    @MrsPocahontas:  when do you need to give your final #’s to your venue? I would give them until 2-3 weeks before that date to give you time to track down errant responses.

    I’d want as much time as possible to deal with all the little details, so I say 4 weeks.

    • Wedding: March 2014

    I’m getting married in March, invites out in November and asking for responses no later than the middle of January.  I’m sending them out so early cause I don’t want them mixed into the Christmas cards.

    I guess it depends on how good you are with seating plans and how many guests.  I, personally, hate doing seating plans so I want as much time as I can do to that part.

    I am sending mine the first week of October with an RSVP date of November 8th. Over half of our guests live out of town. I want to make sure they have time to get rooms. I want them back early so I can plan my food. We are doing it ourselves.

    My response date is just shy of 4 weeks before the wedding.  My venue requires a final count 2 weeks before and I wanted to give myself a week and a half to contact people in case they don’t respond.

    I think 3-4 weeks before the wedding date is fine.

    @MrsPocahontas:  We requested it 5 weeks before the wedding because we knew people wouldn’t respect that date. Some vendors require final numbers a month before the big day so it’s all relative to when you need to provide them.
