I am getting married on April 20th (please refrain from any and all 4/20 jokes haha!) and I am working on my DIY invitations this week. I hope to have them done by the end of the week and had planned on going ahead and sending them out since our wedding is in a slightly unusual place – gorgeous, but unusual – and pretty much everyone coming will be from out of town (4-11 hours away). My FMIL just got me her list of addresses, but told me that proper etiquette is to send them closer to 2 months before the wedding. I know that I’m a few weeks earlier than the “status quo” but given the circumstances, I think it would be a good idea to go ahead and get them out so that our family can get time off from work, make travel arrangements, etc.
What are your thoughts?!

I think 2-3 months is appropriate. 3 months for people who have to make extensive travel arrangements, 2 months for people who live closer.

I like knowing things earlier instead of later. I vote send them!

did you send out std? if not, it may be a good idea to send them a bit earlier than normal so that your guests can plan ahead.
(is 4/20 supposed to be funny? i don’t get it)

Good, I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who thinks this is ok! I’ve never been a strict rule follower anyway, but I don’t want to throw people way off by sending them too early. No, @mypinkshoes, I didn’t send STD’s which was another reason I thought it was acceptible to send them a bit earlier.
4/20 is the pot smokers holiday, apparently…totally irrelevant to our reasoning for choosing the date! We’re not pot heads haha!

Go ahead and send them out. Better to be early than late. BUT do not pressure yourself or rush through your DIY just to get them out by Monday. Enjoy making those invites! Paper products are my favorite. We had to rush through our invites due to printing issues and I really wish I had more time to enjoy it. 😉
