I don’t think 9/1 is too early. More notice is always good!

I’m giving my friends 2-3 months, probably leaning towards closer to 3 months.  I am the first wedding of my group of friends.  Most of them are downright lost when it comes to wedding ettiquette, “Can I be a bridesmaid?” “Do I get an out of town guest gift?” “Well, if I dump my boyfriend I’ll just find someone to bring.”   Think about how much the final guest count affects not only the venue and caterer, but you.  If 10 people say no, that’s probably one less table you’d need and thus, 1 less centerpiece, fewer favors, table numbers, escort cards, etc etc etc. The more time, the merrier.

9/1 is almost cutting it close if you want an RSVP by 9/14, I think. You’ll probaly get a lot of stragglers. I’ve been considering sending mine out early August with an RSVP of 9/6, wedding 10/6.

So our date is Oct 20, 2012 but we are planning on sending out invites in June or July and RSVP by September 20. Keep in mind we have about 85% of our guest are OOT’ers.

It’s not too early! 6 weeks is usally a good time to get invitations out (considering you already sent STD’s). This give out of towners time to plan and book travel. I will be sending mine out late August. Wedding is October 12th!
