With just under 7 weeks to go before the big day, make sure you don’t miss the last posting dates, especially if you’re sending cards and parcels abroad!

Unfortunately, it’s already too late to ensure surface mail gets to Africa, Asia, Australia, the Caribbean, Central & South America, New Zealand, the Far & Middle East, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore and the USA, as well as Eastern Europe. If you post these now, there’s no guarantee they’ll make it to the destination by Christmas. Why not try sending them via international airmail instead (see below)?
