@sillysillybee:  I’m a few weeks before you.. On May 2. We’re going to send out out invitations the week of the 17th.. Or 24th?  And we have an RSVP date of March 30th. Which gives guests about a month to RSVP and gives us two weeks to get ahold of anyone that didn’t RSVP before we have to give the final head count to the caterer (due 2 weeks before the wedding)

@sillysillybee:  yea I think that’s perfect. My biggest thing is I wanted to make sure to give everyone time to rsvp but make sure I had time if I end up needing to hunt people down (which I would prefer to not have to do lol)without adding too much additional stress lol

@sillysillybee:  My goal is to mail them at the end of February. My RSVP deadline is April 17th.

So I think your plan is perfect!

My wedding is the same weekend, just May 18th.  We are sending out the invites out Februrary 14th with a RSVP date of March 15th.  We are doing ours early because we had space contraints and will have a second round of invites after that with an RSVP of April 15th if we had declines in the first round.

@ummsgna:  I was too lazy to make different RSVP cards so we’re hoping that some of our nos are early enough that we can still send out round 2 of invites 🙂

You guys are scaring me just a little, lol. I was planning on mailing mine the first week of March with a RSVP deadline of April 20th.

Hopefully March 14th or so!

Our venue needs the headcount 2 days before (pros of having reception at a restaurant), but our RSVP deadline is 4/28.

Happy 100 day countdown 5/17 brides 😀

Hi date twinnie! My total count is due two weeks in advance and I forgot about this! I originally had planned for April 26th. Thank goodness I was able to fix it before the RSVPs were printed. Now the date is April 5th. Plenty of time to hunt people down, and order favors based on number attending.
