I’d say 3 weeks is generally standard.

I’m planning on one month.

As far as which sounds better…for what? the wording on the invite or the RSVP? Those are two different dates so I’m not positive what you meant.

@Cadence:  For your RSVP card, I would go with “Kindly reply by the first of May” and write the year out on your invites only.

I do think 3 weeks is enough time, but just be aware of the date your venue needs your final numbers.  For example, our wedding is June 2 and the venue doesn’t need our numbers until May 31.  Our RSVP date is May 3 (and says “Kindly reply by”).  Good luck!
