Ok so my fiancé and I have thrown this wedding together in about a month and still getting all the details down….almost all of our close friends and family know we are getting married July 13th but I am still at a loss as to how I should word our actual invites…we are doing it out of state and pretty much know who is coming anyways but as a courtesy want to send invitations to people. As it is so close to the date does anyone know how I could maybe word it so people will understand that they aren’t obligated to come but that they weren’t forgotten?!?!

@LAndrews: I would definitely go with your vision of what you want your invitations to be. However, also something you can have printed and addressed ASAP. I might then include a small card saying thank you to your guests for being flexible with your quick planning (which, I am incredibly impressed with BTW!!). Maybe something like this:
“As you know we have been busily planning and preparing for our wedding on July 13th. We would like to say THANK YOU to all of you who have been so supportive of us in our decision to get married! Thank you for understanding the short notice, and sincerely appreciate all of your warm thoughts and wishes!”
ooor something? lol – you could even put this on a wedding website – OH have you thought about an ONLINE invite? With online RSVPs? That might go better with your time frame!

I’m impressed that you’ve planned your wedding in a month! I would suggest the following options for invitations:
- Paperless Post – email invitations that “open up” like regular mail.
- Minted.com – Lots of designs and you can customize any of the wording. They got me my save-the-dates 1 day after I approved the proof.
- Michaels invitation kit that you can print yourself.
- Use one of the free designs at Wedding Chicks and print it yourself or have it done at a local printer.
