I don’t really know. Close to two weeks before the wedding will probably be our RSVP date. I think our caterer is only a week-10 days before, but to get them all in & call, I need to do early. I really need to get on addressing them to send  them out sooN!

I think I’m going to do 3 weeks early.  I already know most of the people that won’t be able to make it, so I can send out a few extra invites with the A group.  I think three weeks will still be enough time to send B list if necessary because my venues doesn’t need numbers until 3 days before…

I can’t believe we’re getting so close!

I mailed out my invites May 10th and I have an RSVP date of July 9th. Most of my guests are out of town as well as the room block closes June 9th, so I thought this was a happy medium.

we mailed ours out in may (because 1/2 of our guests need to travel out of country to get there) with a july 1 deadline for an august 14 wedding.  we’re not having a “b” list and our caterer needs 1 month notice in case we need to overhaul the menu (due to space constraints… hopefully not)  july 1 would give us 2 weeks to hunt down stragglers!

My wedding is on August 14th, and I made the RSVP day very early: 1st of July. Some ppl are coming from out of the country and I wanted to give myself plenty of time for planning. I don’t have an A list and B list. I just have one list. I will call the ppl who don’t RSVP who I really want to come. The others, if they don’t RSVP I won’t worry.

You’ll probably get some declines in the mail right away, so you can start inviting B list friends very soon after the A list invites went out.  Otherwise I think your schedule will work.  Are you printing two separate sets of RSVP cards with the different “reply by” dates on them?

We do not have a B list and for the must part I know (at least on my side of the family and friends) who is coming as they (and i did too) live In USA and wedding is in Toronto (where i live now) so they gotten their tickets 🙂 They are some last minute additions but that is a different story 🙂
