    I’ve heard lots of opinions on this as well. I’m planning to send my invites out at the 2-month mark and request RSVPS by 3 weeks before the wedding.

    I’m having a DW so our timeline is abit different. We’re sending invites around the 3 month mark and then asking for RSVP’s 2 months out.

    since my wedding is on a holiday weekend Im sending out my STD 9 months early. And the invites probably 3 to 4 months out from the wedding. Ill most likely ask them to RSVP 2 to 3 weeks before the wedding.

    Just mailed my invitations on Monday (about 12 weeks before the wedding). The RSVP date is April 1 for my April 20th wedding.

    I mailed mine in the middle of January, and asked for them to be back by 2/16.  It’s exactly 4 weeks before the wedding, which gives me 2 weeks to hunt down the missing RSVPs!
