    I’m glad I checked here. For some reason I was thinking even January was too LATE. Phew. What’s the reason for doing it so close to the date (though don’t get me wrong, I’m relieved, but have been living under a rock for the past 12 months)?

    We’re planning on sending ours out by my birthday, which is April 6 🙂 For our June 7 wedding (probably early May RSVP). Fiance wants to send them out, like, yesterday, but I keep telling him it’s unnecessary. Plus we still need to finalize our design, get them printed, aassemble them, and hire a calligrapher! We sent our STDs in October, and about 1/3 of our guest list is Out of Town.

    Okay, I’m glad I read this. I did send out Save the Dates, but I’m very Type A and my guest list is a bunch of procrastinators, so after reading this I think I’m going to send them out 8 weeks prior to the RSVP date, which would be March 22. That’s still within the acceptable range, but makes me more comfortable.

    @Jezika:  What I’ve heard is you want to send them out as late as possible so people don’t lose/misplace them. It’s supposed to cut down on missing RSVPs. It seems a little counterintuitive to me, too, though.

    I think we will send them out between 8 and 10 weeks. I’m super nervous no one will send their RSVP back in time (my family is not goot at that stuff) so I want enough time to call everyone without freaking out about timing!

    @springbride23:  I feel the same way! Does March 22 sound good to you, too? Or is that too early?

    We sent out our save the dates in August! Over half of our guest list needed to make travel plans. Our invites will probably go out late march, early April. I was thinking an RSVP date of May 31 for our June 21 wedding… but by reading your posts, is that too  late?!

    @luluvohn:  Our response date is going to be May 17, I think. Our caterer needs the count 7 days before so we will probably send them around March 29? I don’t want to send TOO early but don’t want to be crunched for time with seating chart stuff, either. Freakin’ logistics.

    @springbride23:  Our RSVP date is also May 17 (I ordered them already because there was a sale). I think March 29 might be my bridal shower (my mom only told me it’s the end of March), so I think I’m either going to stick with March 22 or move it to April 5.

    I am sending the invites in march with a May response date. However, I do have a few out of town guests coming from the US ( i am in Canada) that I am sending invites to in the next week or so. I would rather give them too much time t make arrangements than not enough.

    Also take into consideration vendors who need a final head count.  My baker wants 30 days notice and the florist wants 3 weeks.  Since I am having a “destination wedding” where majority of guests don’t live I’m sending invites out in april with a reply date of june 1st for a july 7th wedding.  Around the 2 month mark flight prices jump up so I wanted to give them a an extra month where prices will be more reasonable.
