I sent mine out at 10weeks. I set a one month date. So that gave us another 6 weeks. However you will need new RSVP cards for group B since the date will expire too fast to get them back

I can’t offer much advice because we’re having the same issue..and we’re getting married the same date, have 170 guest, and a B list. Lol. We’re everything twins!

Mine are out already, mostly because 70% of guests are Out of Town and I have a B list as well. 180 guests to start (okay…183 to be exact!).

Why not give yourself more of a buffer to mid/late April?

I know mine are out super early, but we didn’t do STD’s and figured we might as well get them done and out!

I’m probaly waiting until late April-ish. 

If you have a B-list you’re going to need more time for A-list rsvps & to send out the second set of invites as well as have ample time for b-list rsvps, so keep that in mind.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to send mine out the first week of May, as they’ll take probably close to a week to get across the county, then My RSVP date is going to be June 9th. Exactly a month before the wedding, so I have time to contact any delinquent RSVPers hehe.  🙂

@xmofreshx:

Your timeline seems a little tight….what about a week earlier for a little more of a buffer? I am captain early invite so don’t take what I say too seriously, but if I was a B list invite I would definitely have plans for that weekend with that type of timeline.

We’re sending ours out mid-May.  I’m not sure how long we should give them either.

I just ordered the invitations this week and plan to send them out in April.

We’re sending ours out within the first two weeks of April.  Our RSVP date is June 5 for a July 2 wedding.

Our Wedding is July 10th (Yay weekend twin! lol) and I was thinking of sending them out in March… now I am thinking that is too early.
