- Wedding: October 2011
We’re not getting married til October, but we’ve already narrowed down our invite choices to one or two, both from Minted.com. I tried ordering samples of the ones we want to choose from, but we’ve already had trouble with the parcel being returned to sender (even though they only ship to physical street addresses, the package ended up at our post office, and they returned it). I’m trying to figure out what’s going on so that when we do order our for-real invites, they’ll actually make it to us!
Since we’ve been having trouble, I’m wondering how early I should place my order to work out any kinks that may come up. I know invites typically go out 8-6 weeks before the event, but how early do you normally order them? And how much more time should I allow for potential problems with the mail? Do any of you wonderful bees have any advice?
