Invites and Paper

Ivitation dates and deadlines..

Hello there! My wedding is May 23,2013 I was wondering when I should send out bridal shower/ bachelorette pary invites. (my shower and bach party will be combined). I was always wondering when my wedding invites should be sent out and when the RSVP should be. A MAJORITY of our guest will be out of town; I have already sent out my STD's.

THANK YOU Ladies!!

    Shower/bachelorette party about 1 month in advance (unless it's on a holiday weekend, then maybe afford guests another week or so notice)

    Wedding invitations 6-8 weeks in advance. I noticed your wedding is on a Thursday? If this is actually the case, you'll probably want to send at the 8 week mark so guests can request off of work.

    Your RSVP deadline should be about a week before your caterer/venue needs final numbers.

    ETA: You know you can't host your own shower & bachelorette party, correct? You can provide a list of your desired invitees to your hostess(es), but that's your only role.
  • Yes, I do know that I can't host my own parties. My MOH and I were just talking about when invites should go out. And I requested that the party be combined.  And yes, My wedding date is on a Thursday. Thanks! :)

    I'd just say be aware of the guest list and have the invites mention what to expect.  Honestly, if I was invited to a combo shower/bachelorette party, I'd probably decline.  If it was just the shower I'd attend, but I'm not really into the whole bachelorette party thing.
