I think it’s smart to send your invitations out earlier than the norm, given everyone’s travel circumstances.

However, I don’t think it’s such a good idea to ask guests to R.s.v.p. 3-4 months before your wedding. Some people won’t know their plans that far in advance, some people will forget, some people’s plans will inevitably change over that space of time and they’ll have to change what they R.s.v.p’d, which will be annoying to you … R.s.v.p.s have a low rate of return anyway, and I think by doing it this way you’re actually complicating your life even though you’re goal is to simplify.

We did hotel blocks with a release date of one month before the wedding, and we set our R.s.v.p. deadline for that same date, because it would be easier to remember just one date for both things and because we felt that one month gave us sufficient lead time for planning without being too close or too far out. Could something like that work for you?

Why don’t you do a wedding website that lists in detail where it will be, the hotel name and number and the event coordinators name so they can secure their rooms in your block of rooms. You should list the last date they can block a room by. Do it for 6 weels before wedding date. You can also list your registry on their and directions toget there. Are u doing welcome bags to be placed inside their hotel rooms?
