I don’t think waiting a day or two after Christmas will sidestep the craziness. The postal mayhem seems to continue through New Years.

In your place I would send them out well before Christmas – like Dec 8th.

OK. Around here people don’t usually get back to normal until the second week in January. So they might still miss it. I think if you only give them four weeks, you’ll be chasing a lot more rsvps.

I think we gave our guests like 3 weeks or less…it was kind of by accident…but we have heard from ALMOST everyone…sans like 3 couples/families who we know are coming.  I think it would be just fine.  I would build in some time to follow up with non-responders…but that’s whether you gave 3 years to rsvp or 1 day…some people just won’t.

Are you sending STDs?

Maybe you could send them earlier?
I think 4 weeks in advance is pushing it a little, unless you are doing rsvps, even then it seems a little time crunched.

We are sending out our Save-The-Date Cards 1 year in advance [this october], and invites out 5 or 6 months in advance, with rsvp requested 30 days before.
