Wedding Invitations & Paper

When to order invites

How far in advance of when you sent out invites did you order/buy them? I'm getting mine from minted.com (GiltCity deal a while back, what what) if that makes any difference.

    I procrastinated and ordered them in mid-January. They had to go out early February. Thank goodness they got here in like 2 days!  I shouldn't have done that, so don't follow my example!  
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

  • Minted is pretty quick with turnaround times. The invitations should be sent out about 8 weeks ahead of the wedding, so I'd give yourself a buffer of a few weeks prior to that so you can address them, be sure there are no mistakes, etc. 

    Really, you can order them as soon as you have finalized the information - just wait to send them out until the appropriate time.

  • We used Vista Print Groupons and ordered a bit at a time as we purchased Groupons, We had everything we needed (invite, RSVP card, reception card) about a mont - 3 weeks before we sent them out. We took a weekend to address and stuff them all and sent them last week.
