I am in the process of ordering our invititations, w/ reception and response cards.  My wedding date is Oct 11, 2008.  How far in advance should I request the reply/RSVP?  I was thinking 3-wks, but my Mom suggested 2-wks.  I have to turn in final headcount a week in advance.  Thank you in advance for your recommendations.

Dear L2u,

Count backwards from the time your final head count is due to the caterer.

You'll need about a week to phone and nail down those who don't respond. 3 weeks sounds about right.

I dunno, I have a tight list and need rsvps in time to invite b-listers. So Im thinking to ask for my replys at least 5 to 6 weeks before the date

I MARRY THE LOVE OF MY LIFE OCTOBER 4TH 2008!!

Thank you for your advice and recommendations.  I hadn't really thought about calling people for their RSVPs (and I don't know why, I read about people doing that all the time).
