    Default School birthday party

    How soon before should I give out invites? Tomorrow will be 5.5 weeks, too early?

    Waaaaayyyyyy too early for me as I'd likely forget about it. We usually give/get 2-3 weeks notice.

    For us thats not too early. If we got the invitation with only a couple of weeks notice, chances are we would already have things on. The earlier the better.

    I always find it strange when people say too early. At my kids school we don't get the invite until the Friday before the weekend it's on. Drives me crazy!
