Well, I have no idea if I’ll be sending them out before or after my shower…but I’m planning on sending them out early, definitely. Almost all of our guests are out of town, so we’ll probably send them out more like 2-3 months in advance. Our save-the-dates will go out a year to the date.

Our wedding is August 8th- we sent our invites out at the beginning of May

You can send out invites when it is convenient for you- the nice thing about having them out early, people are able to mark their calendars and have your event scheduled before anything else can interefere.

also, people have alot more time to RSVP which makes it nicer for you having time to for sure get them all back- Since you’re getting married at teh end of august i would DEFINATELY get them sent out asap

I’ve never heard the after-the-shower rule. Since everyone attending the shower will assume she is also invited to the wedding, it doesn’t seem like it would be a problem to send them either way. I’d say as long as you get them out within that 6-8 week window, it is perfectly fine.

Just don’t forget to get them weighed before buying stamps! We were stuck with non-wedding stamps because our invites were too heavy 🙁

Our wedding is August 7th 2009. I started sending out wedding invites on June 8th and I hopefully sent my last invitation today! Hooray!

We are also Aug 22/09.  We’re sending ours out at the end of this week (if I can get them done in time!)  – so that’ll be 8 weeks before the wedding.
