    I would keep the original. If you’re going to have to track people down anyways I would rather you have the extra week to do it.

    ETA: But send them as soon as you can. Don’t wait until the 3 week mark if you can give them 4 weeks.

    @SimplyMrsC:  I wouldn’t, but I also always RSVP as soon as I get the invitation. Did you send STDs? If you did I think that helps a lot because theoretically people should have marked their calendars already.

    I think as long as you give 2 full weeks, it’s fine!

    Invites typically go out 6-8 weeks before the wedding.  So if you get them out on or around Oct. 5, I think you should be just fine.  3 weeks is enough time.

    If you sent out Save-The-Date Cards then your  guests should already know that you’re getting married on Dec 1st, so the guests who may have to travel to attend your wedding will probably have already decided whether or not they’ll be able to make it. I really think you’re fine, and I agree with the PP that it’s better to allow yourself extra time to track down all the people who don’t RSVP!

    Stick with your original date, it’s plenty of time. You definitely want to leave some time to chase people down if needed. You might be lucky & have everyone RSVP right away, but even if you have a few you have to track down, it’s better to leave yourself more time. Don’t want any extra stress 🙂
