I’d like you bees to help settle a debate between me and my mom. Here’s the situation:
My FH and I are getting married almost exactly a year from now. Our venues are booked and our guest list is set. Almost our entire guest list lives on the opposite side of the country or overseas. Because of this, my mom thinks we should send our STD’s next month to 1. give everyone plenty of time to plan accordingly and 2. to announce our wedding date. Most of our OOT family and friends think we are getting married in October 2014 because that was our original date, but we recently moved it up to August because I will (hopefully) have a teaching job by then and didn’t want to get married during the school year.
So…I planned on sending STD’s early, but I was thinking Jan or Feb of 2014. My mom thinks her way is a better idea.
What do you all think I should do?

I say send them out this Fall for sure due to the change in date and the distance, especially for the overseas guests.

I would send them out a minimum of 9 months in advance, especially if people were thinking october and possibly planning vacations around that! I know my old job all vacation was booked on seniority in November for the following year and the summer months were very difficult to get if you didn’t snap them up early!

I feel they should be sent out as soon as possible, but that’s just me.
