@sillysillybee:  Yes, that’s plenty of time.  I’m kind of suprised how early some folks on this thread are sending, but it all depends on when the caterer needs the numbers.

Our wedding is May 24, and we’re planning to send out our invites around March 19, so they get where they’re going about 9 weeks weeks before the wedding.  RSVP date is April 30, so they’ll have about 5 weeks to respond.  Plenty of time!

May 24th. Makes me nervous seeing how many people have already sent theirs! Ours are going out next weekend probably and our RSVP date is 4/22. I think that is plenty of time? It’s over a month, which is pretty standard here.

Our wedding is June 14th and we’re sending them out next week so that most people will get them around March 14th (: It’ll be such a relief when they’re sent out!

I thought the rule was 6-8 weeks?!

I am hopefully sending mine out by the end of next week (haven’t seen them yet…in the mail?). And I’m on the 24th, orginal RSVP date April 30? That gives 3 weeks of tracking down, including finals week when I have time to stalk people.

MissOtter:  Yeah, it is 6-8 weeks, but I can never remember if that’s from the event date or the RSVP date, and people seem to have different schools of thought on that here.

We got our invites addressed this weekend (thanks to my mom; I would’ve been writing them alone forever otherwise) and I had planned on sending them around March 19, but then went “eh, they’re done, I’ll just send ’em” yesterday.  Locals may get theirs today, and I would think all of our guests will have them in hand by the end of the week!

So excited to see our online RSVPs start to come in.

Yikes, my wedding is May 31 and I was planning to send invitations to out of town guests this week and locals in two weeks.  You all are making me nervous now! My RSVP is May 10…am I waiting too long?  I thought my dates were early still!

MoopersMom:  You’re totally fine, especially with a May 10 RSVP date.  We’re May 24 and just sent this week.  Your guests will have plenty of time to respond.
