How far in advance should guests RSVP for a wedding?
Assuming you’ve sent your invitations out in time (at least six to eight weeks before your wedding), then give your guests four or five weeks to RSVP. This is plenty of time for people to figure out if they want/are able to attend your wedding, as well as figure out any necessary travel arrangements.
Does no RSVP mean not coming?
When someone doesn’t RSVP, as a general rule, it’s safe to assume they aren’t coming. This is true with paper invitations for weddings as well. When people don’t RSVP to a wedding, they aren’t coming.
What is the etiquette for inviting guests to a wedding?
