@mrstaylortobe:  good question, I’d love to see other brides answer… The Knot says 8 weeks is ideal but we’ll be sending out atleast 3 months prior because of our location.

@mrstaylortobe:  I sent mine more like 10 weeks ahead b/c our date was so close to a holiday: the 4th; as yours will be too fellow July bride! πŸ™‚ So late April early May would be fine!

I’m aiming for April as well just because most of our guests are from out of town & from what I’ve been told would appreciate a little head time to finalize their plans. We sent out our STD’s back in  Sept./Oct.

I was just debating this myself…I am going to send out mid april, and request they have their responses back to me by mid may. I know that is early, but considering my date, I think people appreciate knowing the details early so they can make arragements.

We are debating this too! I’ve decided on a June 28th RSVP date, but can’t decide whether or not to change that or not. Where are all the July 2013 brides at?! πŸ™‚

@moor1238:  That’s our plan as well. We aren’t doing any save-the-dates so we’ll send out the invites mid to late April with the RSVP date June 1st.

I’m planning on sending mine out in February which is about 5 months notice but its due to my wedding being semi-destination (1.5 hr for most guests) and a lot of people are staying the night so I wanted them to have the info early

We are planning on sending them out the first week of May… the RSVP date is June 13th, one month before the big day.  I will admit though, I am getting a little nervous that its a little too late though?  We are having an invite list of 250 people and our Jack and Jill is booked for May the 11th.  To read how many RSVP’s don’t come in and to track them down will take longer and we have to confirm the caterer on the 13th of June too.  At least they are personal friends of ours, but still… I am nervous about this and maybe start sending them out early???  Advice here please… thanks.

I’ll be tring to get ours out before the end of April with an RSVP date of June 8th. We sent Save-The-Date Cards in the beginning of February (a little late from what I had intended, but Fiance couldn’t make a decision on the design….lol) but I am stricter with the invitations. No later than April 20. (2 months before the RSVP date, which is 1 month before the wedding date). 

hope this helps! πŸ™‚
