My date is September 1st. I want the RSVP’s to be in by July 15th and I plan on sending the invites out June 1st or slightly before (for international invites).

About 3 months before, so for me around July 1.

I was thinking late June/early July and I’m at the very end of September.

We are sending save the dates in the beginning of April and invitations in May with replies requested by July 15th. That’ll give me 2.5 months to iron out all the details in terms of food with our caterer.

Well we will probably send overseas ones out soon. As we decided against save the dates…too much effort lol….There is a lot of information guests need to know. A list goes out with RSVP end of June…then B list if A list can’t make it. Failing that we may cave and invite both A list and B List LOL

I guess we’ll send ours out in July? And have a short RSVP of 3 weeks or less. I still have not decided if we’re going to DIY or just buy them. (honestly not sure how much I ‘care’ about the invitations).

My parents sent out our engagement invitations and had a really long RSVP date where I had to chase up a lot of people…

@amyinbrisbane:  Really…I think I need to change the date I send my invites,even to overseas guests..I don’t want to run around chasing people. I have a B list of guests…dammit…I think I will just invite A list and B list….

@Kimy:  Yeah… FH won’t let me have a B list (if you mean, a waiting list? for people who you can invite once people on the first list decline?) … so we had to cull a few people off our list. It was pretty hard, but I think we have a Definite Final List now.

@amyinbrisbane:  It has been so difficult. But I spoke to my man and he has agreed to allow those on the B list too…YAY!!!!…I think I will relax now and send invites out July 🙂

We are just sending out our Save-The-Date Cards, and will probably sending out our invitations in early July, with a RSVP date of Sept 1st! 🙂

We are doing STD’s, and those are going out in the mail, well, NOW, so for invites I think we are mailing them July 21st and having an RSVP date of September 7th? Although maybe I should move that up by a week so I have time to chase, because final numbers probably have to be in two weeks before…

We will send out invites by July 19th with an RSVP of 24 August. That gives me a week to chase up anyone who has responded. Final numbers need to be given by 31st August. We only have 60 guests (across 34 invitations) so it shouldn’t really be a problem. If people don’t know if they’re coming 2 weeks out, then I will let them know not to bother turning up, simple as that!
