We had the same issue.  Our blocks of rooms weren’t filling up and we didn’t have that many RSVPs.  Our coordinator told us to still hold off on sending the invitations.  Since you have an 8 week before deadline, you might want to send your invites at about 12 weeks.  Also word of mouth through your parents may kick some people in gear to find their rooms.

since you sent Save-The-Date Cards, i wouldnt send the invites early. we were in a similar situation, with most of our guests traveling. if i were you, i would sit down and get a feel for who would likely be traveling and staying in the hotel. make a list of those folks, and enlist the help of your mom or bridesmaids to *casually* mention the room block situation. they can also direct people to the website at that time too. that way your mom, etc. can report back to you and ease your worries.

I don’t think you need to send out invites early at this point.  If your STD’s have only been out for 2 weeks, people might just be slow on actually logging on.  Can you send out an email from your wedding website?  Or send out an email from your personal account with a link to your wedding website?  We did all our RSVPs online, and when I started freaking out that no one had RSVP’ed, I sent out the link.  We had like 30 RSVP’s just that day!  Sometimes people just need a little reminder or have the work done for them in order to do what they are supposed to (although I guess I’ll never understand why logging on to a website is so much work.  🙂
