I was married last July, and I remember I picked up my invitations on May 21st, so they went out after that.  They say mail them out 4-6 weeks before your wedding date.  So the middle of May may be fine for you.

I will be mailing mine out in the beginning of June I think – but I’m at the end of the month.

We’re mailing ours out a bit early, I guess… in mid March. A lot of our family members live far away (on the other side of the country), so we want to give them enough time to plan their summers and let us know if they can come. We’d like to have an early RSVP date, so we can invite other friends who we would LOVE to have there, but just can’t afford and don’t have space for if most of our family members can come.

I think we’re going to send ours out at the end of April. We didn’t do any save-the-dates so I wanted to send them out slightly early.

I think the first week in May is our target. This is due to needing to finalize seating chart, make escort cards, and give numbers to the caterer. So our RSVP date will probably be the 1st or 2nd week in June

My goal is April 30th. Our invitations are being ordered now, I will assemble them by mid-March, then we will have the addressing fun in late March/early April. Then I will drop them in the mailbox on the way to work.

I am thinking I will send mine out the end of may. The hotel where I blocked off rooms will only hold them unitl June 15th, so I want everyone to have time to book. When should the RSVP by date be? I was thinking the first or second week of July, but I am not sure.

Hopefully by the end of April. Both me and my Fiance get super busy with our jobs in May so the earlier the better for us! I am getting anxious to order them though! Our RSVP is a month before. That way there is lots of time to chase the slackers down!

I’m thinking first week of June – all of our guests except one live in our city so nobody will need to book travel/accommodation. My RSVP date is June 20.

I think this should give people time to organise time off work if they work Saturdays, and our guests who play football can let the coaches know they can’t play.

I think we will be sending ours out end of April/beginning of May.  Most people will be traveling from out of town so I want everyone to have plenty of time to plan out the weekend.

I sent Save The Dates out in December and I’ll send my invites out probably the last week of May!

@MrsMath:  If your hotel block is only available until June 15th, I would probably send them out a little earlier in May.  In bride thinking two weeks is plenty of time for someone to book their hotel room, but I don’t think guests are really as good at getting stuff like that done! I’m getting married the day before you and I’m probably going to send them out at the end of April/beginning of May. My hotel block is available until June 26.
