  • Wedding: June 2009

We sent ours out just before the July 4th holiday. We both work from home and my ears are on red alert for the mailman:) He is my new favorite person. Each day 4 or 5 trickle in and it’s so much fun. We play guessing games on whether it’s a yes or a no, or who we think it’s from! It’s been a lot of fun getting them back.

I’m using a recipe box with dividers to keep them sorted in Yes and No and by hotel (we are having wedding shuttles to and from two hotels). I’m also making a small Post-it note of each couple’s name when they come in because I saw this fantastic idea for seating arrangements in one of my bride magazines.

Using paper plates (to represent the tables) and small post-it notes(with guest’s names written on them) is a low tech, free way to figure out the seating plan. You just move the Post-its from plate to plate until you find a configuration that works!

I figure if I make the post-it notes as they replies come in I won’t have to do all that work in one shot when it’s time to do the tables!

Have fun ripping envelopes open!

I sent mine 4 months before the wedding I have too many OOTers; eveyone said yes except one friend (who got offended because I didn’t send it out the same time I was still thinking because she’s always so iffy and she got offended)

 

I now have 5 more people I am waiting for and the wedding is 2 months away; I had a 99% yes rate so far which is good and bad

 

 

good-it means everyone we invited wants to celebrate with us, bad because I could save money if they say no

 

at least I dont have to call too many people up so close to the date

We sent ours last Wednesday.  However, we boxed them up and sent them to the Bridal Veil, OR Post Office, where they will get a cool postmark and then be sent from there.  Thus, they have not actually reached any of our guests yet.  Needless to say, I’m impatient for the RSVPs to start coming in.

Ours went in the mail box yesterday. I’ve already got 3 RSVP’s back from my Mum, grandparents (even though they don’t have a choice, they had to come lol) and my boss. I think getting the RSVP’s back is the best part of invitations.

Wow! I don’t feel so bad now! I thought i was breaching etiquette since i’m sending it out more than three months early but I have so many fr. out of country to invite that i thought, screw it, I’m getting them out now! so hopefully the first batch will go out this week (the ones fr. out of the country) and in two weeks I’m sending out for the one’s in the US.

Oh wow! You ladies are impressive. I have to address all mine still and am hoping to do so in the next 3 weeks. All the work will be worth it once those RSVP cards start rolling in.

We have not sent ours out yet, were waiting until August to do so. Almost everyone we are inviting already knows about the wedding though-from our Save the Dates and because they live here & one of us sees a majority of the guests on a daily basis.

I’m waiting until mid to late August to send mine out. My wedding is the last day in October so that will be about 8-10 weeks before the wedding, which I think is plenty. We sent out save the dates back in January so everyone knows about the date already. We have about 75% of the guest list being out-of-towners but.. they all know the date and most have made plane and hotel reservations already. Our RSVP date is October 3rd so maybe I’ll send them out mid-August to make sure people have plenty of time to RSVP.

As soon as we can get them. We are having trouble in the proof process. Our RSVP date is OCtober 1st.  Our big problem is one of our room blocks expires August 31st and can’t be extended.
