@Lulume:  since its on a holiday weekend, i think the timing is fine. we’re date twins, and i’m sending mine out July 5. i’m sending mine out that early because our venue has to have final headcounts by sept 18 (ridiculous) so our RSVP date is August 31. we also have about 25% of our guest list coming from out of state so i wanted to give people time to plan.

you’ll have to keep us (me!) updated as your RSVP’s start rolling in!

You just made my head spin because i’m getting married in October and haven’t gotten the invites calligraphied yet. If it works for you, then go ahead and do it, but I won’t personally send out mine until late July/early August, and most of my family and friends are going to have to fly in. 

I’m excited though, this is a big step for October weddings!!!

did you send a Save the Date?

If yes, then i would send the invitation 2-3 months in advance.

If no, then you can send them now.

My wedding is the week after yours, I am planning the send invitations the beginning of August.

They look absolutely lovely! I love the white pen on black envelope, and your writing looks great.

I’m also getting married sort of over Canadian thanksgiving too… It sounds so far like that’s making things easier for lots of family. (Which is awesome. I was a little on the fence about that and thought we might get in trouble for hijacking a holiday.) More notice in this case is always good I think.

I sent our invitations this past weekend, with an RSVP date of August 1st. It’s early in case we get a good amount of declines, though I doubt we we will. If we do get them, I have a small group of B-listers in mind…

We sent STD’s months ago, so I’m sending out our invites the first week of August.

Invitedls look really nice, definitely too early to send out.

I think if you didn’t send out STD’s that you will be fine sending them out now. Just so people can start making plans.

I plan on sending mine out mid-end July.

We’re not sending them until August… now seems a little early, and I think you’ll have people forget to RSVP because of the timing.
