I want all of my addressed and ready to go by the beginning of August, but we won’t put them in the mail until mid-August. We have many out of town guests so I wanted to allow a lot of time for them to get time off if they decided to join us ๐Ÿ™‚

Our will be out in early or mid August as well!  Our order will be placed next week and I am hoping to have a while to work on them.

I didn’t bother with STD – just gave verbal notifications to people. Also as we are having an overseas Destination Wedding I sent out the invites in February, so people can organise travel and time of work! ๐Ÿ™‚

We sent out our Save-The-Date Cards in mid April, and we’ll have our invites out early September. But we’ve already purchased them haha.

We’re also only inviting about 60 people, so we don’t need a big chunk of time to wait for all the RSVPs.

Wow I feel a little behind. I was thinking of sending mine out late September for our Thanksgiving weekend wedding. Should I send them out earlier? I just sent my STD’s two weeks ago, since our wedding is on a holiday weekend I figured I needed to give everyone a heads up.

Errrr…  haven’t really decided yet.  I already have them (stalked Michael’s for weeks to get them at 50% off), but haven’t designed any of the wording or inserts yet.  I’m up in the air on whether we need Save-The-Date Cards.  We have (percentage-wise) a lot of out-of-towners, but since it’s a small wedding with just those closest to us, they already know it’s coming up.  I think the invites will go out early to mid-September.

I’m in the design stage of our invites still (I’m drawing/watercoloring them). I plan to have them printed in June and start putting them together in July sending them out in the first week of august. We’re havign a Destination Wedding in Vermont so I want to give people plenty of time- I also have an A list and B-list so I need time to be able to send out B list invites if possible. We also have to have our final head count the first week in October for our venue.

@LizLemon:  I would check with your venue…sometimes like @Leonard2B: said, venues make you turn in an idea count relatively early.  Plus, you’ll probably have to allow some time to chase down the missing RSVP’s or if you have a “B” list, you’ll want to allow time to send and get their replies.

We’ll probably do early-mid August send out, and then they are due back Oct. 2nd for the Nov. 3rd wedding.  But, that’s when our block of room cancels so I wanted to keep it the same for simplicity reasons.  We may also invite a few more people depending on how the RSVP’s come back. ๐Ÿ™‚
