Wedding date is September 15th!  Invitations that I designed are literally being printed right this second at the print shop….eeek!  Need to purchase my envelopes still, and make envelope liners.  Also need to have my stamps made for the belly band, and decide if i wanna use bakers twine too.

I plan to mail them out end of June/early July.

RSVP date by August 18th.

We are getting close ladies!!

In hindsight, I probably could have done this better…. we sent our invites out AGES ago, probably around the time that most other September brides were just getting ready to send STD’s.  We have a lot of people traveling (about 30% will come from overseas and another 40% from out-of-state) and they all pretty much already knew when the wedding is, so we figured make it official to let them start booking their flights.  But now we are having a hard time dragging RSVP’s out of people; even though there’s still 3+ months to go, the hotel block contract will be at its drop dead date in 6 weeks or so, and we’re waaaaaay short, but I don’t really know yet how many “second tier” guests from out of town we can invite.

FWIW I don’t regret not having Save the Date cards; I really dislike them. I just wish we’d held on to the invites a little longer before sending them.

Sent out the invites last week because I wanted the wedding invitations to go out before the bridal shower invites, which are going out next week. Our RSVP BY date is Aug 4th.

Basically, you can send out September invites any time between now and August.

My wedding is Sept 22 and was planning on July 1, but I got invitations in the mail yesterday for a wedding the weekend after ours, so now I’m worried I should send them out sooner. They’re all ready except addressing the envelopes, which will take me a few afternoons to do. Maybe late June.

Invitations will be going out in mid-June.

RSVP date is 7/27. We made it a little early because we have a List B (gasp!).

Oh man this always confuses me. Our date is September 22 and I think I want to set Sept. 1 as the RSVP date so I have time to chase people, which leads me to think I should send them out at the end of June?!

Wedding: Sept. 22

RSVP Date: July 28th (I wanted to allow a week for stragglers, then ample time for my Future Mother-In-Law to track down the people in the groom’s family who don’t respond. Plus my florist wants a table count 4 weeks ahead of time? Less stress closer to the wedding so let’s do it!)

I was planning on sending the invitations out at the end of June. But, maybe I can/should send them earlier? I got my envelopes back from my caligrapher on Sunday.
