I have no clue about these things. My wedding is September 12th 2020. I was wondering when to send invitations?

    Usually it’s 6-8 weeks before the RSVP date not the actual wedding date. My RSVP date is the week before my final numbers are due to my venue.

    6-8 weeks. I'd make a little buffer for yourself for when you final guest count is due.

    6-8 Weeks normally, unless you’re having a Destination Wedding? Which is typically 6-8 Months to allow time for travel bookings.

    No, it's 6-8 weeks before the wedding date. RSVP date no more than a month out from the wedding, ideally.

    No, the timeline for invitations is the same for destination weddings, maybe sending a couple of weeks earlier. What you send 6-8 months before the wedding is STDs.

    My wedding is the 26th of September and I'll be sending mine out late June/early July and having the RSVP by date be August 21st. So that's more 11-12 weeks in advance but we aren't doing STDs so wanted to send them out a little earlier for out of state guests. If you sent STDs then I'd say mid July to send out invites and RSVP a month before the wedding that way you have plenty of time to reach out to guests who haven't responded and can get everything set.

    We didn’t do STDs either. We are only having a 20-30 people family wedding and everyone lives within 20 mins of us.
