August 2012 Weddings

August 24th Brides

Ok I've been reading all these exciting invite posts, and I'm starting to panic...when are you sending your invites out.  I was going to wait until the last week in June, but is this too late?  HELP!

    I'm not an August 24 bride, but I am an August 18 bride.  We are sending ours out mid-August, so it sounds like we are both sending them out about two months ahead of time.  Honestly, unless there is some sort of special circumstance, I don't think you need to send them out any sooner than that.

    I'm an August 11th bride, but I posted this exact same fear last week because a lot of August brides were getting RSVPs. We are not sending our until June 11, 2 months ahead of time. That way people will get them about one month ahead of our July 25 RSVP date. Thats probably the best I've heard is 1 month prior to RSVP date, unless you have a lot of OOT guests.

    It seems scary, but I promise, you're fine!

    I'm an August 18th bride. I sent mine out at the 3 month mark. Mainly because all of our guests are traveling, except for a select few. However, my reply by date isn't until 3 weeks before the wedding... so my RSVPs have been coming in slow with people holding off I guess...

    I have a friend getting married Aug. 25th and I have not received her invite yet... I think you can mail anytime from now until Mid June and be ok.

    I'm August 25th and waiting until after the 4th of July.  Our rsvp date is July 31st giving us over 3 weeks to gather missing replies and get a count to the caterer which is not needed until something like 3 or 7 days prior.

    I'm an August 25th bride, we will send our invites at the beginning of July with an Aug 1st RSVP date.  I didn't want to send invites too early, I know that I am pretty forgetfull when I receive an invite a couple months in advance and the RSVP usually gets stuck at the bottom of a pile of mail for some reason.

    Sent mine out at the 3 month mark for many reasons, but mainly 1 we did not send save the dates, 2 60 percent are traveling or have to request off work, 3 my friends with children are booking summer vacations right now, and 4 I needed to know what family could come so I could invite more friends! my family will not be there, but fi's family is huge! there's no pressure, but darn is it fun to get RSVPs. Go 8/24!!!
    What a beautiful mess this is...

    I am shooting for 6/24, no later than 7/1... very few of my guests are OOT and those that are will probably not come anyway and we sent out STDs to almost everyone.

    I'm also August 25 and aiming to send invites around June 25. We have OOT guests but they already received Save the Dates (all of our guests did).

    I'm an Aug 25th bride and I'm picking up my invites tonight and I'm hoping to send them all out tomorrow.  I have many guests - most of whom are from out of state and out of the country is the reason why we're sending them close to the 3 month mark.  I also sent save the dates earlier in the year too
