Honestly I would give it until Aug 15th or a week before that, because people who tell you they are coming may not come at the end of the day and people who say no, might last minute decide to come.

@rvalenka I think its kind of hard to put an RSVP on a destination wedding only because you are able to buy last minute packages so people who are wanting to go but can afford it may wait till the very end. I will know roughly how many guest I will have by March so I am just going to buy 6 over my guest count (3 couples)

Here is the tricky part that everyone tells you, but you won't believe. As easy as you make it for people, not everyone will fill out that little self addressed, stamped card! It's so crazy! I had a large list (250 ppl invited) and by a week after my deadline, I still had 80, that's right, 80 that were still outstanding! If you have a date you need to know by, make it a month before so you give the people who forget time, and you have time to bug if you choose. I know some people don't want to bug, but I did. I broke it down by my friends for me, my hubby's friends for him, his family to his mom, and my family to my mom. That way it wasn't overwhelming. Good luck!!!
Another idea I've seen on other threads is to have people's RSVP be the booking with the travel agent, and put a date on that. That will kill two birds with one stone, since after bugging people for RSVP, you then need to bug people to book! Definitely not trying to be negative, just this was my experience. In the end, all of the bugging was worth it and it was the best 3 days ever! Enjoy!
