I think your timeframe sounds perfect and if she doesn’t meet her promised deadline, hopefully it will just be an extra few days and she’ll do something to help you out (discount, whatever). For now, if she says she can do it, relax… and then see what happens. Easier said than done, I know. I’m not sure why you feel like she won’t hold to her deadline, but if it’s a valid concern be sure to check up on her a few days before to stress the importance of her meeting it.

Even if you send them by the first week of September it should be fine!

It sounds to me like you’re doing fine!  If they’re getting in the mail/ to your guests around August 24th for a wedding two months later, that’s pretty normal, I think.  It’s the same amount of time we’ve planned on.  Every wedding ivnitation we’ve gotten in the last year was pretty much on that schedule, if not later.  If you’re worried you could always call and check in next week or something, but I think you’ll be fine! 🙂

I always heard about sending them out 6-8 weeks in advance…that is plenty of time!  I think if people get them too early they will put off RSVP and maybe even forget about it!  I just sent mine out yesterday for my 9/26 wedding.  That is 7 weeks and that was plenty of time for me!

I think sending them out 6 weeks ahead is the most appropriate.  This way people don’t forget and hopefully if they have any major plans they already know about them.

I think your time frame is fine. We are sending ours out pretty close to two months in advance for our wedding too. We did send Save the Dates though so anyone who needs to book travel already knows the date so I think that helps me not worry about it.

Your timeline is fine. We sent them two months before our wedding, and I think that’s plenty of time.
