@excitedtobeMRSF:  No earlier than December 1st.  8 weeks is plenty of notice for the RSVP deadline.  Any earlier than that and you risk people losing the invitation or forgetting to RSVP.

I agree–send them out the first week in January (after Christmas mail is done), and have an RSVP date of Feb 1st, so you can chase people down by Feb 8th to give numbers to your vendors!

If your venue/caterer needs a count by February 8, I would send out your invitations no later than December 7, with an RSVP date of no later than February 1.
