We are getting married on September 7th, and our RSVP date is August 17th. We didnt send save the dates, though many of our guests already know when the wedding is.
We are inviting around 100 guests and about half of them would have to travel for the wedding.
Do you think it is too early to send our invations out? 8 weeks is technically July 13th.

I love getting weddding invites earlier. It lets me plan, save money, organize my work (which often books things 6 months in advance). Only issue on your end is you may have to follow up with more people if they forget to RSVP

I think two months is very standard. Lately we have been getting wedding invitations 3-4 months in advance. I’ve always thought that the six-eight week rule is super short notice with catering deadlines to consider, and especially if your guests did not receive save-the-dates.

I am getting married the same day and I sent mine out 2 weeks ago. I couldn’t wait lol.

I sent mine out 8 weeks in advance! I know some will say 4-6 is standard, but if the wedding requires travel and/or if you haven’t sent out Save-The-Date Cards, I think that 8 weeks is very reasonable. I did Save-The-Date Cards and still sent my invites out 8 weeks in advance because it required cross-country travel for about half of our guests.

I never understand what is ‘bad’ about sending out the invitations before 6-8 weeks. I’m in the UK where it’s common to send them out before that.
My wedding was a similar date to yours last year and I’d already sent them out by the end of April with RSVPs all in by the end of July. It caused no problems and had many advantages.

We are attending a wedding on September 1 and we received the invite about a month ago. Not too early at all!

All weddings I’ve been to send the invites 6 months in advance. I know this isn’t the standard on weddingbee but I think now is definitely time especially if so many of your guests have to book travel and time off work.

Not too early at all. I think I sent ours out 2-3 months in advance as we knew some of our guests would be flying in and needed to plan for it. It’s nice for people to see when the wedding is and get it into their calendars.

I’d send them now. I’m invited to a September wedding and already thinking they should be sending out the invites soon so I can plan accordingly.

alexam : My cousin is getting married on September 28th in Maui (most of the family is from California, so it’s a lot of travel as well) and we received her invitations a few weeks ago it not a couple months ago. I don’t think it’s too soon (or too late, I don’t mean to imply that either!) as long as it feels right to you and you have all the necessary info to send them all out. Good luck!

I would send them ASAP. My husband and I just got an invite for a Sept 22nd wedding and we were in the middle of planning a trip to see my SIL but since we got the invite before we booked we were able to plan it for a different wedding and RSVP yes to the wedding.
