    I had a couple days short of  4 weeks from the time they received the invites and when they were to be returned.

    I think I was a couple of days short of 4 weeks too, I meant to have them out a full 4 weeks but I was a little late sending them.

    I did 3 weeks, because I had separate rsvp cards for my B-list, and I needed time for those as well. Plus, people had gotten STDs and did not need more than 2.5 weeks to reply (I think too much time lets people set it aside and forget about it). We had a pretty good return rate, and we did have to chase down a few people, but not too many.

    @beth183:  If everyone invited to the shower will understand about not being invited to the wedding, then why delay sending the invites out? That doesn’t make much sense. Are you sure people will be alright with this? In most circles, this would be a pretty big snub.

    I gave 9 weeks, I’m not sure what I was thinking.
