- Wedding: June 2014
We sent out save the dates to all our guests in October for our June 7 wedding. We are in the process of designing and ordering our invitations. I know that traditionally they go out 6-8 weeks in advance. Our caterer doesnt need a final count until 1-2 weeks before the wedding, but our venue has to have payment for the bar 30 days out (May 7th). I don’t want to order too little or way too much alcohol so I’m trying to figure out when invites should go out. Initially I was thinking April 7th, which is 8 weeks out, with a May 21st deadline. Now I’m debating whether I should send them out sooner with a May 7th RSVP deadline so I have a head count to order alcohol. What do you bees think?
