I have been trying to gather addresses for everyone on my guest list for months now and finally got them all in almost a week ago. My invitations have been put together since December, so I just stuck them in the envelopes and put a stamp on them without looking at them. I went ahead and took them to the post office Thursday because I knew it would take time for them to go out and the RSVP date was supposed to be February 17.
I hadn’t thought about them again until today. I had a friend print them out for me because I didn’t have a working printer at the time and she asked if I would like the template just in case I needed to print anymore for keepsakes and I said yes.
So, I open the template she sent me and noticed that the RSVP date was February 7 and not the 17th. That only leaves around 2 weeks for all the invitations to be recieved and for to be RSVP’d to.
I feel like that’s going to be cutting it rather close and I don’t want people to assume that they were B listed.

@SouthernGirl: I’m thinking it’ll be okay. If you’re really concerned, could you send a followup e-mail clarifying the RSVP date? But honestly, it’s better that the mistake was an earlier date than later! People are usually delayed anyway. 🙂

@SouthernGirl: don’t worry about it! People will see it and might think “that’s a little soon”, but as another poster said, most guests are late sending rsvps back. If by your original feb 17th RSVP date you are still waiting on some people, then feel free to contact them, but not any sooner. It’s going to be fine.

I included my wedding website on an insert for more information in my invites, since most everyone is not familiar with the location where we’re getting married and the RSVP date is correct on the website, so I know that some people will check there and see it. I just didn’t want anyone to think that I’d B listed them. Some of my family members can be a bit offended by the small things, so that was my main concern. My mom already knows what happened, so at least I have her to help out if anyone calls to ask about why the RSVP date was so soon.
