We sent ours out two months before and had our RSVP date be exactly one month before. Our venue needed the final number 2 weeks before, so we had 2 weeks to track down anyone we hadn’t heard from. So for you, I’d send them august 6th, and have the RSVP by date as September 6th. You can get them printed and ready to go as soon as you want, though! Get that project off you to do list, for sure. 🙂

My wedding was May 22, and I mailed my invitations the last week of February/first week of March. My response date was May 1 to allow for some stragglers.

I sent my invitations out 10 weeks before the wedding and asked for RSVPs by three and a half weeks before the wedding.  You don’t want to send them much earleir than that because people will forget and put it off.  If you are anxious to formally announce the date to guests to make sure they set the date aside, that’s what Save-the-Dates are for and you can get some pretty inexpensive ones made, maybe even with photos of you and your fiance, as postcards.
