We are sending ours out in late may. I am still trying to figure out 100% What we want to do so I am in no rush to order them…

Ours go out tomorrow!!! Ahh!! Our wedding isn’t until October, but almost every guest will be traveling from out of state and we want to ensure adequate time for flight and work arrangements. Usually I think the typical time to send them out is 6 weeks before your wedding date.

@marfi236:  I am sending mine out in May. A lot of my guests are from OOT. ๐Ÿ™‚ But June is good too, they say normally give people 6-8 weeks to respond. Cool

Mine are also going out in May! But I agree June is more than enough time.

Mine are going out beginning of June – our wedding is August 31, I figure that gives us enough time to get responses and do calling for those that dont respond. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are planning to send ours Mid April since we didnt send out STD.  Half of our guests are OOT. I hope this isn’t too early. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our event coordinator advised 8 weeks out so in June, but we might do it a few weeks or a month earlier than that just because the cutoff date to reserve rooms in our hotel block is a month before our wedding, and we want to make sure people have enough time to book.  The downside to sending out earlier is that you risk people setting things aside to do them later because they have time (in this case, fill out/mail the RSVP), and end up forgetting about it.  As far as travel, we also have a lot of OOT guests but we sent STD’s with our wedding website listed… however no one seems to be looking at the “travel and accomodations” portion of our website -_-**

@adoc86:  That is really early, I would send out save the dates first even if it is just a post card. People will loose their RSVP cards and you will have to be calling everyone to get their response.

I sent our our Save the Dates this month. Formal invites will go out at the end of May or the first week of June. Depending on when I get to the design and have proofs made.

@MsPanda – I know its SUPER early. However its a small wedding (50ish guests) and we are pretty much in contact with almost everyone all the time so I’m not worried about anyone forgetting. We are covering hotel costs for all of our guests so its important for us to get a head count early. Also, literally every single guest will be flying or driving 17+ hours to the wedding – which is on a Thursday.  I feel like we needed to provide ample time to find flights and make work arranagements. I personally would not appreciate getting an invite and having 2-3 months to find a flight, take off that much time for work (most people are staying a week), etc. I read that someone invited guests from the UK to their wedding and only sent the invite out 6 weeks early!! That is totally absurd to me.

@marfi236:  My wedding is a day after yours! AND it’s in Ohio! *woot*

Anywho, we just ordered our package of Save the Dates, Invitations, etc. I had no idea that STDs go out so early…everywhere online I see people sending them out 6 months+! Had NO idea. So yeah, once I get those, I’ll be sending them right out. I’ll probably send the invitations out late May/early June.
