I am setting the RSVP date for 3 weeks prior to my wedding. I was really unsure about this myself, but I want to have the maximum amount of time possible to come up with seating charts.

I set the RSVP due date for the a-list for 6 weeks before the wedding to allow enough time to invite the b-list. The b-list RSVP due date is 2 weeks before the wedding.

I set ours a month prior and I’m so glad I did. I’m currenly 9 days past the due date and still have 8 outstanding. I had to track down 60 people. Madness.

Mine are due 6 weeks prior…and I’m going to mail them out about 2 months prior (so they’ll have about a month to respond).

Find out when your venue needs a head count and give yourself a couple of weeks before that to track down the people who don’t respond.

I agree with Katie.

I found out when my count was due to the caterer and set the date a week before that so i could track down those who have not responded.

Yes, my venue needs final numbers 3 days prior (so soon!). Anyway, I made my RSVP 3 weeks before my wedding. Hopefully that will give me enough time to track down any delinquents and do seating charts – YUCK!

We’re sending out our invites rather early, as we have some international guests.  Our RSVP date is approximately 3 weeks after the invites go out and about six weeks prior to the wedding.  Most people already know if they are coming or not (save the dates went out ages ago, so it’s not a surprise) and have already made their travel arrangements.

The other things to consider are any projects reliant on an accurate head count/guest list (escort cards, place cards, seating arrangements, etc.).
