@janinaPK:  I was thinking mid-September and having them due by the 1st/2nd week of October. My venue/caterer requires numbers pretty early on.

@janinaPK:  We’re doing the first week in September because some have to go the UK and it’s a semi-dstination wedding for local guests so we want people to have time to plan whether they want to book a hotel or rent a beach house.

Mine will be the end of August or no later than the first week of September as half of our guests live in a different city and some are coming from the US.

Our reception (doing a private City Hall ceremony) is on November 9th, so I am mailing my Zazzle invites as soon as they come in next week. We have a couple people traveling and a lot of our friends are super busy, so the earlier the better for us especially since we JUST got engaged in July.

I’m glad to see that we are not behind though as I started to stress…

I sent mine out last month! Our RSVP date is September 15.  60% of our guests are coming fro other countries so I got in early!

Eight weeks out is the norm…I’ll do it then…we are having such a small wedding, I can call everyone if I don’t get the RSVP.

Ours went out last week. Early but 80% of our guests are from OOT so I wanted them to be able to make travel arrangements/hotel bookings early on.

My reception is November 9th, and my invites just went out yesterday! Whew! Glad that’s done.  I put October 1st as my RSVP deadline. We have a few OOT guests, but we let them know date ahead of time.

I still need to do my RSVPs but I am thinking we will be mailing out our invites by 8/30/13 and requesting RSVPS by 9/30/13. I want to get an early head count for our caterer & decorator. Our wedding is 11/9/13

Mine went out yesterday!  A little early but my FI and I were chomping at the bit to get them into the mail.  I didn’t put an RSVP date on the invitations so I guess I will be calling stragglers about two weeks before the wedding.  Oh well, thankfully we’ve only sent out about 35 invitations and we’re only expecting 50 guests.
