Either 3 or 4.  I decided to do 4 weeks prior so that I would have 2 weeks to get the stragglers called.

Mid-Feb seems a bit early for invites to a June wedding. have you decided against STDs?

That sounds fine but I did 1 month before…..  People will mail their RSVPs on the last day and you may not get it until a week later.  I gave a week’s grace and then I started calling.  Just my experience.

I would do a month prior. It gives you lots of time to track down the people who don’t RSVP. I also think February is a good time to send them out, since it gives people ample time to book hotels, etc.

We’re in the same boat as you, and are following the same mailing/RSVP schedule: invites mailed mid-January, RSVP deadline a month prior to the wedding. Our caterer also needs the final head count 2 weeks before the wedding, so this allows for a 1 week grace period and 1 week to make the calls. But, we won’t need to do the latter, amirite? *wishful thinking* 😉

I think mid-feb makes sense since you are doing a destination wedding. I’m having a Destination Wedding and sending my invites out 5 months in advance.
