i think it’s average to send out invites 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. longer if you have a lot of OOT guests.

depending on your guests, if you sent out STD’s, etc. i think you could fare either way… people may have plans, but also a good chance that you’ll still be okay. any estimate on when you’ll be able to send them??

I think The Knot (www.theknot.com) has a checklist with a timeline.  Super helpful!

i definitely say 8 weeks. but most of my family lives in canada, so they need alittle more time to prepare.

did you send out STDs? If so, you should be fine. 🙂

I did mine 3 months in advance for international guests, 2 months for locals. Did you do save the dates?

Mine were sent about 9.5 weeks out.  This was because the majority of our guests are OOT.

You should be fine 🙂 I’m sending mine out between 8-10 weeks out because we have a lot of OOTers

We’re *cross my fingers* going to have them in the mail 2 months (8 weeks) prior to the wedding. Which means I have less then a week to finish them! Eek!
