  • I would send them out a solid 3 weeks before the party. if you send them the week before, Fri/ Mon wont matter as many people may already have weekend plans.

  • i would send them out 2 weeks in advance. Maybe the first few days of school, a week is not always enough time to make plans. By then, lots of people already have something to do.

  • I would send them on Friday. I always like to give people as much notice as possible. I usually send out my kids' bday party invites 3 weeks in advance

  • I usually send mine our 1 1/2 - 2 weeks in advance. People are so busy these days, if you don't give plenty of notice, most have made plans already.

  • The sooner the better!! People weekends book up pretty quickly so I would let the parents know about the party asap!!

  • I usually send out my invitation 2wks to a month ahead so that people have enough notice. In your case I think Friday is better.

  • At least 3 weeks notice. 2 weeks is not enough, especially for those on budget.
