I would say 4 weeks just to be on the safe side. Your’s will be a little late but I wouldn’t worry about it. I have gotten invites a week before the shower and still attended it.

my wedding invites went out like a week before my shower. I think my shower invites went out about 7 weeks before.. If I received an invite next week to a shower on May 5, I might think that it’s a little on the late side. But you will have people who won’t be able to make it even if you send it out 10 weeks in advance

We’re in the same boat. My Maid/Matron of Honor ordered the invites on Monday and will have them sent on Saturday (no idea who does this speedy shipping!)

My shower is May 5th or 6th…I honestly can’t remember! And the wedding is June 9th.

Ideally, they could have gone out earlier this week, but I don’t think a week makes that big a difference.

3 weeks is a bit tight, but doable. Will many people be coming in from out of town? If not, 3 weeks is probably plenty. What’s done is done, don’t worry about it!

@Mrs.DBee:  only local people were getting invites for my shower… of the 98 invites given only 40 were invited to the shower…. we will see how many will show..

Mine is May 12th, and they’re going out this week. A couple of people already know the dates (like the Moms), but I’m also hoping it’s not too late- thought the girls were sending them out last weekend. Oh well!
