How far in advance should the RSVP date be?

Wedding on 9/18 and invites are going out next week. When should my RSVP be?

Re: How far in advance should the RSVP date be?

I would say you shoud be ok with the beginning of Sept. I am completely anal and would want to know early (to call those who haven't responded) so I would go for the end of August...but that's just me!! Good Luck!

Re: How far in advance should the RSVP date be?

First I would check with the caterers and see when they wantt a final head count, and make it two weeks earlier than that.

If they are not asking for a head count, I would say 3 weeks prior to the wedding for your own sanity.

I had a ridiculous amount of out of towners, so I set my RSVP date 6 weeks ahead of the wedding & sent them out 3 months ahead.

my RSVP date was set for exactly one month before the wedding....it was easiest to figure out that way

Mine was for 7/1, but we still have a lot outstanding. And people cancelling when finding out exhusbands are going to be there. Ugghhh...don't get me started! Don't even get me started!

I agree! My RSVP date is 3 weeks before.

Re: How far in advance should the RSVP date be?

my RSVP is October 1st... a little over a month in advance...

we chose that date b/c that will be our 5 yr anniversary together so I thought it was a cute idea...
