When to Send Out Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitations in Envelopes

Once you’ve found the perfect invitation (you should be shopping around about six months before the big day) and settled on what it should say, it’s time to make it official and put the invites in the mail. But how far in advance should you send out wedding invitations?

The general rule of thumb: Mail invitations six to eight weeks before the ceremony, setting the RSVP date at three weeks after the postmark date. This gives guests plenty of time to check their schedules and make any necessary travel arrangements. Plus, it provides plenty of time for you to get a final headcount and make seating charts.

Get tips for addressing wedding invitations.

    Please keep in mind destination wedding invitations, preceded by a “save the date” announcement, must be sent well in advance of the wedding date; preferably, at least 3-6 months in advance to be considerate to the schedules of all who are traveling.

    I agree with ammorethanamom! Had experienced receiving one Just a couple of months before the wedding and had to decline because I wasn’t able to save money for travel. :(
