I was wondering if anyone has ordered their invitations or other paper products for their wedding from wedding paper divas? I ordered a sample of a specific invitiation and it said 10-15 business days to get it. That’s 3 weeks. Then i got another email that it was going to be delayed at least another week. If the proof takes a month to get here and it takes another month to get the invitations printed and shipped, I’m not going to get the invited until a month before my wedding… I don’t think I can go with them if they are so slow and unresponsive when I also emailed them 2 times about it – nothing!
What is your experience? What other options have people used for cost-effective inivtations online or otherwise.

Hmm. That’s unusual. I had all good experiences with wpd, and I dealt with themb a few times. My shipping was always quick and on time.

@ktodd9: I had a wonderful experience with Wedding Paper Divas. So sorry to hear that your experience is not so positive.
My husband and I ordered our wedding invitations from them in late Spring 2013, and the turn around time was approximately two weeks. My invitations came in a nice box and were FedEx’d to my house. It sounds like this is cutting it really close for ordering your invitations from them. I would look into a local printer, that way you can get your product much sooner from proofing and know that you don’t have to wait for it to be shipped.

@ktodd9: I don’t know if they were having production and delivery probelms due to the weather, but I had a similar WPD delay with my invitation proofs. I ordered the proofs around January 16th, and was told they would be delayed. I placed a separate expedited Save the Date a few days later and they are both scheduled to arrive on January 27th. I can update if they actually come!
If you like what you see when you get the proofs, it may be worth paying to expedite them?
As for other vendors, I originally ordered STD cards from zazzle.com, and the alignment was really off, so I am getting a refund (well, supposedly!). I also ordered invitation proofs from minted.com, but they seem more expensive than WPD. I may pay more though if things arrive when they are supposed to.

Is your wedding really 8/30/14? I’m confused how 8 weeks out (for both sample and final product) is one month before your wedding, beacause they would be arriving no later than end of March.

I haven’t had any major issues but if you call they have really good customer service and I am sure they can help you out.

I ordered my Save the Dates through them and got them within 1.5 weeks.

i got my STD and invites from WPD around two years ago and didn’t have any delivery problems, the proofs etc were right on time.

I ordered my STD’s through them and they were AMAZING to work with. I would recommend them a thousand times over.
They shorted me 2 STD’s (I ordered 80 and recieved 78) and they OVERNIGHTED me 10 extra! FOR FREE!
I was seriously seriously impressed. I wish I could have used them for many more things, but they are a little expensive. I was in love with our Save the Date’s though.

We did our Save-The-Date Cards with Wedding Paper Divas and it was a very positive experience. Great customer service, fast delivery and a beautiful end result. I’m very surprised to hear that you’ve experienced so many problems with them. If you do feel like switching to another company I would recommend Cards & Pockets, we used them for our invitations and they were exceptional.

@ktodd9: I didn’t get our invitations there…but I did get our Save-The-Date Cards there and we didn’t have any issues and got the order in pretty fast

I’ve heard lots of bad things about wedding paper divas!!! I can only reccomend zazzle.com….the invites are fantastic, (I know because I make some of them), and the quality is impeccable. They have sales pretty frequently, but their prices are very reasonable!

I also have had nothing but good experiances from Wedding Paper Divas… so this seems odd to me.

I just ordered my STD dates off WPD. I have had no issues as of yet. The digital proof came in quickly. and so did the tracking number.
Aparently they are going to be here in two days.
I aso ordered sample invites from them, those cam in about 1.5 weeks. Again no issues.
