March 22, 2013 here!! I just got the email that my invites have been shipped! Wahoo!! Should get them in 2-3 days and I will hopefully be sending them out Monday or Tuesday next week…

Our RSVP deadline is one month prior on Feb 22. (Based on my shower invites it will be quite a few late responses…so I wanted to give some extra time) 

Can’t wait to see them from Etsy and get them weighed for postage!

 

Good luck Laughing

I’m desiging and making mine with my mom, so we’re not ready yet! I’m hoping to send them by the end of the month. We have to get them assembled and ready before she goes back to teaching.

Glad to read most of us are in the same boat. Our date is 3/2, and I designed the invites myself and bought all the pieces from Cards & Pockets. I hope to drop them off at the post office first thing next week. The actual invites and inserts are being printed tomorrow and should be done Friday. Friday and Saturday I have my assembly and addressing work cut out for me. YIKES! The RSVP date is 1/22.

 

Edited because there were some spelling issues…darn iPad keyboard.

I just mailed mine on Monday (New Years Eve).  I didn’t realize how real the wedding now feels now that the invites are officially out.  A lot of my friends have already received them and have been complementing on how they look.

@abbie017:  They need the final numbers a few days beforehand (but I intend to give it to them 1-2 weeks before).

@Lady_Sparkles:  We did the same! Hoping for the best but will contact people if it gets too close to the date!

Posting ours on Monday, fingers crossed as we have a gift registry and hopefully people will benefit from the sales if they so choose!

Just put my final batch in the mail this morning. And I just read my previous post here and I said the RSVP date is 1/22 but it’s not at all. Lol. It’s 1/31. I must be losing it.

 

I’m glad I wait to mail them until the last minute (or should I say, was forced to wait to mail them until the last minute) because I didn’t want to give people two large of a window to reply. If you give people too much time, they forget…which is exactly what I do myself. So yeah, I wanted to avoid people like me. Hahaha.

we sent ours around new year’s (wedding is March 10).

I’ve got a couple of responses so far. and already one older relative who rang my parents and said ‘you’ll have to RSVP for me because I don’t know how to use these wedding website things and they didn’t include an RSVP card to post’. sigh. type in the website address. click ‘RSVP’. type in your name. done….

and the reason we didn’t include an option to respond by post is because my FI and I live overseas and my parents are moving house (and don’t know their new address yet). also, it’s 2013. I don’t mind people ringing my parents to respond or emailing us but yeah I figured we’d have a few comments from the old folk about the website. they all thought the concept of ‘Save the Date’ was ridiculous, even though they’re the ones who were asking when the wedding is from the minute we got engaged! they’re also the ones who are always complaining that nobody uses mail anymore!
