@mh.albania:  I have a lot of out of town guests. I also did not send save the dates.

@mh.albania: If you sent save the dates I wouldn’t stress too much.

My weddings June 4th, hoping to have my invites out by this weekend.  We’re only giving the guests 3 weeks to respond, hopefully the short response time will get people’s acts together!

We also sent Save-The-Date Cards, although the older generations thought it was the actual invite ><

@mh.albania: I plan to send mine about 12 weeks out, simply because then I will have time to collate RSVPs without too much stress (I hope!). But six weeks will be fine, especially as you’ve sent save-the-dates.

We sent ours out now, to give our guests a month to respond as we want the final numbers a month before the wedding so we can follow up with anyone we need to.

My wedding is June 11th, and Fiance and I sent our invites out on April 1st. Our respond by date is May 2nd. Like Elarissa, we want the number of people 1 month before the wedding. Everyone is different. I think you are okay because yours isn’t until late June. It all depends on when you want your final head count by.

@Elarissa:Same here. Most of our vendors (caterer, venue, etc.) needed to have a pretty final number as close to a month before as possible. We sent our invites out on April 2 with a May 1 RSVP date so that we have 2 weeks to round up anyone who hasn’t RSVP’d so that we can get the numbers to our vendors.

My wedding is June 4 and I just sent out my invites the beginning of last week.  You have a later June date so you should be fine.  And yeah, I’ve heard 6 to 8 weeks before to send them out.

My wedding date is two weeks before yours and I am not mailing mine out until this Friday, which will be 8 weeks before the wedding. It is also the one year aniversary of the day he proposed on!

Our caterer requested a total count by May 15, so I had ours out by April 1 so that I could give people a month and then start calling and having a total count to the caterer on time.

Yes, I would definitely look at your catering/reception contract and find out when you have to get them counts by and make sure that you are getting them in enough time!  Then give yourself enough time to follow up on people who don’t get back to you.

Our wedding is July 30 and I’m sending ours out in early/mid May with responses due at the end of June.

We are date twins! And I haven’t sent mine yet either. I am planning on sending them on May 1st, getting the responses by June 1st, since my vanue needs a rough number 2 weeks before, that gives me one week to round up any non-responders. But my venue also said 2 days before, if any people say they are coming at the last minute that it is fine. Good luck with it all!
