Did you order extra invitations for last minute guests? I have my guest list, but I have the feeling that the second I order invitations, my mom will call and say “Oh, don’t forget about so and so I just ran into her at the supermarket and mentioned the wedding.” But at $3 or $4 a piece, I don’t want to spend the money on extras! Can you invite last-minute people sans paper invite?

We had to order our invitations in increments of 25, so we do have some extras. I would suggest getting a few extras for keepsakes and in case any out of town guests arise, or you have any invitations get lost in the mail. At the very least, order extra envelopes for addressing mistakes.

We ordered 10 over. I’m glad we did because some of our guests never received the first one we mailed, and one was eaten by the Post office machine. Also, you will want to mail one to your photographer so they can photo it for your album. And you’ll want to keep one for yourself for your keepsake collection.

Maybe you could just do some premade ones from Michael’s you can run through the printer – I know they wouldn’t be as nice but in a pinch.
I’m making ours and when I started we needed 54 now we need 62, luckily I bought enough supplies for 70 – plus I wanted to keep one or two to put with wedding pics in a scrapbook.

I would definitely order extra. You never know.
You might misaddress one, one might get lost in the mail. Those phantom last minute guests! 🙂
It’ll be easier for them just to create a couple extra now than later.
