Did you send a STD with booking info?

Does your wedding website have rsvp alerts or let you send an email?

Is there no way to adjuset the deadline?  It’s pretty strange to expect your guests to book their rooms before receiving an invitation.

I think you need to send the invitation early. People won’t think it’s weird when they see the block cutoff. Also, you can’t be sure they will have gone on your website.

I agree with prior posters. You definitely need to invite your guests in a sufficient amount of time prior to the date by which they need to secure their accommodations.

I’d be sending the invites before Christmas anyway, especially as guests have to travel. 

I’m in the UK getting married at end of April and we’re sending the invites before Christmas! It’s notmal here to send them months in advance 🙂

We are doing a Destination Wedding as well. I’ve read you should send the invites 4-6 months in advance anyway so you can send them in nov-dec and you’ll still be ok!
