My wedding match 15th and is in Las Vegas where we live but most of our family doesnt so I sent out our invites around late December. It has worked out pretty well, people were able to get good flights and rooms 🙂

I would say probably around the middle of April would be safe. It gives your guests plenty of time to make accomodations!

@NLbride:  we are July 6th, with all my family being out of town/state. we opted to not send save the dates and just spread word of mouth to family only.  we are planning on wending invites by 3rd or 4th week of April to give notice, and plus it’s holiday weekend.

 

so I’d do similar for yours as well, so maybe 1st or 2nd week of May

@NLbride:  I say no.

 

I was concerned because the one shower that is being thrown for me is only 2 weeks before the wedding, so I was afraid that people would wonder if they weren’t invited to the shower because they’ll get the wedding invite much sooner. but I’m sure it’s fine.

@NLbride:  Then you can still send your invitations at the 3 month mark…that’s the point of STD’s 🙂

Save the Dates are that advanced notice for your guests.  Invites should go out 2-3 months before the wedding.  If you’re worried about people booking a hotel room, I suggest making a wedding website for your guests with all the details, suggested hotels, room block information if you’re doing that, etc.  It will save money if you don’t have to have all that stuff printed in your invites.  And then your guests can get the information right away and not have to wait.  Good luck!
