I know I could look it up but when do you guys think party invites should go out? I just finished the invitations for Katelyn's first birthday party yesterday. Her party is 6 weeks from Saturday. (I can't believe she is almost a year old!) Should I mail them now or wait a bit? Another thing is that her party is the Saturday after Thanksgiving so it is a holiday weekend.

I'm sending mine out three weeks before his birthday party. That way I can get an accurate number of people coming how much food to make etc. I would say the norm is two weeks but I need that extra week for planning.

I usually do ours one month ahead. I'll probably send mine out November 1st or 2nd.


What do you girls do that are closer to Christmas? Do you do the parties early, later, or right on time?

Ok. Thanks. I guess I will wait a little bit before mailing them.
