Ep 61 – RSVP 1,2,3



Getting family and friends to let you know if they’re coming to the wedding can be frustrating.
This is what often happens: You’ll get a flurry of responses right after people receive their invitation
(thank you!), then a few will straggle in for the next few weeks. Expect a bunch of replies close to the deadline.
And then there are those who never respond-you’ll have to go after them.
To make sure you give guests enough time to RSVP (but not too much that they forget), check out the guide below to figure out how much time you should really give your potential attendees to get their responses in.


How many weeks should you give people to RSVP?

Assuming you’ve sent your invitations out in time (at least six to eight weeks before your wedding), then give your guests four or five weeks to RSVP. This is plenty of time for people to figure out if they want/are able to attend your wedding, as well as figure out any necessary travel arrangements.

When should the RSVP deadline be?

Have your RSVP due date be two to three weeks prior to the wedding. Your caterer will want a head count at least one week before the reception, and you’ll need a few days to get in touch with people who you haven’t heard from.
