MissCountryGirl727: yeah, as I said, my best friend is designing them for me (always great to befriend a graphics designer lol) and we have to assemble them. I too feel like there is just way too much to do! I decided to hand make ALL the flowers…when I say hand make, I am including the flowers. They are beautiful, but I am sooo glad I only have 2 bouquets left! I can’t wait to post all the DIYs on here!
I’m definitley thinking that the beginning of August is best for the RSVPs.

I just ordered mine this weekend from Vistaprint. They should come in the next week or two. We need to buy a printer so we don’t have to hand write every envelope!

Futurefishy: When you get them from Vistaprint, can you post a picture of how they look? I was thinking about ordering something else from them and I was wondering about their quality

Im with @ihavethemusicinme:
Please post pics when you receive them. I just ordered a sample of 10 invites from them today to make sure they are exactly what I imagined. I uploaded my own design so fingers are crossed.

I am sending invitations early July. I have to have my final count to venue in by September 5, so I’m requesting RSVPs before August 30 (leaving some time to follow up).
How is everyone’s planning going? What’s left on the agendas for the next 3-4 months?

My Twin Dates are also on the same page! I sent out save the dates with my xmas cards actually (they were mini calendars). I’m actually starting the invitation process this weekend as I’m DIYing my invitations. My goal is to have them in the mail July 15 – I’m going to have a August 20th RSVP date as that’s the date hotel rooms go back to the general public and it gives me time for all my other DIY tasks! Can’t believe how close it is getting!!

Another 9/21 bride here! I’m going by the book, so invites are going out on later in June or early July and I’m requesting RSVPs by 8/14. I wanted time to hunt down all those that will ineviteably not RSVP without feeling like I have the Super Mario “time is running out” music playing in my head.

- Wedding: September 2013 - Sodo Park
We sent ours on June 1st since most of our guests are from out of town – the RSVP deadline is July 15th. Super early but at least it gives me time to track down all the ones that don’t come in! 🙂

Will do! I got an email from UPS that they’re supposed to arrive today, so I’ll try to get some pics up by the end of the weekend.
We have a very bizarre system for packages in the building we live in (if the super gets to them first, he stores them at his apartment. So unless he’s home, we can’t get them). It’s really frustrating. I’m really hoping we make it back from work before he sees them in the lobby!

I sent out ours June 1st also because we are having an out of town wedding. Requested RSVPs by July 10th.

Just finished(mostly) our invites tonight, getting them weighed Monday, addressing them all next week and sending them out June 15. Our RSVP date is August 24. So that puts us at about 10 weeks between the dates.
We really struggled with when to send them out but we didn’t do STD’s and we have about 30% out of town guests so June 15th seemed like an appropriate date.

We didn’t do STDs (small, family-only wedding so word of mouth sufficed), but just to be on the safe side for those making travel plans, we mailed our invites (ordered from Minted, with colored RSVP envelopes from Paper Source and DIY info card inserts) last weekend (6/1). RSVPs requested by August 17th, since headcount is due to the reception venue August 21st.
