I think you need to send them bout 8 weeks before and you'll need time to write them and address envelopes

Anytime between now and May I’d say, depends also on how long they take to be done as well

My advice is to order your invitations & stationery when the guest list is finalised, certainly no later than approx. 3 months prior to the wedding, its not something you need to have hanging over you if you can avoid it.

We are in the middle of it at the moment. We are waiting for the first draft and then hopefully we can give our full order. A friend is making them. Our wedding is in mid August. Alot of guests are from the Uk and even though they know about the wedding, we are sending out their invites the start of May and having the rsvp in mid July. Maybe even the first week into July, to be sure, in case I have to spend time chasing answers. Then the evening ones are going out then and the rsvp is about 10 days before the wedding, as it is really for our own information and we don't have many afters anyway.

I've just finished mine and it actually took me longer than expected as I was missing addresses or had to check about partners etc. Give yourself extra time, no harm if they're sitting in a box stamped addressed and ready to go!
