- Wedding: June 2008
Okay I am soo upset and so disappointed. I have worked soo hard on getting the perfect invites, I made so many mocks and worked for weeks on it, planning to send them out 8 weeks before the wedding because we have so many out-of-town people.
Well when I ordered the paper folds, I was told it’d take 3-5 days to ship, so I’d set aside the next weekend to work solely on the invites. Well the weekend past and no invites. I find out they backordered them and never told me. Figures. So I get them a week later. Then we did all the embossing, the lace all the accessories etc, and started printing the invite to go on the inside, turns out home printers don’t like textured paper. Well we finished printing all the invite portions after a couple hours, but then we had to give up with the inserts (it’s a pocket, so we’re having three inserts; rsvp, reception and accommodations).
So my mom suggested just taking them to the local printers, who she has worked with before and loved, and offered to pay. Well their prices were great, $8 per 50 inserts, since we’re sending out 50 invites, it worked out great.
So they tell us they’d be done by Tuesday, wednesday at the latest. I was a little peeved, because that meant just a little over 7 weeks to the wedding, but beggars can’t be choosers. That was supposed to be last Wednesday. No call, no email with the proofs, nothing.
I finally call on Friday and the guy working had no clue what I was talking about, had no knowledge of my order. Great. So he tried to track down the guy I was working with, but of course, he doesn’t work Fridays.
So I finally get a call from him today, saying that he got the dates mixed up, he was super sorry, he put down to have them done for me TOMORROW, not last Tuesday etc etc. He offered a discount, which I appreciate, and is printing them now.
On top of that he forgot all the measurements, and I had to remind him twice.
On my RSVP card it said, RSVP by April 29. Book your hotel by April 28.
Yeah, that’s NEXT WEEK. There is no way our out-of-state guests will be able to do that. It’s less than 6 weeks to the wedding, and will be five weeks by the time our guests get the invites.
I feel so disorganized, and inconsiderate doing this to our guests.
