What!?  They got rid of alchemy, that sucks.  Why are you sending them 3 months out?  Just curious.

I agree with YSQueen, no later than mid April.

by that account, does that mean I should be ordering my paper now?! I probably wasn’t going to do it until next month at the earliest…

are you ordering all of your stationary at the same time? if so, i’d think you’d need to do it ASAP if you’re doing STDs. if you are doing it in pieces, then you could wait a little while. we’re the week before your date, my aunt is drawing them and we will have them printed hopefully in april. i feel better if i know that should something go wrong we’ll have time to order new ones without problems. you may want to consider how long you want to give yourself to have the envelopes done (if you aren’t having them done or will have them done by someone after you receive your printed invites).

I am going to try and order ours this month because we are ordering from minted.com and get 10% off in Feb. We are only ordering 25, so it makes sense for us (not making them ourselves). They have some great designs so it may work for you too. The only thing I am DIYing is our map. I’ll get those printed at some later date (hopefully when I find another discount!).

If you’re sure your key details won’t change, no real reason to wait.  You probably want to order them at least 1-2 months before you plan to send, (a) in case there are mistakes and you have to re-order, and (b) to allow yourself plenty of time to stuff, address, and stamp.  I had a small wedding – we sent out about 60 invites – and I was totally shocked at how time consuming prepping the invitations was.  And we ordered them from wedding paper divas, it’s not even like I was making anything.  My advice- allow yourself lots of time for getting them ready to send. 

And – another great bride trick – number the back of your response cards in case you get anybody sending it back forgetting to write in their name.  (Keep track of each guest’s “number” on your guest list spreadsheet)
