Numbers due to caterer: 7/26
My MOH is throwing me a shower on 6/8. I know wedding invites should go out before shower invites, but it's not really possible because I live far away and this is the only time I can get back for a shower. We had planned on sending wedding invites 6/10, and making the RSVP deadling July 12. That gives me 2 weeks to calculate "25 chicken, 30 steak, etc.", figure out seating arrangemetns (required), and call around to track down the non-responders.
So that's exactly 1 month for people to get back to me. Is that enough? Should I try to get invites out a week earlier? Or push back RSVP date? My friend is designing the invites for me, and she should have them done to order soon, but if I need to ask her to move more quickly I've got to get on that! Any help/suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
