I plan on sending mine in January or February, but I’m getting married a month (almost) after you. I don’t see any harm in sending them at this time of year.

I’m shooting for February, I like the six month guideline.

Hi Entangled, we’re date twins and I just sent mine out today… so I think the timing is great!

I sent mine out last year around this time. Many people did not get them or got them a lot later than others, which caused some people to think they weren’t invited. I got a lot of them back due to small issues with addresses, which our mailman told us the post office would have corrected instead of sending back at any other time of year, but due to holiday cards and packages they are over loaded and don’t have time.  In hindsight I would have waited. I ended up resending 15 to folks who never got them.

I’m handing/sending mine out now for a wedding in a year – but thats bacause half the invitees are going to have to plan a MASSIVE trip in order to come, and i wanted to give them as much notice as possible.  I think a year is quite a long time when people will only need to travel locally, but for us it made sense.  No issues with postage yet – i’m watching it carefully!

@mwitter80: Eeek that is scary! I’m planning on sending mine out this week and I really don’t want to wait because my wedding is in May and I’m cutting it close for STDs as it is. Now I’m worried!

@riley jane: I did have a lot that were traveling across the country. The one’s that were going the farthest were the one’s that had issues. We’re in CT the one’s that went to Georgia, Texas, and California I had to resend. If yours are closer it may not be as big of an issue.
