    I said send them in May. I think two invited at a time will call more attention to your event and get people really excited about the festivities. I’m getting married July 09th and we’re sending out the invites the first week of May too.

    Unless most of your guests are from far Out of Town, I’d wait until May.

    I picked May. My sister sent my bridal shower invitations 3 days after I sent my wedding invitations out. My shower was 6 weeks before the wedding. So essentially we have the same time line. I think when you sent them too early they just get pushed to the side and you won’t get rsvp cards back in a timely manner.

    We are date twins!! I’m sending out my invites mid-May or the end of May (whichever my mom chooses). And RSVPs should be received by June 30th. April seems to early to me, I think people will forget! I got an invitation two weeks ago for an April wedding and I’ve forgotten about it twice already! Finally heading to the mailbox now to send my RSVP 🙂

    I chose mid-May. If you aren’t having a whole lot of out of town guests, you could send them out even later. I think 6 to 8 weeks prior to the date is plenty of time.

    Date twin! Anyway, we’re sending them out at the beginning of May (that’s the plan, anyway). But we already sent out Save-The-Date Cards several months ago, so that might affect your calculations as well.

    I would send them in May.

    Our big days are pretty close to each other. Here is what I’m doing. My shower is May 15, and we’re planning to send the wedding invitations about the second week of May and asking for replies by June 25. I think May would be perfect for you! 🙂
