow things down?
