@MrsFarm0619:  We chose May 13 because I know a lot of my family isn’t reliable. I needed the extra time to track people down. If it wasn’t for that, I would have Picked May 25. In your position, I would pick May 20 and call the people who’re missing untill May 25.

May 16th (: I want lots of time to track people down so I’m not stressing at the last minute. We’re sending out our invites around March 14th. I thought maybe our RSVP date was way too early so I’m feeling much better after reading this thread.

I did April 30th for my June wedding. I have a guest list of about 300 people and I know everyone basically sucks at responding. I’m giving myself a month to hunt poeple down since everyone is either from out of town or out of the country!

I’m a June 21st bride; my RSVP deadline is March 31 — only because it’s a deadline before a deadline. 75% have already RSVP’ed.

I’m probably different from many though — I have other looming deadlines for accounting designation. Plus, it’s fiscal year-end coming up. So, I’m already going to be busy in April/May.

June 28th wedding and the rsvp date for the international invites (sent last week) is May 6th.  For our out of state/local invites going out in April, rsvp is June 7th.  This gives us a week to track the locals down for a final count by June 16.  The earlier rsvp for Canada invites (FI’s family) is mainly b/c anything longer, people will put it away and forget. Anyone traveling that great of distance will know by early May if they are coming or not anyway.

MissPine:  Not in trouble–typically invites go out at about the 10-6 week mark.  10 weeks if a lot of guest have to plan travel (in country), less time if nearly everyone is local.  12 weeks is suggested for international, but mainly due to mail delays. The average is 8 weeks, so still time to get them in the mail.

Now I’m wondering if I didn’t leave enough time to track down people but it’s too late to change! I’m a June 7 bride with a May 17 RSVP date.

My RSVP date is May 24th and we’re not sending out the invites until around April 12th.  Gave myself the extra week to hunt down all of the RSVPs 😉
