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?

Hmm. Will it take her that long to save up for the party?

 No she has everything but the food already

Maybe she just wanted to be efficient? Who knows? People do things different ways. Only thing I truly see as being weird is wanting the RSVP so far in advance. It's not a wedding.

 We just got invited to a party in about a week in a half . . . So I'll have two paydays and weekends to shop for a gift.  I think that is a reasonable amount of time.

to me a week and a half is short notice

 I know, but when I did my party, I gave about the same notice, but in my defense, I was aiming for two weeks and for whatever reason I couldn't get the invitations done in time. 

Obviously for a bigger party or more formal party I would probably give more time however, we are talking about birthday parties for kindergardeners.
