So both the wedding wire and the knot checklists say I should be “finding/ordering” my wedding invitations this week for my August 31 wedding. So I’m playing around online with invitation suites I like, and I got to the RSVP date and didn’t know what to put. My venue does not require final numbers until 4 days before the event; however, I want to order place cards online with printed names on them from minted for my seating chart. The problem is, I won’t know everyone’s guest name until the RSVPs are back I would assume? Of course I would know the majority of my guests, but there’s probably 10-12 individuals not in relationships that we gave a +1 (family and out of town guests). When do you think an appropriate RSVP date would be? I was thinking August 10th, but that kind of seems too soon, but then when I think of ordering the place cards I just don’t know!
