    Since you sent STDs and people are already booking hotel rooms, I don’t see a need to mail them more than 8 weeks out. Sending them out to early risks people forgetting about it because they feel like it’s too far away to make plans or they just put it off and forget

    2 months should be plenty. That gives them about a month to RSVP.

    My wedding is june 16. My rsvp date is April 21 and I STILL haven’t finished sending out invites. yeah. I just send out the first batch friday but I ran out of “the couple is registered at ” cards so i am slacking. seriously slacking! I was gonna do the 3 month mark too cause I have 236 guests and it would give me time to call and contact no rsvp’s!

    I think 8 weeks should be plenty of time. I am shooting for 8 weeks as well just in case mail gets lost or returned.

    8 weeks is more than enough! I’m getting married two weeks after you (July 27) and we are sending out our invites at the same time (May 19th or so) and have RSVP date for June 30. I think if you have sent STDs or if pretty much everyone knows, then three months is wayyyyy too long.
