I think one month is pretty standard, and I don’t think out of town guests should affect that.

3-4 weeks before the wedding is typically when they are due. It allows you plenty of time to tally the results for your vendors as well as contact anyone who “forgets” to reply. The fact that you have guests from out of the area is irrelevant.

3-4 weeks should be fine, depending upon how early you have to give your head count to the caterer.  There may be some stragglers you have to run down who didn’t respond by the RSVP date so keep that in mind too.

It’s about 1 month away for the RSVP deadline, but we placed ours at more like 6 weeks. We also sent the invitations early since we didn’t want to send them out during Christmas (we sent out before). We knew we would have to make phone calls, and are planning to begin that this month. Our wedding is Feb 27th.

I think that a month out should be fine for out of town guests.  Have you already sent out STDs?  If you aren’t planning on doing them, I would send the invitations out more than the traditional 4-6 weeks so that people can have more time to plan to travel.

We’re doing destination and did Save the Dates… so we asked for them a couple months before the wedding. We figured people knew if they were traveling or not.
