I wanted to check if you think this is enough time to send our invites....we are getting them made and will probably receive them 1st week in February and send them out asap once received....Our wedding is 22nd April, so will probably say RSVP by 03rd April (is that ok do you think).....
Is this plenty of time?? Confused

We are getting married on 18th March and have sent our invitations out now. The overseas ones went out before Christmas and we have put the RSVP date on as 3rd February so hopefully people will have replied by then.

That is heaps of time
Your guests will have almost two months to respond
Jan 3 2006, 04:13 PM
Sorry that wasn't really very helpful!
Maybe say 3rd March then people that are REALLY slow you might have to chase up. You don't want to be chasing people a day or two the wedding.

I think it should be enough time. I've been told you send them out generally 8 to 6 weeks before hand. You also have about 2 weeks to chase ppl up so i think it should be fine
6-8 weeks before your wedding date is the norm hon.
If you have overseas guests you might want to send them earlier (unless they already are aware of your date etc).

Ours are going out today, and we are getting married next month
Jan 4 2006, 07:55 AM
6-8 weeks is appropriate. We made our RSVP date exactly 4 weeks before the wedding, but depending on when your venue needs final numbers you could make it a week earlier to give you more time to chase up those who haven't replied

My wedding is in June, I'm sending the invites out approx 2 months before and our RSVP date is 3 weeks prior to the wedding, our venue needs final numbers 2 weeks before so that gives me a week to chase up the stragglers.

Our Wedding is the 25th February and we sent ours out early December to beat the Christmas Rush of mail. Our RSVP date is the 10th January, so we still have plenty of time to chase up late RSVP's and to get Place Cards Printed, Bonbonniere ordered etc. I dont want to be stressed out the last few weeks, hence an earlier RSVP date. Mind you with only a week before the RSVP's are due, I have only received about 80 of the 194 I sent out, so everyone better get their act together. I even put a Stamp on some of the ones I thought may be annoyed about having to pay 50cents.

we have to give final numbers a month before the day. I added two weeks for any chasing that needs to be done.
Jan 4 2006, 08:54 AM
I sent mine ages ago and yes thats enough time!
Jan 4 2006, 08:59 AM
THANKS GIRLS!!! Yes I think I might make my RSVP date a little earlier and I am not sure when our reception needs final numbers....so will need to double check that too. We are meeting with them next week hopefully to finalise so we can get invites printed...

i'm sending my invites out in the end of march and im getting married in june.
i'm making my RSVP date a month before the wedding so it gives me at
least 2 weeks to chase up late people before i need to give final numbers to the reception.

That timeline sounds fine. If you work out 8-10 weeks is the typical time to send them and that would be around the 11th of Feb at the 10 week mark. So I think it will be fine.
Jan 4 2006, 01:36 PM
we are getting married 21st May, I will start handing out invites mid march and have made the RSVP date exactly a month before leaving me plenty of time to chase up stragglers.

I agree with the other girls that is enough time but alter the RSVP date slightly. However it will be dependant on when your venues need the numbers for
