6-8 weeks prior to the date your venue needs to get the final headcount

Also keep in mind how far your guests live from you. I had some invites take a week to 10 days to get to some US guests. US to London was faster than cross country. And Midwest addresses were the absolute worst.

Where are you from? As I get the feeling US brides send out their invites much closer to the wedding date. If your in the UK, I’d send them now as the norm tends to be 5/6 months before and normally the RSVP date is 2/3 months before.

libralove55:  yeah that is pretty standard. Your invites should go out about 8 weeks before the wedding date then. Our wedding is Sept 10, RSVP date Aug 12, and invites were send this last Thursday (July 7). I figured everyone will get them by July 12 (I hope so anyways)

My wedding is October 1, 2016 invites go out the last weekend of August and RSVP date is September 10, 2016. But everyone invited lives in state and its a small local wedding for about 70-80 people.

Our wedding is December 3 with a final head count date of October 29 (for some strange reason our venue, and many of the others nearby, require numbers 5 weeks prior to the day). We have made our RSVP date October 21 so that we have a week to chase up any late repliers and plan to send out the invitations in late September, giving guests about 3 weeks to respond. We have a couple of international guests and we’ll be sending their invites out a little earlier.
