Ask for response cards back 3 weeks prior (unless your caterer/ reception location needs them earlier)
If you can’t send out them out at 8 weeks, 6 weeks is the minimum in which case you can ask for responses 2 weeks prior.
Ask your invitation company for everything at least 3 weeks prior to sending them out for time to stamp response envelopes and address invitation envelopes.
