@AndysCraftsNmore:  We just took ours to the post office and our wedding is August 16 of this year. If that helps. They say 6 to 8 months is the norm with the 8 months being for people with destination weddings so they give people more time.

I think 6 months to a year is standard, depending on your location/date!

Longer for holidays and destination weddings!

I’d say 8 months in advance would be good, so perhaps in February?  I sent mine out 8 months out so my FI’s family from out of state would have plenty of notice.

I think as long as you are less than 12 months out from your wedding day…send them when they are ready!  We are getting married early September and sent ours out last week.  We have quite a few people travelling.
