How would you do it? Answers in red

Posted by   + Show Post

I just got an invitation for someone having a birthday party for a 6 year old. invitation made me think a little bit.
So a question for all of you.
how early do you mail invitations out for a 5 to 7 year old birthday with no one coming from out of state?
how many days before the party do you want an RSVP?
I'll post with this invitation called for a little later.


Ok so it was my sister and the birthday is for my nephew and she mailed them out 7 weeks in advance.She wants the RSVP's by 4 weeks prior. (its a birthday party not a wedding) I would understand if she was having a party at somewhere like a catering hall,even Chuck e Cheese but its not its in the house with only a handful of kids invited. It's not even like she is getting a bounce house or clown, nothing that needs advance notice. Weird or just me?

Issues with Jillian and school and doing stupid things that are throwing the back out.

My son is going to be 4 Monday, and I sent the invites out two weeks in advance for his pre-school. I asked for a RSVP the day before. However I have yet to hear from any of them, but think they will go since they all went to another child's in the class.

I send out the invites one month in advance. I want an RSVP one week before the party.

rsvp a week ahead is good

Quoting Emschick38:

I usually send them out about a month in advance. Since we dont ever invite more than 6-8 kids i dont often worry about RSVP

thats different

Quoting SamMom912:

4 weeks invite goes out... And depending in the venue (location) anywhere from a week to 3 days before for rsvp. 

For my sons first birthday at restaurant we sent out invite 7 weeks in advance with rsvp 2 weeks before as restauant needed head count by x day to order food. It is also typically a busy time of year for people... So i wanted lots of notice. 

if having it at a revue or somewhere where food is being provided and head count is needed it's understandable
