RSVP dates

What day in May is your wedding and when is your RSVP date. I was just so rudely told by my cousin that my RSVP date is "Too early and stupid to have it that early"... my wedding is May 19th.

TIA.

    Your cousin sounds pleasant!

    Wedding is May 12th, RSVP date is April 5th.  Honestly I think everyone's RSVP date is so different because venues/caterers all have different policies about when you need your final numbers.  My date gives me 1 week to track down stragglers.

    Our wedding is May 9th -- RSVP was March 15th.  Our venue has to have final #'s the last week in March so that gave us a week to track down stragglers and a week to put the seating together.

    my wedding date is May 27 and my RSVP is April 30th. But my invites still are not here.

    Date: May 26th
    RSVP date: April 28th - gives 2 weeks for ppl who mail rsvps late/at the last minute and for us to track down everyone else.

    Maybe your cousin is thinking of ppl, like my friend, whosevendors gave her a 72 hour window for final counts (LUCKY!)? She actually only gave ppl 3 weeks to turn their cards in.

    Our wedding date is May 18th and the RSVP date is April 20th.WeI chose that date because that gives us a month to finalize the catering and everything. And cut corners elsewhere to cover any other costs that are determined by number of guests.

    May 19 wedding. April 19 RSVP....I only need to give my place a week notice but I wanted time to do tables, escort cards and stalk my fi's single guys that don't know to send a card in. Lol

    Wedding is May 19th our RSVP date is May 1. Our venue needs our final count a week before the wedding so that still gives us over a week to track people down if need be.
  • Options
    Wedding date is May 5th and RSVP is March 24. ALL of our guest have to travel, so it's not really a last minute decision. Plus this gives FI and I plenty of time to plan/evaluate budget at a very busty time of year for the both of us.

    Our wedding is also May 19th with a RSVP date of April 19th. A month is common depending on when you need a head count.

    Ours is May 4th, RSVP due March 26th.  Our venue requires 30 days for final head count so, we didn't have much choice on this one.  We only have about 1 week to track down stragglers...:(

    Wedding date: May 26
    RSVP: May 5th

    We have to give our caterer a guaranteed minimum # of guest by May 12th, and the final count 2 days before the wedding.  This gives us PLENTY of time to track down any stragglers.

    May 18th with an RSVP date of April 18.

    I have to give the final count to my venue 2 weeks in advance, but wanted the full 4 weeks to give myself the extra time to get organized, do the seating, chase down missing rsvp's, etc.

    April 21st is our RSVP date. She said it's stupid to have it so early because people can change their mind closer to the wedding...

    Okay, now I don't feel so weird having an early RSVP date and now I can tell her to mind her business lol. I was thinking it was a good thing to have it early. The vendors will know early and also it will help us figure out cost saving ideas and seating, etc.

    And yes, she is stupid to the PP lol

    Mine is May 19th and RSVP date is April 14th. 

    Not only do you have to worry about final guest count for caterer, but # of chair covers you need, # of favors and napkins to order, etc.  You need some cushion time to get everything done before the wedding.  She definitely needs to mind her business...has she ever been married before??

    Yeah, she has. She's just dumb and one of those "thinks she knows EVERYTHING" type of people. She's the same cousin who also told me to elope and throw my dad a retirement party instead. But, that's a subject for another day lol.
