I would send them out no later than 9 months. I’m sending mine out around a year ahead of time BUT I really think you should send them ASAP since you’re planning on having it around the holidays and people are going to be travelling and making plans with family.

Yup. Same here. 11 months for me for first round invites. 2nd round went out yesterday, 10 months in advance.

I had a destination wedding and gave the invites out at our engagement party. That was almost a year and a half notice … the more notice the better, but then again you need to be completely certain that the people you invite at that time are those who will still be in your life etc when the time comes (i.e. no fights/loss of friendships etc) – so we then sent out official invites closer to the date to those we wanted there

We sent ours 1 year before our wedding. We wanted to make sure our guests had a heads up about where and when we were getting married.

Definitely send those puppies out ASAP! You want your guests to be able to book travel arrangements as soon as possible and for good, early prices, especially since you will be having the wedding around holidays and a busy time of the year to book flights.

Forget the pictures for your Save the Dates so you can get them out quicker! For us, we are just including our engagement photos on our website for people to see (once we finally get around to doing our e-shoot that is!).

We’re getting married in Sweden this August and I just send our STDs, so that’s 7 months. In your case, I would send them earlier than that as you’re getting married during a time of the year when most people will have plans. So, as the rest of the bees have said – start now!

I am aiming to send out save the dates a little over a year out from the wedding. Most places open booking things a little less then a year out. I want everyone to be able to make reasonable travel arrangements.

I am also getting married in South America. The date is at the end of June, about to send out the STDs, so 6 months.  Got engaged in October, but procrastinated a bit, in a true Latin style:)

We aren’t doing STDs. We emailed/texted all the important people all the details maybe 10-11 months prior.

I’d send them ASAP. We sent ours 11 months ahead of time and that felt late to me.
