    Wow, you’re on top of things! My son’s birthday is the first week of June, too, and I haven’t even started thinking about planning a party lol. 

    But, to answer your question, yeah, I do think it’s too early. Particularly for an evite. I would forget about it before the date. I would just casually spread the info by word of mouth to give people a heads up & then send the “formal” invitation later.

    Any chance you could email a “save the date” to your guests, saying that June is a busy month but you are planning to have a party June 2? As an out of towner who still attends family b-day parties, I always apprecoate a heads up.

    The beginning of summer can be hectic so if you want to make sure that people can write the date down, I would send an informal email with an evite to follow giving the details of the party.

    I would send an invitation to such an event 3 weeks in advance. If you send it to early, people are likely to forget.

    I think you can send them. It’s only 5 weeks from now. I don’t think it’s too early.

    Nope. June is right around the corner. You are sending invites to families with kids. School will be getting out and parents will be rushing around. Trust me, right now is not too early.

    Signed,

    A teacher and mom 🙂

    I’d say NO….As a child of a 7 person family, I know my mom would have MAJORLY appreciated being invited to a birthday party a month or more in advance. She had a handful of kids and each needed to be somewhere all the time so the more time she got to plan , the better…

    I do advise sending reminders every 3 weeks though from here until then! So 2 reminders?

    I think a regular invite would be OK, but an evite seems too soon. Mostly because regular invites you can pin on the fridge, etc, so that you remember, but in five weeks an evite is going to be way down in my inbox.
