For my sister’s shower last year, I sent them out 6 weeks in advance.  That turned out to be WAY too far in advance because everyone replied YES (which then turned into a high pricetag for me lol).  Also, one of my neighbors showed up on June 12 (Saturday) instead of JULY 12 (Sunday) because the invites went out so early.  Oops!

I’d suggest 4 weeks out…that gives everyone time to plan ahead but not too much time that they will forget.

I sent them out last Saturday for a March 28th shower. I need Regrets Only by Mar.12 for a final headcount for the restaurant.

Four weeks is a good idea.
