Hi Everyone –
I’m looking at a mid-March wedding (2010) and am curious as to when to send out invites. I’ve heard about the 8 week rule, but I have to give the facility a final head count 3 weeks out, so I’m thinking of having the RSVP’s due back to me around February 20th. I hate to send out the first week of January (seems to close to the RSVP date), but I also hate to send them between Thanksgiving and New Years. I have to admit, I’m an uber-planner, and personally would love to send them out in September (and cross it off the list), heck, I’d be thrilled to send them out now but am sending save the dates instead. Any suggestions on a good balance between holidays/too late/too early? I don’t want to send them so late that everyone feels like they were on a "plan b" list or cannot come, but I also don’t want to send so early that they forget about our wedding.
