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" :-)

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
