I am probably sending mine out end of May/ early June. I’ve set a RSVP date of August 5 for my Augist 25th weddng.  (a week for late ones to arrive and another week to contact anyone who didn’t respond, and we have to have a final head count one week before the day to our caterer)

I am trying to get mine out the first week of may. Giving everyone a bit of extra time since the wedding is out of town and accommodations can be hard to come by as well as expensive. My MoH thinks I should have a 6 week ahead RSVP deadline because I have to have the head count in two weeks ahead of time and people sucK at rsvping. That still seems a little far outto me though. I feel like 4 weeks ahead of date wedding date is enough. That’s two to get the stragglers. I’m interested to see what you other gals are doing.

We are sending out begininning of May with a June 5th RSVP. Ours is destination so most people already have their accomodations booked anyway so the early date is no sweat.

We also did this so if we have more nos than anticpated we can offer some plus ones to people that didn’t originally get one.

I don’t have a whole lot of out of town guests so we are sending ours out early June with an RSVP deadline of early July, (hopefully enough time!)

For my August 18th wedding I am sending out invites middle of May. Our RSPV date is July 1st because our venue wants the final head count on July 18th.

I am purchasing my invite supplies tomorrow!!! so excited to assemble them and get them in the mail by the end of April, or first week in May.

we are setting our RSVP date for June 15, which is 6 weeks before our wedding. partially because I wanna know who’s coming, and also because the hotels need to confirm the reservations by June 21 or they’ll release the rooms, so we’re telling everyone June 15 to be safe.
