What we did is we waited until all the invitations were ready to be mailed. Then we went to the post office and put them into the drop off mailbox directly outside the post office.

I’m pretty sure it doesn’t matter, but I’ll be bringing ours to the post office so they don’t sit for a few hours (or maybe days if we drop them on the weekend) where they could possibly get wet if it starts raining and that box is damaged and I don’t know it. By bringing them directly to the post office I’m guaranteeing they are put in the box to send to the processing centre.

I just sent out 200 christmas cards and put them in the box. never had a problem in 10 years.
You might want to go and check to make sure you have the right amount of postage if you have heavy invites, but other than that, you should be fine.

Id actually suggest you jJust take them to the post office and hand them to a person at the counter so they can hand cancel the postage rather than put them through a machine to avoid bending or ink going through.

when I sent Save-The-Date Cards I handed them to the postal worker because I didn’t want to fill up the bin at the post office at work (they only have bins behind the slots not mailboxes).  But really – they’re use to it!

You only have to take them into the post office if you arent sure how much they weigh or if you have too many to fit into the mail box.

I just dumped 100 thank you cards in the mailbox with no issues.

However, I used to work beside the post office, so I took my invitations straight in there.
