I think the general rule is 2 months out – I sent mine out on two months to the day, and it seems to be working for us.  But we also didn’t have a “B” list – we might have sent them out sooner if we did

I’m a September bride and am sending out of country & out of town guests their invites in June and the remainder in July so June sounds about right for you!

I want to send my invites out the first week of June. I want to have my reply-by date be July 1st because I know some people will be late replying and I want a final head count at least a month before the wedding.

We’re sending ours out first week of June with a July 7 RSVP date, one month before the wedding. Our final count is due 10 days prior and I want extra time for seating charts, favors tag, etc.

OH wow your head count is due super early.

I agree then with your head count due July 10th you should def send yours out early June as well to give your guests a month to reply and yourself at least a week to track down the non-repliers.

If all goes following the plans, we are going to be sending out our invites halfway May, so around 2.5 months before the wedding. We haven’t done any “Save the Date” cards since that didn’t fit our budget nor is it really common here to send out those, but the most important guests ofcourse already know bout the date! 🙂 Since we get married during summer break we decided to be a little early with the invites to give our guests plenty time to arrange things if need be. The response ‘deadline’ I have set on August 1rst, so 20 days before the wedding, but that might change depending on when our evening venue wants the final headcount. I don’t think they need it much earlier tho.

Wedding is August 7th, we will be sending out invites in the next couple weeks because our venue can’t block rooms for us (Mille Lacs is a HUGE fishing lake and the venue is right on the water). Our RSVP is July 16. I don’t want any surprises. I know maybe I’m crazy but oh well.

I’m sending invitations out this week because it’s a destination wedding and 100% of the guests don’t live in the location

I’m August 13 and am aiming for the first week of June to send.  I am not afraid to send 9-10 weeks early.  I have actually had guests asking me when I’m sending them already …..guess the Save the Dates got them excited.
