I am so flipping confused….I have heard and seen everything from 6 weeks to 3 months out.
I am getting married 7/14, my RSVP date is 6/23. About 40% are Out of Town guests, and yes, I did send Save-The-Date Cards. My room block at my hotel is almost 90% booked.
My invites are addressed, stamped, stuffed and ready to go.
I was going to wait until May 19, but everyone is telling me to mail them this weekend (exactly 3 months) or next weekend. Is this too soon?
We are inviting 197 guests, and I’m really hoping for around 175. If I send them now am I running the risk that more will RSVP “yes”? Am I running the risk more will RSVP “yes” and then forget or double book?
Someone please just tell me when to mail the damn things! LOL Thank you 🙂

Since you sent Save-The-Date Cards and people are already booking hotel rooms, I don’t see a need to mail them more than 8 weeks out. Sending them out to early risks people forgetting about it because they feel like it’s too far away to make plans or they just put it off and forget

2 months should be plenty. That gives them about a month to RSVP.

My wedding is june 16. My rsvp date is April 21 and I STILL haven’t finished sending out invites. yeah. I just send out the first batch friday but I ran out of “the couple is registered at ” cards so i am slacking. seriously slacking! I was gonna do the 3 month mark too cause I have 236 guests and it would give me time to call and contact no rsvp’s!

if it’s causing you anxiety, split the difference and send them out in 2 more weeks!

I think 8 weeks should be plenty of time. I am shooting for 8 weeks as well just in case mail gets lost or returned.

Thank you ladies …. now my next thought is, my shower is April 29, is it necessary that my invite go out before then??? If not, I will hold out until May I think 🙂

8 weeks is more than enough! I’m getting married two weeks after you (July 27) and we are sending out our invites at the same time (May 19th or so) and have RSVP date for June 30. I think if you have sent Save-The-Date Cards or if pretty much everyone knows, then three months is wayyyyy too long.
