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!!!

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.
