I am having a tiny issue. My fiance has STILL not given me a list. I have mine, his mom has given me hers, my mom has given me hers. STILL no list from my rabbit. Why you ask….? Because he claims he has no time… WELL as far as I am concerned that should be a priority. He on the other hand has different ideas about what his priorities are……….. Like his career for instance.
Well I am beginning to wonder if I should omit the STD’S all together….? I have 6 months till the wedding……

we sent ours out about 6 months beforehand (i think…i don’t totally remember…). do your fiance’s guests know the other people on the list? you can send them out to some people now and then his list later, as long as his numbers don’t change who gets invited on the other lists…

Our wedding is on New Years Eve, and we have a good amount of guests traveling in. We sent ours out mid-March.

We are sending them out about 10 months in advance. Over 1/2 of our guest will be coming from out of town. I want to make sure to give people plently of time to plan accordingly.

Many of our guest (about 85%) would have needed to travel, so we sent them out about at 10 months out.
If your FI won’t do it, you can send yours out (your people want to know!) and then set some time aside for him to do this (like making him sit down and you type or something). It should take less than an hour to talk through who he wants to invite, and then it’s just about getting the addresses.

We sent out ours about 8 month in advance, but we are having a destination wedding, so we had to tell people in advance, to accomodate travellers. We are planning to send the invites about 4 months before the wedding. Hope this helps!

I just sent mine out and am actually still waiting on some addresses from him so I can send them to his guests too. You could do something similar.

I am also still waiting for addresses from FH. Some addresses his mom gave to me (yay!). So I sent out the bulk of them yesterday, and the remaining 15 or so I’ll send when I have the addresses from him. The big benefit I see to the save-the-dates, is that if you have a FH who procrastinates on things, it’s a good way to get all of the addresses before you send out the formal invites.
