And also, what will you use as your RSVP date?

I know I’m a little early, but we’re asking for RSVPs by the third of November–one month in advance of the wedding.
We’ll be sending them out October 8th, I think…possibly the week after but my family knows I get anxious and like to send things out early, so they won’t be surprised if they get them around the 10th/11th.
We are ordering them in August
Sending them out in mid to late October
RSVP’s are due back by late November to Early December
And then we are sending out our “B-list” invites after getting the first 50 back.
We are then giving our final head count to the venue mid December since the wedding it on the 30th.
(The “B-list” thing sounds bad but it’s friends that we were close with in high school and not so much anymore that we want to invite, but budget won’t allow, so depending on how many family members say no we can invite more friends. But they are invited to the dance, so I’m not cutting them out compleatly.)
we’ll probably be ordering our invitations soon. i still haven’t quite figured out how we’re addressing them (labels? calligrapher —- whoa that’s expensive). i just figure more time is better.
i plan to send them by end of September with a RSVP date of November 4 (a Friday…so I’ll have all weekend long to hound those who haven’t gotten back to me yet!)
I will probably send our Invites out at the end of September with a RSVP by the beginning of November. We havnt really sat down to figure out when we needed them back by. I guess If I want to order our invites soon, I should probably work on that.
@blueroses: Oh, how I would love to have a calligrapher address the invites…it’s 100% out of our budget, but I can admire the beauty from afar!
I guess my timeline isn’t super early after all; maybe I’ll bump up our mail date by a week or so to give guests extra time to respond. We’re ordering the invites now, so it’s not like I won’t have them in hand.
I’m going to start DIYing my our invites this week and plan to have them all done by the end of July (we’re both in grad school, so we’ll have no time to work on projects come September). I plan on getting them in the mail around October 8 (8 weeks out) and the RSVP date will be November 12 (3 weeks).
I have a meeting with the caterer on Monday, so hopefully he’ll let us know when we need final numbers in November and I’ll probably add a little time to our RSVP deadline to account for stragglers or missing RSVPs. We’re printing our own invites so I’m going to do them this summer and bring them to my mom who will be doing the calligraphy. I think we’ll send them out about 8 weeks in advance, so probably at the beginning of October.
I have to have final counts 30 days before so I am sending out invites late september and RSVP’s due Nov 1st. That will give me a week to hunt people down who didn’t reply.
I ordered them this week.
We didn’t do STD’s, just spread the word, so we are hoping to send them out a little bit early, like mid-September. The RSVP date is December 2nd. Again, a little early, but it gives us the opportunity to hunt people down at a very busy time of year.
We still haven’t even sent save the dates, because we just booked our venue this week. We’ll send save the dates as soon as we finalize the guest list, and then send invites in mid-october, and have them due Nov. 3rd, a month before the wedding.
I’m getting married December 17. Etiquette says 8 weeks prior which is October 22 is when I should send out invites, but we’re going to do it earlier — like towards the beginning of October. Simply because it is the week before Christmas and we have a lot of Out of Town guests. RSVPs will be Nov 17, a month before the wedding!
I wanted to have our invites addressed too and it was way to expensive. I went on line to several wedding sites and found that although a label is very much a no no that doing the envelopes themselves on the computer is now considered appropriate. I used Wilton.com to address my envelopes, I used a an edwardian font and they turned out beautiful. Zero cost to me and so much prettier than my own handwriting.
December 17th is our wedding day. We already have our invitations printed out so all we have to do is calligraphy on the envelopes for the invites. We are sending out i believe October 20th and RSVP by November 17th should be enough time to get things into the venue for seating charts.
We just got our Invitations the other day in the mail. I opened the box and almost cried because I loved them so much. Our wedding date is 12/3 and we set and RSVP date of November 12th. That way I have 2 weeks before our final numbers are due to track down those who are to lazy to walk to the mailbox with the prestamped RSVP Card… I really hope its not that many
