I hope everyone else’s planning is going well and that you all enjoyed a week filled with family and food!
I FINALLY ordered my invitations and couldn’t be happier with the result! I held off on ordering them for so long because it was the one thing I really didn’t have a clue about. Being a wedding director has its perks for the day-of tasks, but everything that has to be done leading up to the “big day” is a huge mystery to me like everyone else!
Luckily, the company I ordered the invitations through has a wonderful customer service line. I was able to call and speak with a representative who filled out my complicated order form with just the right wording. He even corrected me on having a ceremony at five o’clock in the “afternoon” instead of “evening!” Just to have peace of mind, I ordered proofs to be sent to my email for review.
Once I finalized my order, I received the invitations about four business days later. A couple of chick flicks, and tons of junk food later, my sister and I had all of the invitations set to be addressed and mailed!
Be sure when preparing to send your invitations to take one by your local post office to have it weighed. Most invitations will require extra postage, and the last thing you want to do is send out invitations only to receive them back a day later! While you’re at the post office, remember to buy postage for your response card envelopes (remember to make it easy for your guests to send a response to you!).
I’m cutting it a little close, but I am glad to have the weight of invitations almost off my shoulders!
I hope everyone had a fabulous (and filling!) Thanksgiving week! We’ll see if I still fit in my dress at my first fitting after a few slices of my mom’s scrumptious pumpkin pie!
