So I sent my save the dates 2 weeks ago because I am told the sooner the better as 2023 is a popular wedding year. My wedding is September 2023 and plan on sending out my Invitations in February, my RSVP date for August 21, 2023.


Have you sent out your save the date, what is your timeline?

    See to me that makes sense but I am so confused with all the time lines. My FH's cousin sent his out a month before his wedding, since my good friend has been trying to get married for the past two years and we received her invite earlier we went to her wedding, they were on same days and I never met his cousin or his family so it was a easier decision. My friend has three weddings to go to all in September, thank god they are all on different dates.

    My fiance and I sent our save the dates a year out since we're having a destination wedding
    And then sent out invites 3 months before our wedding date with an rsvp a month before the wedding

    Same when I sent out my STD I placed my website, and when I send the actual invite, it will be a reminder of the wedding, plus website and the RSVP date. But I don't plan on chasing anyone lol. you forget you forget lol. But we ae close to everyone so a quick email to everyone won't be hard, there's only 40 guests.

    I kinda did opposite to what most did and I DID save the dates but when digital for actual invites. I made my own STD with my cricut and I sent them out in January with my evites sent out mid-July (for my October wedding)

    Truthfully, when I sent my STD I also included the wedding website so I had a good handle of RSVP right away (our wedding is quite small and we are pretty close with everyone invited so its not really been a secret to them haha), so at this point Im really only chasing about half of guests for responses (with about 99% certainty all those guests are coming)

    That's what I was thinking, but I was going by a recommendation of a friend who just got married and the quoted timeline on websites. I kind of hope some might forget and not come lol.

    We did not send save the dates but since you did - February is WAY too early for invites. People (most) will not rsvp fight away because of how far that date is and will forget. We didn't even send STDs (people knew) and sent our invites 8 weeks out with rsvp 4 weeks later AND most booked a hotel for ours. This was also covid time so we had planned to send them a bit earlier but definitely not 7 months early. I'd send them in June or July, which is way more than enough time.
