@MrsN14:  It’s not really ‘proper’ but I’m doing it too.  I’m being extra bad though and I’ve sent invites to my 3 classmates that are 100% invited and then I will send invites to others later if we get enough declines.

We’re using the same RSVP date for them all.  April 17 for our May 17 wedding.  Invites went in the mail last night – 3 months out.  I’m banking on getting back several right away, I’m hoping the declines that I’m anticipating will reply quickly.  

I think the absolute latest you can send someone an invite is 6 weeks out, so you should have your initial RSVP date 7 weeks before the wedding so you can send invites in time for people to get them 6 weeks in advance and have your second RSVP deadline 2 weeks before the wedding.
