Sooo…. I’ve kind of known which invites since I saw them while helping out a friend as a bridesmaid, before I got engaged. My FI loves them too, we have our date and time and venue set, we’ve ordered samples and know that they’re what we want, so on and so forth.
Our wedding isn’t until October, and I’d planned on ordering them in late spring/early summer or sometime around then, but I just got a great 10% off email coupon from them that’s good through Tuesday.
Aaaah!!! I want to get 10% off soooo bad! Is it crazy to go ahead and order them?
They’re from Minted — anybody know if Minted has regular wedding stationery sales like this one?
Someone talk me down from the pretty pretty invite ledge before I plunge 😛

they have sales all the time! I am getting mine through there too and I am always getting ten and sometimes 20% off coupons! I think you are safe to wait!

Also, I just ordered samples and on the back of them, they have a coupon.. so if you arent seeing any later in the game you could always order another sample and use that one!

If you know that’s what you want then why wait?.. lol
I got what I could as soon as I knew I was set… then I didn’t have to worrry about something coming up in budget later that would push back getting something.
I say go for it =)

I’m a Dec. 2011 Bride and bought my invites already, couple months ago! lol But thats because I planned to do DIY pocketfolds and found some AWESOME printables from Michaels and used 40% & 20%extra off coupons and got my 3 sets of 30 invites for $50 bucks!
Going to upgrade them with colored envelopes and (maybe?) ribbon!

We have our designer working on ours and are almost done with wording and times. I would say go ahead and order them. Why not?! 🙂

Its never too early to order invites the sooner the better really but you also have time to wait for an even better sale!

It’s never too early, but the next sale could be even better. You might end up changing your mind and see something else you like. I know I did. The first thing I picked out were my invitations and thought they were just so perfect, but later found some that I loved on Etsy and went with those. Good luck!!!
