@yellowshoe: Yay!! I was having anxiety because it was starting to rain when I was pulling into the post office. I took off my sweater and put it over top of my invites so they wouldnt get wet. The looks that I got for doing this.

My friend is having a Dec 17 2011 wedding, and she sent the invite at the end of August with an RSVP date of Nov 1!

I already sent my yes RSVP back since I can tell she is so anxious 🙂

@Garnety: you just gave me a mini panic attack!! lol

If it were up to me I would’ve sent them after Labor Day….buuuut I had a friendor “help” us with the invitations (there’s a rant/vent of that floating around some where on these baords…) so let’s just say I’m thrilled to have them in the mail today. I can’t wait to start getting the RSVPs back! 😀

@RSgrl1215: OMG I had a nightmare last night that it rained and I got all the invites wet!!! This is too funny. I should go hire an armed brinks truck to help me transport these invites safely to the post office Wink

Getting married on December 10, with a response deadline of November 19 (3 weeks). In regards to sending them out? My fiance wants them OUT THE DOOR, he is sick of looking at them. lol We have been working on the invitations pretty much since we got engaged and now that they are done, he wants to make sure they go out before there might be a fire. haha. But I think I’ll be mailing them on October 1, that gives people 7 weeks to reply.

men…  🙂

@RSgrl1215! Must feel so great! 

As for me, I have pretty much finished printing enough main invitations for everyone. Made all my “Pocket Panels” (50); only a few more personalized RSVPs left to do (just verifying some names/couplings). 

Still need to finalize our “Directions” and map card. Going to hopefully get some wording help from some coordinators from the venue tomorrow at our tasting. Or at least take notes on the drive there. Still need to do a few accomodation cards for our few OOTs. What do you really provide on this? Our wedding isn’t large enough to need to block out rooms or anything, so do I just suggest like 3 local nice hotels and their information or any perks relating to our venue they might provide? I just dont know what people expect…havent they heard of Google, Priceline, Expedia…lol. Ok I’m being a brat. And last but not least, printing envelopes both RSVP and Outter. My goal is to get them out sooner than my anticipated Mid-October goal since Mother-In-Law is supposedly getting questions and concerns! 

Hope your ladies Invitation Adventures are going well and your having fun!

Ours went out yesterday!  I got to hand cancel them all myself, which I found very satisfying. The postal workers thought I was hilarious since Fiance photographed us handing over the box of invites, but they were really nice.  And now they’re off!

Just thought I’d share with everyone my invitation snafu to provide you with a good laugh: last night when I was assembling, I accidentally sealed the RSVP envelopes with the response cards enclosed…it was late, and I looked at the box of response cards and was wondering why I had left them open, so I sealed them. Silly me!

Twelve finished invitations later….I had to rip apart those envelopes and start them from scratch. No harm done. Bride brain didn’t get the best of me, but it did crack me up that a control freak like myself could have managed to screw up her own invitations the way I did.

@blueroses: LOL I did something similar. I was in charge of putting the postage on the RSVP cards, then put the cards in the pocketfold, then all of it into the envelope seal it and be done. Well….I did everything, but step 1. Luckily I noticed after the first 2 that I had a ton of extra postage and didn’t know why! I was able to carefully pry open the envelopes and put the postage on, but those 2 were my FI’s bosses. He was like “i leave you unsupervised for 5 minutes and you screw up the 2 important ones…” lol. OOPS!

Today!!  Woo Hoo!!  Mailman already picked them up!  We put a November 5 RSVP deadline (which is kinda early).  Although, it’s a semi-destination so they either have a hotel/flight reservation or not.  lol – They can’t wake up the morning of and decide to go…
