    What is your opinion on postage for STDs, invites and RSVPs. Should I put 1st or 2nd class stamps on them. Worked out that I will need 122 stamps in total but some we can hand deliver which means we need 101 so can just buy a pack of 100.

    What would you do / how did you send yours?

    i'm doing second class, there really isnt that much difference between first and second these days anyway. Plus always good to save a few pound

    I would definitely go with 2nd if you need to buy that many. They will still get there, might just be a day later than if you sent them first class, which in the grand scheme of things, isn't that much different xx

    That's my thinking
    I have found a site I can get 1st class for £56.32 and 2nd class for £51.15 so I'm wondering if its worth jut paying the extra..

    I agree with Nicole, it's only just over £5 but every little helps and they might not get there any quicker anyway x

    I sent my invites out a couple of weeks ago, I put 2nd class on them (because they were cheaper). Posted them on the Saturday and they were delivered on the Monday, same as 1st class would have been.

    If you're sending them very soon, I would say 2nd class as your wedding is 15 months away so a few days here or there won't make a difference. Closer to the time you may want to consider 1st class.

    Spoke to OH last night and he said that as we are spending £50 on them we should just spend £5 more and get the 1st class.

    He also made the point that we budgeted £100 for the stamps for STDs and Invites so we will still be majorly under that.

    Ordered them last night for delivery tomorrow.

    i will be sending mine 2nd class, as the others have said it's not much difference in time really and that extra money i will save will be used elsewhere in the wedding

    I will be delivering quite a bit of mine as a lot of family are close by. The rest I will be sending 2nd class. I don't think there's much difference in time these days

    We did second class for our save the dates and they arrived at all different times over a period of 2 weeks, we found some people a little disappointed that other people had got theirs quite a bit before them. With that in mind we sent our invites first class and it was a difference of 12p per stamp but all arrived within 2 days xx

    I ended up getting my stamps for free :)
    I ordered first class and paid for special signed for delivery to arrive the next day and they didn't arrive so called the company and they refunded me. a few days later they were in with our standard post. no-one was home to sign for them so I checked tracking and they were still out for delivery.

    Just proves what people were saying that 1st class isn't much different when a 1pm special delivery arrives 3 / 4 days after

    StephH it just involves posting parcels at certain times and recording ones that have been sent to me.
