I am ordering my invites in the next few weeks for my jan 23 wedding.


I am also trying to plan to send my invites a bit early because of the holidays

I'm hoping to order them soon- like by the third wk of Sept.  We plan to send them during the first week of November- if not a little earlier.

I ordered mine already, but that was because I had my guest list done about 2 months after we were engaged.  After we got the materials we knew there would be quite a bit of assembly, I didn't want to be rushed, so I allotted more time than necessary. 


I too will be sending them out earlier than any guide says, right now my send by date is 9 weeks before my date (send by 11/2), then I have a RSVP by date of 12/17 so I can call people to get responses before the holidays.  Lets face it, I will not be getting much done once x-mas rolls around.

I'm ordering mine soon, and sending them out the last week of September/first week of October (hopefully).  While i'm waiting for them to come in, I'll be working on printing the inserts and rounding the edges.. bleh.


I think once these are done, it's smooooth sailing.  The hubs and I are finalizing the guest list tomorrow and we will the order the invitations.


If I'm not mistaken, we have to confirm our head count for the food by November.  If that's not correct, and I have more time to send out my invitations then we may wait for the first week of November to roll around.  Regardless, I'm going to get these babies assembled ASAP so I can cross them off my list!


P.S. Our wedding date is 1/9 =)
