So my Fiance and I are getting married on October 4th 2014 here in Missouri we have several invites going to out of town guests we sent out Save the dates just last week with a sticker on the back of them with our wedding website information on it so they could check out our wedding website. My question is since we do have people coming from out of town and we have to give our head count to the reception hall on September 5th would it be to early to send out the invitations on June 20th with a RSVP respond date of August 22nd? So we have time to contact people whose RSVPs hadn't came back yet and still have time to get the reception hall the head count on time. Just curious as I know the rule is sending it out 8 weeks before the wedding with a RSVP by 4 weeks of the wedding but I'm concerned if I do that I won't get RSVP's back on time. Any other Brides having this dilemma also?
