@kristen182:  8 weeks before the wedding date. Most people will send it back to you soon after they get the invite.

It would all depend on when your vendors need final counts. Our vendors need 30 days before the wedding, so we adding an addition two week deadline. Wedding is May 31st, RSVP deadline by April 15th. We sent out invitations by end of January… suffice notice.

@kristen182:  Figure out how much time you’ll need after the RSVP deadline to track people down and get your final numbers, and then work back from there. I would say to give yourself at least 4 weeks after the deadline, so the RSVP deadline would be September 25. Then, add 2 months to that to send the invites out: that’s early August. So, send them out August 1st with an RSVP deadline of September 25.
