Our wedding is on September 24, 2011. I am in the process of finalizing the invitations for printing and this questions pops up….. what date should I put as a respond by date?!? Our venue needs a final count 2 weeks before and I don’t want an procasitnators sending theirs in after the deadline.. I was thinking about September 1st? I guess it is better to be a little early. Any suggestions. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be making phone calls the weeks before 🙂 …they won’t be pleasant! ha

I think September 1st is perfect. My wedding is June 26th and my deadline is June 1st (which is quickly approaching and I still need A LOT of responses!)

I might back it up even more – especially if you have a large guest list or will be ordering or making things like favors, placecards or menu decisions based on the number of guests you have.
I would do August 24 or even a week earlier if you need it.
My date is 6/25 and I did 5/27… I’m still waiting on 56 people’s replies, and it doesn’t matter how many weeks you give them, many of them will still wait 🙂

Thanks for the suggestion! I have 230 people on my guest list so a month before woud be good idea too. The earlier the better! There will always be some that are the procastinators… ugh!
