We are mailing ours early August because we have TONS of Out of Town guests and we want to give them plenty of time to book their flights and all. They have received their save the dates already so they have a heads up and all.

This reminds me I need to figure out when my final count is due.  My wedding is October 7th so I need to get a move on invitations lol.  Ahhhh

I think your date should be fine for RSVPs.  It gives you a few days in between the final deadline to contact stragglers!

Your plan sounds quite reasonable. Since half of our guestlist is in the UK, I plan to mail the UK invites in early July and the US invites in early to mid-August with a similar RSVP date (either 9/22 or 9/29 – haven’t cemented those things yet).

Pretty much all of my guests are Out of Town… so we’re mailing them out July with a Sept. 1 RSVP date.

I plan on sending out my invites for our out of town guest in June and my local guest in July.

We have all out-of-town guests as it’s sort of a destination wedding, so we’re sending them out in July with a Sept 15 response deadline.

We just ordered ours this weekend.  We put a RSVP date of 9/15 and will probably mail them out at the end of July.  It’s a somewhat destination/ out of town wedding.

MIddle-ish of July, respond date is August 24th. It’s a tiny bit early, but we both have weddings we’re in in September (and most of our guests are either going to one, or aware of both), so we need to be a bit on the earlier side.

i was just thinking about this….we have no out of town guests so we will probably send out invites the begining of Sept with RSVP’s due at the end of Sept.  I am hoping to order them this week!
