Wow I wasn’t planning on sending mine out untl mid-April but it seems like the general consensus is to send them earlier. Maybe the first week of April.  I have a few left to address and assemble.  I am antsy to get them off my hands!!

@sunshinebee:  I’m on the same timeline as you 🙂 Our invites go out tomorrow, and our RSVP date is April 26th for a June 8th wedding.

As luck would have it, we’re attending a family get-together the day after the RSVP deadline, so anyone who I am missing, I’ll pull aside and ask them if it’s in the mail or/and if they are coming.

We’re planning to have the invites out by the end of March. I think I put the RSVP deadline as May 15th for our June 1st wedding. We’re having barbeque buffet catering so for them we can change everything up until the week of and they don’t care.

I’m a little bummed though because I had these really cute bookmark Save-The-Date Cards printed, but we had so much trouble getting addresses from family that it’s too late to send them. They were cheap but it’s still a waste.

Uh oh. I just realized that our invitations don’t have an RSVP date on them. It’s a simple paper invitation, requesting guests RSVP at our website… but there’s no date mentioned. 

Did I screw up? Dammmnnnn.

We are sending our invites out tomorrow!  🙂

RSVP date – April 20th

Wedding date – June 15th

Like some others said, we have a number of people who we were not able to invite in this first round of invitations (my fiancee’s family alone is 82 people) so we want to make sure we have time to invite a few of those people if possible.

@cali_cat:  I’ve never heard of anyone doing a tester invitation.  How did it turn out?

Ok girls, received the invites but the pocket fold is a problem. How am I going to seal them? they don’t open sideways they open longways! A  belly band would look strange seeing that the opening of the envelope is toward the top. BLAH!

@xdaydreams05x:  Turned out fine!  I had some loose bits inside the invitation and wanted to know what they would look like after going through the postal system. I also learned not to bother with pretty stamps because the invitation had huge black marks all over the stamps.  I had considered getting some with custom pictures but nobody would have been able to appreciate it!  I was concerned that my RSVP might not make it back in the mail because it was a shiny gold envelope with a white embossed address (a little hard to read in direct sunlight), but that came back without any issue too 😉
