A good practice is to have the rsvp date set for at least 10-14 days ahead of the date you have to give final numbers to your caterer or venue. That leaves you with some time to contact those who don’t respond.

Our wedding date was 10/29/11 our RSVP date was 10/1/11, and they were still coming in two weeks after

i would go more like 30days before, July 7th, since they will probably be trailling in over the next couple weeks after your cut off date, You will have enough to do the two weeks before the wedding, you dont want to have to worry about RSVP’s too..

Most people I know have done an RSVP date of 30 days before and there are always some people that send it back after the due date!

Our wedding is March 25, and our RSVP date is Feb 20. Only due to the fact that I do not have much storage space and have to purchase the table ware, cups, food and such. We are doing it all on our own with a few items being cooked by others. Of course I made an event for it on Facebook as well and have a good idea on how many will be attending.

Great choice, hopefully that being a holiday people will remember it as a trigger to reply! lol We made my RSVP due date the day of my shower, so it gives them one last opportunity to say and in person! =)
