I’m planning on sending in June. Out of town guests have already been told about the date and we’ve gotten some pretty firm yes/no replies already, so I’m not overly concerned about sending them earlier. If they’re ready earlier, sure, if not, not. I guess this means I have to get serious about finishing up designing them huh?

hi date twin! we’ve decided to send them out late june with a “rsvp due date” of late august… just so it’s not too early, but still enough time for ppl to get their RSVP’s in on time for our tasting!

We’re doing first round OOTers  who most likely will RSVP no (about 25 invites) out early June with RSVP date of mid July which is when the rest of the invites are going.

Probably send them out in June and most of our guests are Out of Town. They already got a save-the-date a few days ago so it levels the playing ground for Out of Town people.

Hi there! I’m not a September 2010 bride (I was a September 2007 bride). My wedding was on 9/1, and I sent my invites out right after 4th of July. I had a ton of out of towners, but I also had save the dates sent out in the beginning of the year since it was over Labor Day weekend.

Just keep in mind that you don’t want to send the invites out TOO early (people tend to lose them the earlier you send them out) and the standard 6-8 weeks still works in most cases! Good luck, and September is a wonderful month to get married in!

I’ll probably try to send them 2 – 2.5 months before the date, so mid to late July.  We’ve already sent Save-The-Date Cards so I figure that accounts for any out of town people.  I might lean toward 2.5 months because my block of hotel rooms is released 60 days before the wedding so I want people who didn’t pay attention to the STD (which directed them to our website) to still have that available.

I think sending invites 3+ months out is too early (at least that’s been my thought as a guest when I received invites that far out).

2 months for me, with 1 month until RSVP date. We’re having a smaller wedding so have a general idea of who’s coming or not anyway.

We have a lot of Out of Town guests who are making travel plans now so it’s going to seem redundant to send them an invite this summer but I guess such is life. My goal is to get them ordered next week but that seems a bit idealistic since they are not designed which means I will most likely need to order them and have them shipped to my mom and hope she can mail them to me for send out circa early June. I really wish email invitations were acceptable but I just don’t think they would get the respect they deserve. We’re doing an email RSVP so my fingers are crossed on that one. We, of course want to invite more people than our venue can hold so we’re planning to go out in two rounds once we get RSVPs in.

I think we’re also doing late June/early July, but I’m not sure when the RSVP date will be. We just mailed Save-The-Date Cards this morning (yay!!!).

I think we’re going to do our 1st round at the end of May/start of June. Mostly the ones that are traveling far – overseas, cross country, etc.

We’re doing the standard 8 weeks, but we’re also having a smaller(ish) wedding and with no “B” list.

We are also doing the standard 8 weeks eventhough we are getting married over labor day weekend and Out of Town because we sent out our STD’s 8 months ahead of the wedding.

I’m sending mine out in mid-May, but mostly just to ensure that out of town guests (read: guests that have to fly from Manitoba to Alberta) have time to make arrangements and save.

Plus, I’m just that gosh darn excited 😀

We’re shooting for 8 weeks.  We have a lot of OOTers, but also sent Save-The-Date Cards.
