In reading "Wedding Planning for dummies", and asking the same question should ask for a reply 3-4 weeks before the wedding. This way, if you don't get any responses by September 20th (which would be 4 weeks), you (or your MOH, or whoever) can start calling them and kindly asking for a reply over the phone.

There are a few things to consider when selecting your RSVP Date. First are you having menu choices or arranged seating? If you are having both or one option you will need more time to create the seating chart and organizing the place cards for the menu selection, depending on how you are arranging it all. Select the 4-week time period if you have the options I mentioned. Otherwise 3 weeks will be fine.

If you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

We are putting four weeks. That way I am able to get the info to the caterer and get enough favors for everyone and still have time to not stress out. Most people I ahve talked to say about 3-4 weeks....only because a lot of vendors require that for their services...esp caterers
