So I’m just doing my invites and was wondering how far in advance you asked for your RSVP’s back? I was thinking a month prior. We aren’t sending out save the dates so we are going to send out our invites a bit earlier to give people more time to plan.
So Bees what are you doing?

@Toastymama: Can I ask why? Was it just to confirm with catering, etc. Thanks!

We did them 2 months prior, mainly because we had a (i know, some people hate this idea) “B” list to tend to…

I voted less than a month but I’m sending out Save-The-Date Cards to let guests know the date is Sat after Thanksgiving then I am sending out the invitations at the very end of Sept. and I’m planning on making my RSVP date Nov 3rd. That way I feel like I have enough time to chase after the guests who haven’t RSVPed yet. I’m also planning to do nothing wedding related the last week so I’m trying to get it all done asap.

Six weeks, we have to have final counts to the venue a month prior so that gives me time to get all my info together and chase after the slackers 😉

I did a month. I figure this way I have enough time to track down the non-responders and make the seating chart and placecards.

My RSVP date is this Saturday. So a little more than a month. I haven’t received one from FI’s list which I predicted would happen. Now there’s time to track them down.

I did more than a month because I don’t like having it so soon before the wedding. I have a thing about time and it freaks me out if I feel like deadlines are TOO close to certain things, if that makes sense? I’m crazy like that lol. Plus, there are a few people we really want to add and we could easily put them in if we had a headcount much earlier.
