For our Feb. 9th wedding this year we sent out the first week of December. No problems with holiday cards, as far as we knew. We had to chase down RSVPs but no one blamed the holidays.

ETA: I have no experience with A and B lists.

I’m planning to send them the early to mid December.

Since a significant portion of our invitations (more than 20%) are going overseas AND we don’t want to screw with holidays, we’re sending them out in early November with a mid-January RSVP deadline. We know it’s a bit early, but we don’t want them to get lost in the mix of the holiday season that explodes post-Thanksgiving. Hopefully folks won’t be put off.

@mousepeach:  I’m also sending an A and B wave for a 2/22/14 wedding. I’d love to send them out sooner rather than later. I’m thinking mid to late October for the first round and stagger round B depending on round A’s responses. Did you decide what you’re going to do?

I plan to send ours in October. We are kind of doing a B list, just a bunch of my fiance’s parents’ friends that they want to invite. Neither my fiancé or I know/care about those guests though haha! I wanted to get them out well ahead of the holidays also, and a few months ahead is when I’ve always received invitations. I like planning in advance.

I’ll probably send mine out early Dec, anything earlier and people will forget. I’ve been b listed enough times to know how it feels, so I’m only sending out one round. Hopefully I’ll have enough declines to upgrade a couple of things. Besides, everyone pays more attention to their mail at Christmas so I doubt anyone will overlook the invite.
