Im having my wedding May 21st (ealier than yours, but this is my time line 

Sending invites out mid-Feb (distination wedding, although we have told important people the date already) and asking for RSVP to be returned by April. (My friend did her RSVP the month before her wedding and people called to cancel/ask if they could change their answer and come. She was a softy so she let people do this, but it was hard on her.

Ours is May 27. We sent save the dates in November and invitations around new years. I have to give the resort a final count 2 months in advance, so I made my RSVP deadline March 15 to give me time to track people down. I’m not too worried about the deadline, because I don’t think it will be a huge deal to add or subtract last minute, since I don’t picture that number changing by more than a couple. I am impatient/excited to see who is coming though!

What I’m more worried about is people making their reservations last minute and rooms filling up… or someone not getting a passport…

  • Wedding: April 2013

My DW is April 20. Our invites are going out next week, and responses are due back by March 20. 

 

In our case, we had a lot of people book rooms right when the Save the Dates went out, with a few others trickling in. Recently I’ve had a lot of people ask me about how to book rooms etc… guess they missed the wedding website on the Save the Date! Too bad I spent days working on it. 🙂

 

Good luck!

Hi!  Newbie here.  Our date is 6/22/13 and we sent our formal invitations the 2nd week in January with a March 1st RSVP date.  Our room block is only held until 3/22.  RSVPs are trickling in!  We sent our save the dates last August.

Our DW will be in June. I’m planning on having invites out by end of Feb (all the important people have known the details for months now). Our RSVP date will probably be beginning-mid May. I didn’t do save the dates, I just emailed/texted all the important people.

Our wedding is June 8.  We also sent our save-the-dates last fall.  Official invites went our this week and RSVP deadline is April 8 (our venue needed 2 moths).  Hope this helps!
