If contracts are signed id say go for it! Invites are expensive – I’d definitely take advantage of the sale. I ordered our menus a month ago because there was a 40% off sale… And I’m still 6 months out!

I’ve already changed the start time of my ceremony and some of the logistics and my wedding is just under a year away.  The reason for my change of time was trying to give myself more time for photos.  If you already have your timeline for the day of and it seems pretty solid, you could order, but just beware that you may want to change things up between then and now.  I thought my original timeline was perfect and didn’t think there was any chance of me changing it…

@kansas_nurse:  Go for it!  I got all my invite supplies and had them designed before even ordering STDs.  I’m making everything and I wanted to place one large bulk paper order to save on shipping costs.  My family thought I was nuts, too, but if it takes crazy to save money – I’m game.

Im an Oct 2014 bride and might do this too!! I have 40% off towards the letterpress invites I want, so I might just say hell with it and do it!

@kansas_nurse:  Hey date twin!

I say go for it!  Our invites are currently in the “design” phase, as they’re being gifted to us by a friend who’s a graphic designer.

Save that money!

Mine were ordered about 8 months ahead of time because I couldn’t pass up a good sale. I think as long as you’re confident that timing and details won’t change it should be fine
