No, it’s not a big deal at all. The biggest risk with sending them late is that people will already have made other plans. But since you sent out Save-The-Date Cards, that takes care of that.

On the flip side, sending them too early means they are likely to be put aside/ignored/lost, and actually reduces the odds that you’ll get the RSVPs back.

Also, next week is still mid-April, so they should have more like 5-6 weeks, right? That is PLENTY of time!! I’ve never heard of a 3-month guideline. I’m assuming that is an old guideline used before ‘save the dates’ became popular.

Don’t sweat it! You’re fine.

We just got an invitation to a wedding that’s in a month and a week, and they gave 2 weeks to RSVP. I think you’ll be okay, especially since you sent out Save-The-Date Cards. I actually have heard more often sending invites 2 months ahead o f time- in which case you’re perfectly okay.

(We’re having a similar timeline to yours, send out invites next week, allow a little over a month to RSVP, and then a little over a month till to the wedding from that deadline)

My wedding is July 10, and my RSVP deadline is June 10. I am planning sending my invites out no later than May 2, and that’s 6 weeks. Personally I think that’s enough time, especially since we sent out save the dates. I’ve receive invites with a lot less time than that!

Actually, invites are often sent off 6-8 weeks ahead of time, so a quick RSVP deadline is fine, especially since you sent out STDs!
