So my Fi and I have our invites all ready to go to, to the post office later this morning. However I am having thoughts on is it to early to send them out for a June 4th wedding? I am having these thoughts thanks to my parents.
We had asked each side for parents if they had a few more guests they would like to add. His parents gave him a couple and so did mine. When speaking with my mom last night on the phone she and my dad keep insisting it is to early to send the invites out.
We have a lot of out of town guests and did not do STD’s. So some of the guests don’t even know til they get our invite that we are getting married.
Sigh is it to early???

I don’t think it’s too early at all. I’m sending mine out in three weeks for my 7/30 wedding. Most everything I saw said 2-3 months, you are just about at 3 months.

We’re sending ours out 8 weeks in advance, we have out of towners from Australia but did save the dates and speak with all of our guests on a regular basis so they know we’re getting married and have plane tickets already booked, though. I would wait until the 2 month mark if I were you.

You could always send the invites to the OOTerns now and send the ones to the intowners closer to the 6 week mark if that would make your parents happy. I sent mine out about 10 weeks early because of the OOT factor, but I know my mother in law wasn’t happy about it. But really, she’s rarely happy anyway….

Not too early, especially if you didn’t do save the dates. Mine will go out in about the same timeframe as yours I think.

We were crazy and actually gave out our invitations around the holidays, so we could handle deliver most of them. No one complained and we even had some people thank us for giving them the early heads up, since our wedding is in the morning on a Friday. I say do whatever makes you feel comfortable, if they don’t want to respond so early they can always wait a month to RSVP. The way I see it brides have enough stress in their lives so if they want to send out invitations a little early they should be able to.

I would wait until the 10 week mark. I sent mine out at 7 weeks, which, while I thought was late, was really the perfect time. 12 weeks gives a lot of time for people to lose the invitations. What about sending them out at the beginning of April?
