After a week of re-printing, re-organizing, addressing, stamping, and sealing, I’m happy to announce 100 wedding invitations were dropped in the mailbox this afternoon.
(I should note that all of the invitations EXCEPT international invitations were dropped in the mailbox. It’s a long story, but we had some problems with our save-the-dates making it to our out-of-the-country family so we’re still trying to figure out a way to get them out – and get the pre-stamped RSVPs back to us – before we send them out. Did anyone else have international wedding guests? Any tips for invitations/RSVPs? Maybe a note about emailing/calling about the RSVP just in case the RSVP postcard doesn’t make it back to us?)
It was an odd feeling dropping the invitations in the mailbox. Honestly, I’m a little nervous. The invitations are not traditional by any means, so I’m hoping everyone who receives them understands them. I’m also really excited to see the RSVPs start rolling back in. My sister said it took two days she started receiving hers – eekk!
And, now that the wedding invites have gone out, the bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and Sunday brunch invites will soon follow. It’s starting to get real! 🙂
I’ll do a big invitation reveal later in the week (after I know the majority of guests have received the invites), until then I just wanted to mark this wedding milestone with a blog post (for some reason I felt it deserved one 🙂 ).
How long did it take before you started receiving RSVPs? Were you nervous sending out your wedding invitations, too?
