RSVP Date?

Hello everyone,

I know there's been a post here recently about RSVP dates and the date for sending out invitations, but would you mind to post yours again? We're hoping to print invitations this weekend, and I almost forgot to add the RSVP date! Our wedding date is May 26th. :-)

Btw, is an RSVP date standard for wedding invitations? I mentioned the date idea to FI and he was skeptical.....I'm still pretty sure it is, but I just wanted to check to see. :-) Thanks so much!

    Our wedding is May 4th. Our RSVP date is april 1st.  Were sending our the invites the first or second week of March. Our hall needs final head count two weeks before so that will leave us plenty of time to call anyone for final head count if need be.

    Sending out Invites: March 1

    Yes the RSVP date is standard. Otherwise you might have guests that never send it back or send it late. Then that can mess up your counting with food and everything else.

    Our wedding date is the 26th as well.  Our RSVP date is May 5th.  Our caterer needs a final head count by May 12th, and this gives us an extra week to track down any stragglers. :)

    That way I have plenty of time to catch up with those who hadn't sent theirs back in time and prepare myself for the cost of food... I have to have final count to caterer and $$$ two weeks prior to wedding date.

    Mailing out: 2nd week of March
    RSVP date: April 23rd (venue needs two weeks notice of final headcount, this gives an extra week for those "lost in the mail")

    Yes, RSVP is standard, if you didn't have a date, people wouldn't respond in time or not at all and then you wouldn't know how many people to feed.

    Same. I may send them out a few days earlier, not sure yet. Our caterer wants final numbers about a month before.

    Mailing out invites next week.  Ours are going out a little earlier than originally planned because I am starting to get calls from OOT guests needing to know specifics.  I am still torn on sending them so early but people are wanting to make travel arrangements and accomodations and referring them to our website doesn't seem to satisfy them.  :(

    Thanks so much, everyone! I really appreciate it. :-)

    RSVP: May 5 - our numbers are due to caterer May 16, so this gives us a week and a half to call people.
