Ive heard for destinations 8 months is good to send and then at the 3 month mark the reply date.. But usually this is what the save the date is for. then you would just send invite out like normal.

A lot of the details (exact timing or menu options for example) can change in 10 months time span, so I wouldn’t send out the invitations so early, plus I’d be worried about guests losing the invites or rsvps.  If everyone already knows about the date & location you don’t need to send out save the dates at all.  The invitations for destination weddings I have received have come at 3-6 months before.

I would send out STD’s thats what they are for. If you send out invites now people will loose them & forget. A STD is a reminder they can stick it on the fridge and 2-3 months before the wedding they get the invite.

We had lots of people come in from overseas (essentially we were a DW as well – though we live here). We sent out invites 7 months in advance and had the RSVP date 2.5 months in advance. That gave us ample time to chase up late RSVPs and people were happy they got a good flight deal that early.

I’d do STDs and send out invites about 6 months early or so.

I sent the STD’s 10 months ahead of the wedding (etiquette will tell you 1 year). Then my actual invites went out in June (3 months ahead of time) and my RSVP is August 1st. I figured giving them a month and a half will allow people to really know if they can make it or not and check in with vacation and budget.
