I have an August bride friend and her RSVP deadline was a month ago. It gives people time to plan and make sure they don’t schedule other things on that day. I will send mine out that early too, I do not see a problem with it.

You’re within the appropriate range of sending out invitations. Some websites say you should send them out at the 3-months-before-the-wedding mark. Others say 4-6 weeks before the RSVP date. I say send away!

We just received an invite for a friend that is getting married August 11th.  I don’t think its too early.

So that would be sending the invites about 10 weeks in advance? I think you can swing it. Personally I would not send out invites before 8 weeks, and even that is a little early for me, unless you’re having a Destination Wedding or sending invites to someone abroad.

I say do it- especially since you didn’t send out Save-The-Date Cards. Especially with a summer wedding- you want to make sure people can make it!!

Even if you haven’t sent STD’s surely those nearest and dearest to you know of the date and are probably saving it anyway.

I would stick to the 6-8 weeks ahead of time, and send them between the last week in June and the first week in August.  With the RSVP date on the 10th of August.

I think since you didn’t send Save-The-Date Cards, it’s not too early to send out now!
