November 2013 Weddings

Well that's that!

After a mutual freak out last week that resulted in some quite serious back and forth about whether or not we wanted to scrap the wedding and just elope we made a decision that can no longer be undone with out a great deal of explanation.   I just came back from dropping off our invitations at the post office, so family drama, jitters, and anything else potentially looming,  be damned. November 2 with everyone there  with us it shall be.  CHECK!

There truly is something quite ceremonious about the whole dropping them into the mail box thing. I kind of wanted to turn around and scream I just mailed our wedding invitations! in the middle of the post office lobby so just maybe at least one person would cheer.

Re: Well that's that!

  • Yah! for sending out your invitations!  We mailed ours on Saturday and I felt the exact same way - like someone should take notice . . . but nope, just the post office guy saying "well, aren't you special" is a not-snarky but slightly patronizing kind of way.  Then I panicked and asked FI if we should go pick them up because I wasn't sure he put them in the right box.  :)

    Now it's looking forward to RSVP time!  I can't wait to start getting them back in the mail.  

    Congrats and can't wait for November 2nd!

  • YAY! I want to mail ours so bad but I think it's still a little too early for 11/23. Those invitations are haunting me though just sitting in my apartment waiting to be mailed. The moment I drop them off at the post office, I will go home and celebrate having that particular corner of my apartment empty of invitations.

  • Put mine in the mail this morning! Can't wait to get RSVPs! 

    I have a feeling that we'll get my Aunt's first - she lives about 5 minutes from me and has gotten everything (save the date, shower invite) the day after it was mailed. Plus I'll be seeing her on Thursday and I wouldn't be surprised if she just handed it to me.

  • My wedding is 11/24, and like I said - put them in the mail already.... wanted to give people plenty of time!

    @marsm4- I think I'm going to mail them next week sometime. It's still a little early (11 weeks) but we do have some overseas and OOT guests that I want to make sure have enough time to make travel arrangements. Our caterer needs our final number by the end of October so I figure 2 months is plenty of time to reply.

    ETA: spelling

  • @marsm4: We have our RSVP as October 30th and our caterer needs our number by November 9th which is one week and a few days after our RSVP and I know there will be those guests who don't RSVP so we gave it a week to make those phone calls to find out if they're coming.

  • Mine is November 1.

  • We're going to start putting ours together this weekend!  We have to get a new printer for some of the items we want to print ourselves, so as soon as that's done, we're ready to start mailing!

  • We are waiting for our maps/directions to finish printing then we will start addressing and stuffing. My sister and I finish gluing the leaf embellishments. Hoping to have them all out by next week. I have about a week off so it should give me plenty of time to get things done plus some other checks
