    it really all depends on when you need your final head count. I needed mine 3 weeks in advance. If you don’t need that type of time to give final head count then 5 weeks is probably enough (but you may still want to call folks so they don’t wait to put the RSVP’s in the mail)!! If you have most e-mail addresses its probably a good idea to send out an e-mail…do you have a wedding website set up? If so, maybe you can put a message there….maybe even set up a place for people to RSVP!!  I am so sorry you are going through this…I would definitely not advise that you just wait and send the RSVP out as is…Give guests some lead time, particularly if you are going to have a very short RSVP period.

     email is good you can find some things at smilebox.com that have really cute designs and you can email those through, just incase the invite doesnt arrive in time!

    I think you are covered if you sent the Save the Dates.  People will know the date and may have already started making plans.  I would say for some of the intenational guests if you want to casually call or email each one of them just to let them know there were some delays in the invitations but the wedding is still on.

    YEah if you set the Save-The-Date Cards you should be fine. If yu have any international guests, you might want to contact them just in case.
