So we are planning to have a ceremony in May either the 27th or the 28th but havent sent out the save the dates since we are waiting to do the pre-marital couseling. Should we send the save the dates now or wait and send the invites now since we are about 4 months away?

I would wait to send out invites. I am sending my invites 2-3 months before the wedding. Hope this helps….

Usually invites go out about 6 weeks before the date (give or take).
Some people send save the dates 9months out from the date, some sooner.
Depending on how many people already know, and how much time before hand people are going to need to make plans/arrangements you could send them now, but it may just confuse people or be overkill at this point.
have you considered sending out stds via email?
Or have they already been printedordered?

@missmouse29: no one really knows that we are planning to get married but we arent having a reception probably a small one at the church with cupcakes and punch then afterwards we are thinking about goin bar hopping.. I was just so confused on when to send out the invites and if we should start telling people. We havent booked the church yet since i am still waiting on the coordinator to email me back and we also have to do the pre-marital counseling.

If people arent from out of town, you dont even have to do the save the dates. If you dont do them, then send the invites a little earlier about 8 weeks from the date of the wedding to give them plenty of notice.

I would suggest not sending any out.
If you have out of town guests that are located out of the country or anything like that, I would go ahead and send them invites now.
Other than that, I would just send the invites 2 months before the wedding date.
