@kmcnamara:  I sent our wedding invitations over a week ago for our October 5th date, with an RSVP deadline of August 1st. The reason I sent them somewhat early is because there are a small handful of people who I think will decline, and I have some B-listers in reserve in case that happens.

I am mailing mine at the very end of July/beginning of August. I also sent STDs a long time ago (January?) so the guests have travel info already.

I am sending mine at the beginning of August, with RSVPs mid to end of August. Save the dates went out at the end of May so people already know to make travel arrangements if needed.

I have sent my list A last week giving guests time to reply till the end of July.

 

If I have any spaces left I will send a B list at the beginning of August giving them till mid September to reply.

We didn’t do STD’s

We plan to mail them mid-July with an RSVP date of September 1st.

I mailed STD’s on February 1st.

The plan is to send them the final week of July! We may or may not be moving in August so that’s going to affect the return RSVP’s, haven’t figured that one out yet : /

I’m hoping to send mine out no later than the week of July 21st. I’m setting the RSVP date for August 24th so I can give guests enough time to respond but still have a few weeks to catch the “slackers” haha. However, I’m having issues with my invitations right now and I’m a little stressed/worried about them getting here in time enough for me to put them together and send them out by that date.

For referece, we sent out STDs in January so my guests already know the date and hotel information

I’m glad to see this thread – as I was beginning to get a bit worried about my timeline. I was planning on sending ours at the end of July, with a RSVP for the first week in September. We’re getting close, Octobers!! : )

@kmcnamara:  We are sending our invites out at the 8 week mark, so for us that will be August 24th. We have an RSVP by date set at September 27th, which gives guests just under 5 weeks to RSVP. We need to give our caterer a head count by October 5th, which is two weeks before our wedding.
