Hey ladies,

All of my October brides, when are you guys planning on sending out invites for your wedding? I'm ordering my invites tonight.

    I will probably order my in May or June and send in July. My wedding is October 10th so probably make the RSVP deadline September 10 or a week earlier so I have some time to follow up before we have to give final numbers.

    We are wedding date twins. I'm ordering the invites early because I have found a deal from the website I wanted to order from for 75% off and they usually only do 50% off. We have set our RSVP date for September 10th. Because all our caterer needs everything 14 days prior to the wedding date and I'm sure there will be some stragglers I'll have to call behind. I'm think of sending late July.

    Our wedding is October 4th. We are having the rsvp date September 1st. Which is just about one month out. We are sending out our invites the last week of July. So they arrive first week of August which gives everyone one month to RSVP

    I got married this past October and and we sent our invitations in August. Our RSVP date was 3 weeks before the wedding date.

    Invitations are typically sent 6-8 weeks before your wedding. I would ask your planner or venue when they need your final headcount by to decide on your RSVP date.

    Ours was 3 weeks before our wedding. We chose our RSVP date based on when our final headcount was due. So check with your planner or venue to see when they need that.

    Our wedding is October 10th...we are ordering our invites in May, sending in early July with an RSVP date of September 1st. This gives us 10 days to collect the stragglers before final numbers are due to our venue on September 10th.

    My wedding is also october 10th. My invitations are going out the 3rd week of July with an RSVP the second week of September to have time to get in touch with anyone that forgets before my final headcount is due.

    Same! We are going to send out the last week of July only because we had a few return to senders with our save the dates and wanted a buffer week in there. We sent out of save the dates the first week of March.

    Sounds like I should wait then. I was going to send mine in June but July sounds more reasonable.
