Mine is June 15. I’m asking for RSVP by May 15. I’m sending out the invites early by most standards, hopefully out by March 1 but this is because our venue is a mini destination with everyone either camping or booking a motel/cabin on the property and we have exclusive booking from April 1 to 15 , cabins and motel rooms are very limited and I want people to have time to decide and get them before the general public.

June 15 here. Sending them late March/early April. RSVP by May 10th.

We sent STD’s so people know the drill.

We are sending ours out at the beginning of March! We have an extensive B list, so we need to extra time to accommodate a second round of invites.

I have my invitations ready and waiting to go, just waiting for the right time to send them.  The RSVPs ask for a response by May 21st but since there are some B list people I’d love to invite, maybe I’ll send out invitations in early March instead of early April.

Mine is June 16th, I have to pay the caterer and venue in full by one month before the wedding date, so my RSVP is May 3rd! I am sending the invites out at the beginning/middle of april!

@madteaparty:  Yep! We have a max of 150 people allowed at our venue, and about 200 people we would like to invite! We know a few will be unable to attend, so as they RSVP we can send out the others. I don’t want to risk over inviting as I have heard horror stories of having to un-invite people!

My wedding is June 9th. I guess I am going against the norm, but I am planning on sending mine out within a week! About half of our guest list is out of town guests, so it seems reasonable to me. We did send out STDs, but I swear, people don’t pay attention to those. Anyways, I don’t see the harm in sending them out a little early. People book up quick in the summer, and my family and friends seem to appreciate much advanced notice. Plus, my fiance and I are both graduating in May, so we want to plan ahead as much as possible. We put our RSVP for May 1st.

@madteaparty:  YES! I think people threw ours away, personally. But maybe was actually useful for some people, atleast I hope.

I’m June 1 and sent invites out this week!! We have 2 RSVP dates because I would Like to get some of the RSVPs back earlier rather than later. I need to know how many people from the secondary list we can invite. We have an RSVP date of April 1 and May 1. Most of the April 1 RSVPs went to close friends and family.
