When You Should Send Out Wedding Invitations, Honolulu, Hawaii

Sending your wedding invitations too early or late can cause many issues for you and your guests. For the smoothest wedding possible, invitations should include helpful information for the guests, including ceremony and reception times and venue location. Here are a few invitation tips to help you and your guests enjoy a stress-free celebration.

When to Send Wedding Invitations

Draw a Timeline

Plan out when the invitations will be available, when they’ll be ready to send out, and when your guests will receive them. It’s typical to send wedding invitations six to eight weeks before your wedding date. This will allow guests enough time to clear their schedule and mark the date on their calendars. It should also let them know where the venue will be so they can arrange their travel and accommodations accordingly.

Set the RSVP Date


When setting your RSVP date, consider when you need to give an accurate head count to your caterer and finalize your venue seating chart. These deadlines should help you decide when to stop accepting RSVP responses. This date should be two to three weeks before the wedding. While most guests are happy to RSVP on time, don’t hesitate to contact those who haven’t responded through a phone call or email.

Include Helpful Information

Typical wedding invitations include the main invitation card with venue details, an RSVP date, and any other information that most guests may find helpful, like parking directions, entree selections, and suggested attire. You should also include a response card that’s conveniently stamped and addressed for a simple and timely RSVP.
