I think you should send them out in mid August. 8 weeks is really the most appropriate, and even mid-August is earlier than that.

We are wedding AND rsvp date twins 🙂 lol I haven’t decided precisely when I’m going to send mine, but I was thinking mid to late August?

The norm is 6 to 12 weeks (so in your case, July 28th thru to September 8th). 

A lot depends on…

How far the furtherst Invite has to go, and the RSVP has to come back from

WHEN your Caterer / Venue Demands numbers by

And, IF you are planning to incorporate a B-List of possible Guests into your numbers.  B-List Guests have to receive their Invites with enough time to reply to the printed RSVP date.

Hope this helps,

Rule of thumb is 6 to 8 weeks. Mine were supposed to be getting sent out next week but they haven’t even finished the freaking proofs yet. >:/ Provided they get sent out on time the guests would have about 6 weeks to rsvp.
