    I’d put the friends house and then if you do move in to the townhouse just have the USPS forward your mail to the new address.

    PO Box is never a bad thing while renting! Especially with all of your variables 🙂

    don’t use an address you don’t have yet, that would be risky in my opinion if it didn’t work out.  If your friend doesn’t mind, I’d say use his address if you know you’ll be there when the RSVPs start coming in, and then forward the rest once you move.  If you know you’ll be moved by the time the invites go out, I’d say get a P.O. box or just opt out of having the return address printed.  I’m sure that’s an option.

    I can’t vote for 2, so I’ll say friends house OR p.o. box. Probably depends on how close to this friend you are/how willing they are to collect your mail for 2 months!

    Id just wait to order them… it’s just another month? How long would it take the invitations to come in?

    We moved in the midst of our planning.  I ordered the invites in January, moved beginning of February, mailed them mid-February.  What we ended up doing was putting my parents’ address even though they don’t live near me.  Every day my mom would call me up and tell me whose rsvps she had gotten!  It was nice to just not have to worry about it.  Then, she ended up wrapping them up and leaving them with our wedding gifts at the reception.  It was such a nice surprise when we were opening our gifts post-honeymoon to get to read what notes people had written!

    @KateByDesign:could you have them just sent to your friends house, and then stop by to pick them up once a week (so she doesn’t have to bother with keeping track of who is coming or anything)

    I would just use a friends address. i dont think that you have the time to hold off on ordering without causing yourself some major stress. You never know what could happen between now and July.

    The other option is to have them printed the way that you want them, and if something changes get a label to go over it.  Or you could ask for the RSVP address not to be printed and do it yourself. Can you order the invitations and let them know that you will have to delay the rsvp address? More than likely they print those last anyways.

    we ended up moving cities right before our rsvp deadline, and what we did worked out fine–we aked the post office to hold all our mail for a couple weeks before forwarding it (there are forms online to request that), and then went to the post office to pick it up. it was easy.

    if i were you i’d wait a bit to lock down the townhouse, but then if it’s really pushing it and you’re getting nervous, i’d have them sent to your friends’ house, and then either pick them up there or do some mail forwarding/holding if the friend doesn’t want them to come there

    ETA: what if you had them sent to your or your fh’s work address? would that be okay?

    I would do a friend or family member’s house. That way you know that they are going to be there they arent moving etc. and its someone you know.

    I would definitely not use the potential new address.  Is it possibly to order your invitations without a return address and then print them on yourself once they come in?  By that point you should be moved into the new place.  

    If that’s not an option, I would either get a PO box or do as PP suggested and have them sent to your  parents.  As she said, even if they don’t live close by, they can still call/text you each day with whose RSVP came in. Just because their can be a lot, I personally wouldn’t want to hassle my friend to keep ahold of them and I do NOT trust the USPS forwarding mail.  I’ve had things take months to get forwarded before. 🙁
