We didn’t send out save the dates. Our wedding is September 14. I’m thinking we need any RSVP’s back by 3 weeks before the date to allow us to contact anyone who hasn’t responded and confirmed our numbers to venue/caterer the week before.
So I’m thinking that’ll put the last day to RSVP around August 22ish.
Would sending invites out around May 22 be too early? I want to send them out early enough for us to invite other people(mostly coworkers who aren’t necessarily expecting to be invited) when we get some no’s back on our RSVP’s. But I don’t want to send them out so early that people will put the date on the backburner and forget about it.

Honestly, if you set your RSVP date for Aug 22, sending out invites early probably won’t effect how soon you get responses. The only thing it will change is how long you wait for them :/ I could be wrong but that’s what I feel like would happen. I personally wouldn’t send them out that early, but I don’t think it’s crazy either. If you want to have more time to invite some extras once the no’s come in, I’d bring your RSVP date up. I had to give our venue our numbers 30 days ahead!–And we didn’t have any problems with guests telling us that was to early to give us a yes or no. I’m not suggesting 30 days, but merely pointing out that an earlier RSVP due date wouldn’t be to outlandish.
