I sent my save-the-dates out about six months before. That seems to be the average in my area/circles. It doesn’t hurt to do it a little earlier if you want.

If your venue needs a final count a month before, I’d give yourself at least a week or two to try to track down people who don’t RSVP. So then it depends on how long you want to give people to reply. Sending invites 10 weeks ahead of time would give them four weeks before RSVPs are due, with a two-week cushion for you to track down other RSVPs. Six to eight weeks is customary, so that would only be slightly more but still pretty in line with the norm. Just my thoughts though!
