@Audrey2:  I’m jealous!  My fiance still hasn’t even got me his list yet and we haven’t ordered them (since I don’t know how many I will need!)

@Audrey2:  Yay!!! Mine went out about 4 months ago so people would get a heads up and start booking accomodations (they are verrrry limited unless people want to bring a tent haha). So far we have heard of quite a few people booking!

I think the fiancee and I will be designing wedding invites soon. So we will see how that goes. Most likely it will be my maid of honour and I doing then and showing him to see what he thinks. He will say yeah those are great and then we will print them haha :p.

Wow! That’s early. I’m not sending mine out until October, maybe November.

I’m hoping to order ours next week! Did you ladies order them online, and if so, would you mind   telling me who you used? I had planned on using Vista Print, but I love a few on Zazzle, Minted, and Wedding Paper Divas!

We’ve just got ours through the post this week, hoping to get them sent out soon.  We’ve also gone for cheaper save the dates in the hopes of having fancier invites later on! We used a design off Vistaprint anduploaded a photo. It was one that we had taken of us on holiday 2 years ago, and I edited it on an app on my phone haha! I LOVE the way they came out!

Gah now I feel way behind! What do you think bees, before christmas or directly after christmas? (date is july 5, 2014 and about half the guests will be travelling but are all on the same continent)

Either way I need to start buying supplies now!

@hedgehogcatcher:  Hello Date Twin! I just sent mine out for July 5 (partly because it’s a holiday weekend (are you in the US?) and partly because I got excited and wanted to send them). 

I would send them out after Christmas since people are so busy/traveling around Christmas time. Early January would be nice!

@Audrey2:  Wow!  You were on top of it!  I just got mine out 2 days ago and even then my parents tried to tell me it was too early and I should wait.  But I didn’t want to wait another month and risk them getting set aside with holiday cards and whatnot.  Oh well, people have gotten them and they’ve been a hit!  Excited that first step is done!

@Soon2BeMrsS:  Ahh this makes me feel better! Our engagement photos have been c ancelled four times so far because of rain and now they’re being cancelled for Sunday because of freezing rain/snow. I could scream! I haven’t freaked out yet but we’re waiting on the photos for STDs and now I feel so far behind. =(

@CharleighT:  Oh, yeah.  🙁  That’s a bummer.  We haven’t gotten our engagement photos yet either (scheduled for 12/28) since FI has been stationed in another state since we got engaged.  I wanted to use them on STDs as well but had to come up with another plan if I wanted to get the STD out when I did – most of his list is OOT so I wanted to give them all plenty of notice.  We HAVE to get our photos next weekend regardless of weather since he’s only home for 10 days and then that’s it before the wedding.  Snow would make for awesome photos tho!!  I’m almost hoping it snows here for ours.  

And you shouldn’t feel far behind.  The guide I’ve been using for the timing of projects/vendors says 6-8 months in advance for STDs, IF you’re using them.  They’re not even required, just a courtesy.  Good luck!
