@angelalsmith3:  Awww it’s going to be ok. I had 3 meltdowns this week, I know that feeling of being on the verge of tears!  It’s ok to wait an extra week to send out the invites, people aren’t going to RSVP anyway lol, even if you have then 4 months!! Today is my RSVP date and I am still out 30 RSVP’s. Yours will get there on time, and they’re going to be great! 🙂

@angelalsmith3:  haha. I have to laugh because I did the SAME EXACT THING. So frustrating. I made my invitations out of elephant poo paper, and I had to reprint all the RSVP cards.. again. My printer didn’t get along with the paper either. It was a longggg day! You’ll be alright. I pinky promise. Go do a shot of something yummy and dance around the living room. It’ll be fine 🙂

@angelalsmith3:  Exactly! It could be so much worse. Assemble the rest, and add the RSVPs last minute. No one will notice that they got their invites a few days or even a few weeks later than you intended. It will never matter in the long run! Especially with your bach party tonight.. you need to relax! Have fun and have a few extra drinks for me! (My BMs were buttheads and didn’t throw me a party, so I live vicariously through others :P)

@angelalsmith3:  If it makes you feel any better- the night FI and I placed the order online for our invites- we did several mock ups until we felt we got it right.

Right when we were ready to order- the website started acting wierd.  It was ONLY that website- the internet itself and any other site we tried was just fine.  Somehow- we ended up with Pewter ink instead of Black ink (thankfully, Pewter isn’t so bad)- and I think it was because the website was being all strange.  We DID do a mock up in Pewter, but it was the FIRST mock up of several we did- so there’s it’s strange it kept all the proper wording and alignament, but reverted back to Pewter for ink color.

 

But here’s the real kicker- we were so tired (and kinda frustrated) by the time we were ready to order- that we ordered 100 invitations.  100 invitation when really, we needed about 50.  Because we ordered one for EVERY guest, instead of one for each household/couple/etc….yeahhhhhhh so I have a nice pile of invites downstairs……and paid TWICE as much as we needed.  FI was right there with me when I ordered- so it’s not like I’m the only one who didn’t notice LOL

Although everyone had a blast at my wedding, I agree with your last sentence. 

The stress planning a wedding gives you is just not worth it in my opinion. 

I haven’t talked to a close friend (whose wedding I’m in) in weeks cuz she’s going insane planning. I keep telling her its not worth the aggravation. But she doesn’t listen. 

You’ll be okay.
