I’m sending mine out 8 weeks before the wedding, with a cuttoff for RSVP’s a month before the wedding (giving them 4 weeks with the invite to RSVP).

@futuremrswucher:  

Not necessarily, it’s just a big wedding.  I’m inviting 379, and about 125 are from CA and we’re in NY so I needed to give myself time to follow-up on non-respondants.  It was actually my wedding planner who said to give the RSVP date as a month before, which would give me time to follow-up, have the seating arrangements done, get the escort cards printed and put in frames and have programs made.  I’m not a DIY’er, so I have to send everything out to be done, meaning I need a little more time for the planner to order things.

Send save the dates out 6 months before & invites 3 mo. before (according to the knot) I set my RSVP deadline exactly a month before the wedding.
