I just found the July board and I’m so excited! I’m getting married on July 22nd but I need help figuring out when I should send my invitations. Also, what should I make the RSVP date be?
Thanks for your help and happy planning!

I am thinking about sending them out mid-late april and hoping for the rsvps in mid-late May. At least that is my game plan right now.

I’m putting mine in the mail May 1st with a June 1st rsvp. We need final numbers and payment to our venue for catering 3 weeks before. This should give me a 2 week cushion to track down the people who didn’t respond.

I’m sending mine out mid-April (I can’t believe that’s next month!!AHH!), and am asking for RSVPs by June 25. (We don’t have vendors who need a final count, except for the rentals.)
I have mine started..but seeing that April is only a few weeks away…I’d better get hopping!

I am sending mine out May 1st and handing out almost 1/3 the weekend before at our Easter Gathering. My RSVP deadline is July 1st.
I can’t believe it’s almost time for us to start sending them out!!!

@napabridekelsey: same here! my event coordinator said rsvp by june 15 so I have 2 weeks to chase people if necessary – final counts due Jul 1&7. I’m shippin’ em out by mid-April. So exciting!

My venue requires final counts 2 weeks before the wedding, so I am planning on having my RSVP due 1 week before that, and then I will spend the week in between calling and following up people who haven’t responded. I plan on giving my invitees about 6 weeks to respond.

I think we are going to make them in April (got a DYI kit) and mail them out on the first of May.

Like everyone else. I’m mailing mine May 1st. I just received my save the dates and will be mailing them out this weekend. I’m a little behind in those but oh well.

As we are doing a destination Vegas wedding I gave out save the dates in December. Trying to nail down details now so I can send evites- and invitations the first week of May for July 30 event. Anyone have the winning powerball number so I can make this all work?

I am sending mine out mid-May with an RSVP deadline of June 25th. That gives me 2 weeks to collect any missing responses before my final numbers are due for catering etc. I sent my STDs out in September since we have so many OOT guests so everyone is already aware of the date.

I’m sending mine in mid-April with an RSVP date of June 1st. I come from a family of stragglers and I know I will have to hunt people down endlessly so I am getting them out as soon as I can within reason.

Thanks this was very helpful! Based on all the responses, I’ll probably send mine out the last week of April or first week of May and plan for a June 25th RSVP.
If you guys are buying your invitations online, what website are you getting them from? I’ve ordered samples from http://www.WeddingPaperDivas.com but haven’t purchased anything yet.
