So I know typically invitations go out 8 - 10 weeks in advance, and we did send out stds, but looking for some feedback on a timeline. Our date is September 14th, final headcount due 10 days before so September 4th.
I have concerns with it being the summer and with where the 4th of July and Labor Day holidays fall within this timeline. Backstory of this is we are out of town the week of the 4th, and the weekend of Labor Day. This are weird mail holidays also and a lot of people we know travel them as well.
In order to have enough time to wait for rsvps that were mailed on the due date, and then track down missing ones I’m planning to set the rsvp date for August 14th.
Im planning to mail them out June 19 or June 20th so that they will make it to people the week before the 4th of July. A lot of guests are out of state, and it took them about 5 business days to receive out stds. Thinking we can avoid significant delays and lost invites that can happen with mail delivery being stopped while people are away, delays in mail holidays, etc.
Does this make sense or is that way too early?
