(Closed) Can I mail out my wedding invitations already!?!

  • poll: Should I send my wedding invites out tomorrow (wedding is 10-20-12)

    Noooo, hold your pants on and send them on Monday.

    Yes, you're neurotic - send them out for your own sanity.

    Either day is fine because they're obscenely close together.

    Send them! I am October 27th and mine are already out (but in my defense, it is because my wedding is a destination for everyone even though still in the continental U.S.) ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you’re sending them any distance (cross-country or international), it might take them the six days to arrive anyhow.

    Date twin! Send them out if you wish! We sent ours out early, and at this point you are just days away. So fun to have the RSVPs rolling in…Smile

    I’m almost the same day as you, and I sent ours out on Monday, for the same reason as Cheesy Potatoes said! Plus we did not do STDs, so we figured better give everyone a few extra days. No one’s really counting the exact weeks anyways, and they all know it’s about two months away, so you’re totally safe. The faster you send them out, the sooner you’ll start getting replies and then you can concentrate on fun stuff like the seating chart! (yay?)

    We sent ours out the beginning of Aug, Sep1 rsvp. Lots and lots of Out of Town guests so I figured local folks wouldn’t mind getting RSVP’s early. Especially since we have a short engagement (7mos) and didn’t send out STD’s

    My cousin sent her’s out 2 months ago even though we all told her not to. She’s getting married in December. I think a few days early isn’t that big of deal.

    I’m getting married the week befoe you, and I mailed mine out weeks ago.

    I wanted to give our out of town guests plenty of time to make plans, and there was just no way I was waiting until 8 weeks to the event! I mean, what’s the drawback of sending them a little sooner than the traditional ettiquette?
