I’m an August 11 bride, and I’m planning on sending my invites out sometime next week.  My rsvp date for this batch is July 11.  So, about 2 months before the day.  Based on my timeline, your timeline is on track.  I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

Someone asked this yesterday. I answered them this way: My friend is an August 11th bride and won’t be sending hers out for a couple more weeks. Although, my August 12th friend (it’s going to be a crazy weekend) sent hers out end of April. So I think you’re still in the Good.

@Mrs.em2hurley:  I’m not planning on sending mine out until mid or end of june either!    You only need to send them out 8-6 weeks in advance!  I’ve noticed a lot of August brides on here have sent theirs out on here, don’t panic!  You still have plenty of time!

Mine will be sent out today or Monday, just when I happen to go to the post office but they are in the car now lol . I’m August 25th, and rsvp date is July 9th.  I’m giving myself plenty of time to track people and provide numbers for my timeline for vendors.  I gave myself June 1st as the send out date from the start and I surprisingly followed it lol

We have some friends getting married August 3 (DH is a groomsmen as well) and we got their invite a few weeks ago, though many people have to travel for the wedding so I think that’s a part of it going out a little early. We had the STD well over a year in advance though so we weren’t stressing about getting the invite!

My friend is getting married August 11 and I got hers at the end of March. SERIOUSLY. There is definitely such a thing as TOO early. And if your wedding is local, I’d agree with the PP that any time in the next couple weeks would be good. Mostly depending on your RSVP by date, because you want to give people time to respond.

We’re getting married August 31st and I just ordered mine from Vistaprint. They should be here in 12 days or so.  I plan to immediately address them and send them out, but that’s still no less than 2 weeks from today.

My wedding is August 11th and mailed it on May 28th and for people to reply by July 1st. I know it is a bit early but I just wanted to be done with.

I just mailed mine on this past Tuesday.  Already got 2 RSVP’s back.  My RSVP date is July 7th. My room block at the hotel expires June 18th so people have a little over two weeks to book a room.

As long as they’re sent at least 2 months to 6 weeks in advance, you’re fine…no worries Laughing

Invites go out 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date…your wedding is the end of Aug so send your invites the end of June. No need to send them out 3 months ahead…that just gives people too much time to forget to RSVP.

I still haven’t made our invitations, but we’re having a super intimate wedding so everyone that’s invited already knows the date. I’ll probably finish them and send them at the end of the month.
