So I ordered my invitations and recieved them last week and love them! My wedding is June 22 on the west coast and I have about half of the guests coming from east coast. I am trying to plan for shuttles from hotels and possibly invite out of town guests to the rehearsal dinner so I really want to get a count asap!
Here is the problem – I ordered my response cards with an RSVP date of April 15. I plan to send them out next week and give them 6 weeks to return them and I figured if someone is flying from the east coast they should know by April 15 if they are coming or not since they have to book flights and everything. But now that i’m thinking more about it i’m kind of thinking 4/15 may have been way too early.
What do you guys think? Was this a bad mistake and should I reorder the response cards with a later date or is it ok to leave it as is?

4/15 doesn’t seem that early to me for a June wedding. I think it’s totally fine!

I would say just leave it. Chances are a lot of people are going to forget or whatever and you’ll have to track them down. (Sucks but its true) You can always just wait a little longer to track down those stray ones.

I think that’s absolutely acceptable for a June wedding.

I would leave it the way it is.

@turtle62212: I think it’s fine so keep it as it is especially since you’ll have some guests who won’t RSVP in time.

That’s fine. But what makes you think that guests will always book their flight so early? They may end up waiting to get tickets. Not everyone makes travel plans so early.

Meh, just leave them. The people who are going to send them in right away still will and the people who don’t you probably would have had to track down anyway!
