I find myself in the position of having to reorder my wedding invitations that are pretty much on the verge of being late getting out already for my may 09 wedding! Let's just say that they were addressed, stamped, and ready to go about a month ago...and then FI was assigned the job to get them out. Long story short, they didn't make it to the P.O., disaster ensued, and now I have to reorder new ones.

 

I've re-contacted the vendor that did the orignial invitations, and although I am still working on it, it could potentially take another 3 weeks to get new ones!

 

Anyone have any suggestions on where I can get nice invitations turned around within about a week or so time? I've already put in a rush order to Vistaprint for STDs as a stopgap, but need the formals with RSVP, etc. info to go out really soon. I don't want to go the Vistaprint route if there are nicer (but FAST) options, but will if I have to. I figure tomorrow is the latest I can find and decide on a vendor, or go the Vistaprint route.

Silly question, but why do you need new invitations ? Is it because of the RSVP ?

For silly reasons I wont go into here, FI thought it was best to centralize the invite process through his Personal Assistant, who lives in a U.S. city, while we were out in Europe. We sent them out to her, now they are lost between the European post and DHL. We have been trying to track them down for 1.5 weeks, but now I feel that we just cannot wait any longer to just get new ones. I feel just as responsible for agreeing with FI to send them to his PA, so I have to take some blame for this screw-up, too.


Thanks, to everyone for all their helpful suggestions so far!

And Jess-wedding paper divas looks really good! The price is right, and the shipping times look really fast, too! This may be the answer!

I'll let you ladies know how it all works out.

Oh my, I thought you still had the invites !

If you're looking to non-traditional invites, you can try botanical paperworks. I ordered ny fvors from them. I received a proof the day after ordering, and they have shipped already (I ordered last Friday).

Thanks, everyone for all the help and advice!

 

By way of update, last night I went to Wedding Paper Divas, set up an account, picked out an invitation, and have it all queued up to order. FI wants to wait one more day, since there seems to be some more information coming up on the whereabouts of our original invites. So at worst case, I will just pay expedited shipping and processing fees and should be able to get new ones by the end of next week if I wait another day. In the meantime, our stopgap STDs will be going on on Monday.

 

Sigh. I spent so much time picking out the original invites in our colors, paid extra for thermography, agonized over spelling, wording, addressing, etc., so they could be "perfect". Now I just don't care - I need to get something out, even if it's printer paper scrawled with crayola! LOL. Oh well. Another lesson in "it's all small stuff" :-)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
