My venue requires the same thing. As a result, my invites are going out in early July to get head count for mid-August. I honestly don’t like the idea of waiting until 2 months before the wedding anyway (it just seems to rushed for me and I’m a control freak…AND to top it off, we’re moving and the invites were printed with our current address) so invite etiquette (well, timing-wise anyway) is being thrown out the window.

If you need to get the numbers, send ’em out.

What? That’s insane. I feel for you having to make your guests make a decision by that early. Give them 4-6 weeks from receipt of invitation to RSVP deadline and make your deadline maybe 6 days before you have to give your numbers to the caterer.

They seriously need absolutely final numbers by almsot 2 months in advance? That’s really not cool, but I suppose there’s nothing you can do about it.
