    I think I am going to skip the Save The Date's, and just do the wedding invite. I am planning on sending them out in September this year for my May 24th 2008 wedding. How long to you think I should give to RSVP? I would think it would be a little quicker to secure rooms at the hotel? I have a block of 10 (which we will definately exceed) just to put down the lowest deposit. Any suggestions?

      Hmmm.. I don't know, a month? People tend to put things aside and "forget" about them, but they need time to look into travel. We did STD cards when we secured the resort and will be sending out invites in September with a two week window for RSVP..

      Sorry if I wasn't any help.

        Are you going to do a website? If you do, you can put on there when you need their RSVP back from them... Or you could even do the RSVP on the site and save some money..... But if not, I would give them until December or January.

            I agree that January is the perfect time to request your RSVP's. Guests should definitely know by then whether or not they will be making the trip. Since guests will have their invites for a while before needing to RSVP, I would put a reminder on your website. Good luck!

              We also skipped the STDs and sent out our invitations early (in May for our October wedding). Most people knew about our plans by early March and many had booked before the invites were in the mail. We asked everyone to RSVP by September 1 (so about a month ahead of time). Often there are last minute deals, and we didn't want anyone to feel like they couldn't come unless they decided way in advance. Most people sent the RSVPs back right away, but I think a month will be plently of time to do some minor adjustments for those who wait until the last minutes. So far we have 83 booked...and 15-20 probablies...ikes!
