that’s not too late. april 8 is 9 weeks before my wedding, so that’s when they’ll be going out. i’ll send the international invites 2 weeks before that.

Hey date twin…it’s funny I was going to say that’s a little early!  I was going to send mine at the end of April (April 23rd-ish) and have an RSVP date of June 4, but maybe that’s too late.  I always heard 6-8 weeks before the wedding….now I’m thinking I should send sooner!

@OhBeeHive84:We’re having an RSVP date of May 20th for our July 3 wedding, and they probably will go out May 1 (well, April 30–the post office said to avoid the 1st and 15th because of all the paychecks they take less care with individual letters).

That is definitely not too late for your wedding!

My wedding is also June 25th, and my mom wants to send invitations out on May 1st, but I was thinking a few weeks earlier than that.

Depending on how long it takes me to address them, ours are going out approx 12-13 weeks before the wedding, with RSVPs due approx 6-7 weeks before the day.

I hope not.  Our wedding is June 26th and we have a reply date of June 1st.  We’re thinking of sending them out sometime in mid-April.

When do you have to give a final guest count to your venue/caterer?  I worked backwords from that date and gave myself an extra week to follow up wth guests who haven’t responded. I think your timeline sounds good!

Date twins!  I am probably going to send mine out on April 25, with a reply date of May 25.  That way people have a month to respond and I should know a head count at least three weeks before the wedding (I’m counting on having to track down a few slackers.)

I don’t think that is too late. Some people send them too early, IMO.

I am sending mine next week! Just because I am visiting home them so it is a conventient time to get everyone’s addresses from my mom.

I was thinking I’d send them out April 15th, which is just about 8 weeks before the wedding.  Is this too late?!  Save the dates went out in January.

I was planning on sending them out 8 weeks before the date with an RSVP date of 4 weeks before the date.

I’m sending mine April 1st with a May 15 RSVP. It seems perfect to me!

I plan on getting them out at the beginning of April assuming that everything is going as planned.  I think 2 months is the typical amount, but I’m giving myself an extra week or so, and I set my RSVP date to May 21, so I can make time for stragglers Smile.  We’re almost there ladies – it’s crazy!
