Is it okay to send the invites a month and a half after save the dates? I'm in school and I have been so preoccupied with it that time seems to be running out for me, and that seems like my best option. :(

    yeah go for it.

    I know that although family received their Save the Dates in the mail early, within the next month a lot of people were asking us more information on where, when, how they can book and costs. So they would probably appreciate it.

      It is really important to have your RSVP's in as soon as possible. My resorts require final payment 30-45 days in advance and at this point you would have to have all your wedding details finalized. We also run into the problem when there are a lot of last minute additions, and we have to change the venue location because of capacities. 2 months is the longest I would suggest leaving an RSVP to come in. Plus, rates will become more expensive and you want to ensure that your room block is filled before the deposit/final payment deadlines!

       

      Happy planning!!

        Also, as I'm sure you've heard, be prepared to have to chase people down.  I NEVER expected so many people I thought had manners to flat out ignore the RSVP date.  We invited 147 and got RSVPs from less than half.

        Did any of you ladies write in the guests names on the RSVP cards?

            Oh man the RSVP dates are driving me nuts, Do you think that 5 months is too early to have people RSVP by? Like someone mentioned before, I want to have the details to finalize and pay the resort- plus I'm in school right now and will have a really big board exam to take in January, my wedding is in February, so I won't be able to do as much planning late in the game.

              I've had the exact same problem! It is so rude!! At this point, if I haven't heard from them, I'm counting them as a no.

                I think 5 months is a little too long. I have an RSVP date of march 31 and my wedding is June 24. We still have guests choosing this week. It's certainly cheaper to book earlier but due to various reasons we've had a few that couldt book til now. I still have quite a few tht haven't rsvpd and I agree it's rude. However, I'm just assuming if they haven't rsvpd or booked they aren't gong.

                  I'm sending out my invitations next month for an RSVP for MAY 18. My wedding is August, but the deadline for all money due is June 17. From reading the thread, I didn't expect I was going to have to chase people down but I guess I'm going to have to (it is rude!). When are you guys considering people they aren't going if you haven't heard from them or haven't booked? I have some people on the fence about going and March is almost over.
