I’m thinking around mid-August (6 weeks before) is okay. That’s pretty much the norm here. I have to get thinking about designs for them soon because I’m making them myself and just sending to a printers, eek!

We sent Save-The-Date Cards in April.   Invites will go out early July w/ an August 15 response date.  I have a B list, so we need to have time to invite them as well.  Looking at the others, I hope 8/15 isn’t too early, but this is also a “cushioned” date.   Hmmm.   I may need to ask for the invitation to be edited…..**adding another item to “the list”**

@starz88962:  We will be mailing our invites out in early August and requesting RSVP responses by the beginning of September.  Today I started coming up with the invitation wording (we are making our own cards)

Hi,

 

I sent out Save the Date Magnets in January, as I will have friends and relatives coming from o/seas. 

 

I ordered my invited from Vistaprint Aust. this week and expect to get them back from the printers early June.  I will send the overseas invites out immediately after and the local and interstate ones by mid-July.

we sent ours out super early – s.t.d went out Nov last year and invites went out March/April this year. (OH wanted to send them out in JAN!!)

we have alot of family in various parts of the world and flights arent cheap – wanted to give them as much notice as possible to be able to make it…

also – alot of our friends/family are teachers, so again, wanted to give them as much notice as possible to book days off/make arrangements. wedding is the day after schools finish for autumn break and i know alot of teachers go away in half terms 🙂

as for our RSVP date – i have put 01/09/13. may be considered a little early but im too much of a control freak to be waiting til only a week or two before the big day to find out who is coming!! LOL!!

I already sent our Save-The-Date Cards in mid-April. Our invites are going to go out late August.

Mid-August for us!

Etiquette dictates 8 weeks before…but FI’s brother is getting married almost exactly 8 weeks before us and I think it would be a bit rude of me to send out invites on their wedding weekend.

I have 3 lists. One is for other country guests which are family so I’ll be sending those out next week and giving them to July 1st to reply.

Then my second list will go out at the beginning of June.

And if any other room left then we will pick people from the third list – which are likely co-workers and then just hand them out.

We sent out Save The Date’s on February 1st.

We just ordered our invitations last week and I’m currently in the midst of going back-and-forth with my Etsy person over fonts/customization.  I plan to mail them mid-July.

@Beautiful Bluegrass:  

 

Whew! I havent even finished ordering miine yet! We are sending ours out early September. Our save the dates are already out, I think we deserve a little break though considering we just got engaged in May and really only are having a 5 month engagement!
