stupid stupid stupid! i was going to stalk up on the cute flower stamps canada post had out but did i… NO! and now there is nothing cute. so it was either country singers i have never heard of, queen elizabeth, or confetti flying out of an evelope for me to choose from. thankfully these were jsut for a hand full of save the date cards.
i checked the canada post website and thank goodness they are putting out an orchid stamp in january! PERFECT! that is when we are planning on mailing out our invites… actually when should we send out our invites? out wedding is in June 2010, when is the earlies we should be getting these mailed out?
has anyone else had to go through ugly stamp issues? i didnt want to go the route of making stamps that have a picture of us on it, as that doubles the cost of the stamp… silly in my books when we are on a tight budget.

I think that the norm for sending out invites is anywhere from 3 to 6 months. 6 if it’s destination. Glad you’re going to get better stamps. I think I’m leaning towards a pic of us or a design we make.

I think the norm for sending out invitations is to have them arrive sometime in between 6 and 8 weeks in advance.

I’d heard 6 to 8 weeks. They say to lean towards 8 weeks if you have guests coming in from overseas, and 6 weeks for more local guests. We sent ours at the 6 week mark. Our RSVP date is this weekend!

i’ve heard 6-8 weeks also unless your planning a destination, your wedding falls on a holiday or a lot of you guests are out of town. we are sending ours out earlier and 8 weeks since all our guests will have to travel and our wedding is at a popular location
