6 weeks isn’t too bad for local guests.  The standard time frame is usually 6-8 weeks for invitations.

It’s not too late. I would send them as soon as absolutely possible.

Why can’t you send them Monday? When is your RSVP date? 6 weeks is tight, but it’s not unheard of.

@Katnisseverdeen:  Is there not a post box you can just drop them in? I don’t know if the post is different in Canada, but in America, I can buy stamps either from a post office kiosk or at the grocery store and then drop the envelopes off in a post box just about anywhere.

@Katnisseverdeen:  No friends who can help you out (or the FI?)? This late, every day counts, but if you have to wait until Thursday, I guess that’s the way it is. We’re pretty lucky here in America with the flexability of our postal service. I don’t know what I would do without the 24 hr. post office kiosks in the lobby of largers post offices. Good luck with the invitations!

@Katnisseverdeen:  The Post Office near my apartment is open til 9pm every weekday.  You could go in after work?  However this Post Office is located in a Shoppers Drug Mart so that probably has to do with how late it’s open…

Good luck!

@Katnisseverdeen:  You can also get postage stamps at Shoppers Drug mart, at many convinience stores, really all over.

The sooner you get the invites out the better.  You don’t want people to think they have been B-listed.
