I think you are fine on time.  It’s still 2 months away.

Invites should go out 6-8 weeks beforehand, so you are fine. In your position, I would try to wait and use the Etsy invites.

Whew this post made me feel better! Most of mine are out but we have a bunch we planned on hand delivering, yeah, right. undecided

So, now we’re going back and asking for everyones addresses, and my wedding is in June!

As long as people are aware of when your wedding is you will be fine!

Just direct people to your website when they ask. Nowadays paper invites are more just a formality anyway (except for elderly or non-internet savvy relatives who actually wait for them). Our wedding is in end of August and my friends have been bugging me about invites because they want to plan flights and I’m like chill guys, the website has everything you need (and the URL was listed on the STD) or just call me if you have questions lol. But yeah I’m already feeling the crunch too!

Another thing you can do is email everyone using Paperless Post or regular email with an Update saying “We are in the process of mailing or hand delivering your invitation this month, so keep a look out for that. We can’t wait to celebrate with you! Don’t forget to check our website for details in the meantime.”

A friend of mine has her wedding in June and just sent that out an e-blast like that last night.

My wedding is also May 5! We sent out ours about a week and a half ago and were scaring ourselves that we left it too late (we need to give venue final numbers and seating arrangements by April 17).

But really, we’ve given people just over a month to respond, and we did Save the Date’s, which means they’ve got heaps of time to figure it out so we were just frantic for no reason…. I would probably aim to get them out in the next couple of weeks and that should be plenty of time for guests to decide whether they can come or not, especially if you’ve already done Save the Date’s.

I got some of my wedding stationary printed right at Staples. is that an option for you? The quality isn’t as good as when I had them printed from cat print but it does the job. Have you reached out to the designer who is doing your invite? I would definitely push back since they said 2-4 days.
