So my Save The Dates are out YAY!!! and now we are looking at invitations and we have it narrowed down to two diffrent styles. But my questions are this if my wedding is 9/21/13 when is a good time to send out invites and when should I ask to have rsvps back by?
Ive looked around to get this timeline in a few wedding books but they can be pretty vague, so seeing the hive has helped me out before I figured there would be a few bees on here that may be able to answer these question for me
Thank you !!! 🙂

When does your caterer/venue require final numbers? I would set the date two weeks prior to that so you can hunt down missing RSVPs. The deadline is usually about two weeks to one month prior to your wedding. You should send your invites about 8 weeks prior to the wedding date.

I sent my invites 4 months before becauase we have a lot of family out of province and they need to book flights and accomodations. If you’re getting married on September 21 I’d say it would be best to send them between July 15-July 19 and rsvp at least 4 weeks before your wedding date.
From what I’ve heard from my friends who have recently got married they had to hunt down a few guests to figure out if they were coming so you want to leave yourself that time.
