No it wouldn’t. And typically the same rules don’t apply when having a Destination Wedding as having a hometown wedding. I just sent out my invitations last tues and the RSVP date is Mar 2nd (I should have made mine a month before!!!), leaving them literally a week to respond!!! I was expecting late RSVPs anyway with my guests. But I would hurry and get on it!

What about April 27th?

Gives people 1 month to respond and you 6 weeks to finish organizing.

Mine is in my town and the RSVP deadline is one month and five days before the date. A friend having his wedding the day after mine, also in town, had his RSVP deadline almost two months ahead of the date. In both cases there were just 3 weeks between receipt of the invitation and the deadline. I think that’s totally fine… I know when I get wedding invitations, if I don’t RSVP within a week of getting it I totally forget, lol. It’s not like it ACTUALLY takes a long time to figure out if you can go or not. You look at your calendar, request time off if needed, and check yes or no depending on the answer. I don’t know why it would take anyone more than three weeks to figure that shit out.
