Invite timeline question

Invitations are being made and will be here around June 15th. My reply date is by August 5 (wedding on Sept 17). When do the invites need to go out by? That is how long do I need to give someone to reply to them?

Thanks!! Have a good weekend everyone!

    Typically invitations are mailed 6-8 weeks in advance, the latter if you have lots of OOT guests. We mailed ours 8 weeks out b/c we got married on a long weekend and also on a holiday.

    Make sure you give yourself enough time for follow-up calls (we had lots that didn't use their RSVP card!) and also time to get your final count in...GL!

    I was planning on giving our guests ~4 weeks, but then mailed our invites super late, and they only had about 2 weeks.  It worked out okay though bc most people sent them back right away.
    Yay! Finally able to update my signature :)

    Our wedding is Oct. 10th. and our rsvp date is September 15th... just about 3 weeks before the wedding.

    We are mailing out our invites on July 10th so that gives our guests tons of time to rsvp. Hopefully they will send them back quickly and we won't have to stalk anyone.

    Response deadline is approx. 1 month before the wedding (depending on when you need the final count).
    Invitations go out 2 months before the wedding, so July 17th for you.

    yea I think the girls here are right.. generally if you have more out of town guests... send things out earlier. I sent mine on Monday and our reply date is July 10th.. so we gave them loads of time.. and people are responding quickly.

    save the dates typically are mailed 9-12 months in advance...the latter if it is a destination wedding, long weekend holiday etc. to give guests ample time to make travel reservations, hope that helps :)
