So I haven’t gotten my invitations back from the printer yet, but am going to send them out on the third week of april, with the rsvp by May 24, for our wedding on June 21… Is that too late? I didn’t realize this was even late at all until I came on here and saw that people who were also getting married in June are already recieving their RSVPs back.. Now I’m stressed out 🙁 I did address all the envelopes, so when they are done, all I have to do is mail them out but still.. I’m kind of worried now.

Eh, I think you’re fine. Did you send Save the Dates? I have a wedding in late June that I didn’t get an invitation for yet.

I JUST sent out my invitations this week, like on Thursday, and my RSVP date is may 20. I think what we both did is fairly normal. Send invites approximately 2 months before wedding, expect RSVPs back 1 month before wedding (give or take). No worries!!

@future_mrs_s: Totally fine. I’m sending my invites out mid May for our July 13 wedding. I think too much more than that and people lose them or forget.

You’re definitely fine. You are actually right on schedule, even a little early. It isn’t wise having RSVP dates that early, because plans can change, and people may have to decline because they aren’t sure if they can make it, but they have to send the RSVP back already, if that makes sense? Don’t worry about it.

@future_mrs_s: Eh you’re fine. I mailed mine this past week with an RSVP date of May 18th and my wedding is on June 8th. I’ve heard 6-8 weeks is normal for invites so you are right in that range.

@future_mrs_s: I would say that is late. Some people wouldn’t have time to make/change plans or request days off from work.

It should be fine considering people should already know if they plan on going to your wedding or not. It’s either: yes, this is ***’s ONE day event or no, I’ll be dead. 😉

@Aquaria: I disagree. She is giving them two month’s notice! I don’t know of any workplace that requires more than that to get time off. OP, if anything I would say it’s early! Most people I know have the RSVP date like two weeks before the wedding since not everyone has their work schedule before that point. But I definitely wouldn’t worry about it being late!

Nope, you’re right on schedule. Invites should go out 6-8 weeks, with RSVPs due 1 month out. You’re just fine.
