@codysgirl16:  

invitations, depending where you order them from, could take a few weeks.  i designed mine and printed through vistaprint, took less than 2 weeks to get.

officiant: what kind of ceremony do you want? religious or civil? have you been to any weddings recently that you liked the officiant?

@codysgirl16:  As PP mentinoed, Vistaprint is pretty affordable and quick.  I did ours through Zazzle and I literally had them in less than a week (also afforadable!)

  • sent 80% of my save the dates
  • Guest list (mostly) drafted
  • Invitations mostly ordered (just finalizing wording, guaranteed 1 month delivery date)

Also, don’t know if this is tacky but…

could your groomsmen pitch in and come over for a house-painting or re-sodding “party”??

My fiance LOVES helping friends with home improvement projects, we don’t have our own home so he lives vicariously through them… just a thought to help get things done
