So excited to be planning with you all!
Thank you for all of your great posts.
My big day is set for May 30th and I have yet to select invitations.
When is the correct date to send them out? I have heard conflicting data.

Welcome! There isn’t a "correct" date to send them out, which is why you are probrably getting conflicting information. First, you need to find out how many days/weeks your venue needs for their numbers (and your caterer if you have one). Then, I would make sure your RSVP date is at least 2 weeks before that date, this gives you time to call all of the "dead beats" that don’t RSVP. You should mail out your invites 1 – 2 months before your RSVP date. There is no real agreement on when exactly you should mail them out. Since I didn’t do offical Save the Dates we sent ours out early (2 1/2 months) so people could make travel arrangements.
Good luck and have fun posting!
