I wouldn’t. My mom thought I sent mine too early and I sent them 9.5 weeks before the wedding. People don’t know their plans that far in advance and people may lose them. I know I would.

Did you send out Save the Dates already?

Yeah I wouldn’t because people won’t be able to RSVP right. They’ll either lose it or have no idea what they’re doing in 7 months and forget to tell you. Do STDs.

Darn. I thought maybe that would calm you down enough until invitation time lol. Keep on holding on! 🙂

Waitingbee57:  From the wedding. Standard etiquette says 6-8 weeks before the wedding is when they should be sent. I think early July would be plentyy of time if it’s not a destination wedding. Since you sent out Save the Dates there is no need to send them out earlier than two months in advance.

I just got an invite for an end of June wedding today, which seems like a perfect amount of time. She had sent STD’s out a few months ago first though.

I would do it August 1st. It’s a little over 2 months by then.

Waitingbee57:  With that deadline I’d send them out the beginning of July.

I am getting married in June and sent my STD’s in January. My OOT guest invites will go out Monday and the rest of my invites will go out the 21st of April. My RSVP date is May 23rd. Usually, the rule is 6-8 weeks before the wedding.
