Hi all. I just received an invite to a friends wedding. her wedding is May 14. She says most of her guest are not from out of state so she waiting until now to send them. Almost half of my guests are out of state. When is a good time to send my invitations. My wedding is July 16. I do not want to wait too long but I do not want to do it too early.

I did read the you should send invitations out three months ahead of time. That is abouta week away.

I was always under the impression that 8 weeks before the wedding was standard. Did you send Save the dates to give people a heads up?

I did 3 months for out of towners. I think 10-12 weeks out is fine.

I think it depends on your guests ultimately. 6 to 8 weeks prior is the standard. However, if you are having a lot of out of town guests or a destination wedding, it would definitely be a good idea to send them earlier. I am having mainly in-town guests (or guests within an hour or two of the wedding) so we are actually hand delivering all except a few of ours. My wedding date is May 14th as well. Our wedding is basically family and they all know the date and time…the invite, for us, is just a formality.

8 weeks is the norm, but I’m sending my out of state invites out today!! and I’m about 11 weeks out. I also gave some out last weekend.. But majority of them will go out next weekend. I just cant wait till April 26 to send them out. i’m just eager to get them sent out!

I think it depends on if you sent out Save the Dates. If you have, a standard 8 weeks should be fine, but if you haven’t, you might want to give it some extra time (maybe 10-12 or so weeks)
