I am going through the Formal invitation / RSVP great debate! I need my Sister Brides to help me!!!! My wedding is set for June 28th. I sent out my Save the Date in July.
My questions are:
1) When did you send out your formal invitation (how far in advanced from your wedding)
2) How far before the wedding did you set your RSVP date?
As a side note, I am working with a travel agent & my guests have the option to put a deposit down of $150 per adult that goes towards their room rate & they have the option to pay if off by April instead of all upfront.
For those of you that have already passed this process --
1) Did you find issues with room availability at the resort and/or airfare prices being too high? If the RSVP date was too close to the wedding?
2) Did you have enough time to order i.e. favors etc if you had your RSVP date close to your wedding date?
I guess my major concern is as a bride, I feel like I need to know really early but don't want to deter guests if I'm asking so far in advanced for a commitment.
