I sent my Out of Town invites last week and I’ll be sending my in-town invites at the beginning of March, with an April 30th RSVP date.

Our wedding is May 21st. I’m planning on mailing them out at the end of March with an RSVP of April 30th. Everything I read says to mail them out 6-8 weeks prior and to have an rsvp of 2-3 weeks prior to the date.

Our invites are going out March 21st with a RSVP of April 23rd.  We sent save-the-dates back in October, so our guests have had plenty of time to plan for our wedding weekend.

I wanted to have them in the mail on Feb 14th, but that didn’t work out!  It’s now the 22nd and I hope Fiance has time to stuff them and put them in the mail this week.  We have many OTT guests and our room block will be released April 15th.  Our RSVP date is 29 April.  

Tessemasgirl:  If you have a B list, maybe send the invites the 1st week of March and hopefully you get some early no’s and therefore give your B list guests plenty of time to RSVP.

@Tswife4ever: We aren’t planning to send out B list but that’s about 4 weeks…hopefully, it’s enough time.

@Tswife4ever: If you have alot of in town guests- your dates are great! you may consider sending Out of Town guests a bit earlier- its peak wedding and travel time for spring break and such! Everyone is out of town for us! including us! so mine are in the envelopes and will be sent by the end of this week! i am soooo happy that its done! They have an RSVP of 4/9/11 but my FI’s family has habit of NOT RSVPing for anything so I gave myself some extra time to make phonecalls! and i figure you should know a month ahead of time if you are traveling across the country or not! get it together folks! 🙂

i agree with @ellabellaxo 

that leaves me a couple weeks to track down guests and we do not have a B list…..the less people, the better! —-i didn’t say that! :X ha ha.

We sent ours out the end of january and gave them until april 28th to send back rsvp’s for our may 28th wedding. The one reason we sent out so early is beacause we have been planning our wedding over 2 years now. We finally set the date at the end of 2010 for may of 2011 and my cousin out of the blue, meets a girl, dates 3 weeks and sends out wedding invites for his wedding the week before ours. Which kind of made me mad beacuse he knew we just picked a may date and knows we have been saving and planing for 2 years now.

Just out of curiosity (cuz I’m a May 22nd bride and wondering when to send out my invites too)  What is a B list?
