We were going to do a simple invite, just something on white very basic because we put so much into everything else - newsletters, save the dates, and the wedding itself. But now, the more I think about it, the more I want pretty invitations - maybe something along the oliostyle ones or something. Because we were doing simple, I wasn't worried about printing, can have them done local within 7 days. Now, I'm concerned, because I would like to have them postal by the end of February - have I waited too long?

    I don't think you've waited too long, especially if you are willing to send them a little later than planned. I mean, you not getting married for more than 4 months, so what's a few weeks? That just my opinion, but I didn't send my invites until the 2nd week of January - so approx 2 months before the wedding.

    May I ask why you feel like you need to send them so early?

    I would like to send them early for 2 main reasons, we have a couple of people still on the fence and we loose our room block on April 15th, so if they are going, I would like them to make their reservastions before then. And I have the next edition of our newsletter ready to go, so I was just going to make a packet out of it and send the invites along with the newsletters. I'm guessing that 03/15 would still be plenty of time. That would be about 3 months out from the wedding.

    They honestly have some decent DIY sets in the stores. they come with vellum and bows. What about doing something like that so you can get them out sooner?

      I think you still have time. I may use this vendor for blank invites, they have those quite pocketfold inivites for a very cheap price. Here is the info on their shipping time.

      Designs from InvitationPaper.com

      Depending on your location and where the items ship from, your product should be delivered to
      you within 1 to 7 days by ups ground at a flat rate of $7.95. You do have the option of UPS air
      upon checkout. Orders in by 12 noon central time should ship the same day. There is no
      guarantee based on product availability. We will try to notify you of delays over 24 hours. Orders
      over the weekend do not ship until the next open business day.

          My wedding is before yours and we haven't ordered ours yet either - I think it's fine - though we do need to get on it!

            I'm getting married the same day as you, Stephanie. I'm planning to send my invites out on March 1st. My room block is going to be released on 3/21. I figured 3 weeks will be long enough for people to decide whether or not they are going to book. I wanted to send them even earlier, but then it just seemed too early.

            I didn't order my invites...I'm making my own, so I'm not much help on the printing timeline.

                It definitly doesnt sound like its to late. I can definitly understand the feeling of needing to get them out ASAP, but like Christa said a week or two or even three's difference probably wont be a big deal. Ecspecially if you have allready done STD's. People know they are coming its not like it will be a big surprise. :)
