we did this. we mailed out the first batch of invites to people who lived further away who were on our A-list about 10 weeks before the wedding. We had online RSVP so it didnt take too long to received responses and then we mailed out a 2nd batch of invites around 7 weeks to the wedding and a final batch went out around 5 weeks. We also hand delivered some invites around 4 weeks. we were able to invite more people as others RSVPd no

The RSVP date should be 1-2 weeks before the date you have to provide firm #s to the caterers.

The invitations should go out 6-8 weeks before this date.

I’m sending my invitations about 12 weeks before the caterer needs firm #s. I know it’s a bit early but we have some firm B list requests and the more time that we can take to see who is coming and who isn’t, the better. But I know that’s not the norm… (but I had no STD and a short engagement…so everyone is different I suppose)
