    @NicoleLyn1218:  personally always believed STD should come out 6-8 months ahead of time depending on logistics such as holiday weekend, how many OOT guests, etc..

    although it would be nice to save stamps and send them with christmas cards, i personally would overlook it bcus it would be too far out in advance.

    @NicoleLyn1218:  I’m personally in the camp of sending them as early as possible within a year from the wedding, but I voted January.  I receive a #@&! ton of mail in December and I would hate for it to get lost in the piles of cards, bills, and catalogs/promotions.

    • Wedding: August 2014

    I’m getting married in August 2014 and I’m sending mine out in August.  Since my wedding is on that labour day long weekend, I know people like to go on vacation or take trips and leave and all that so I’m doing it as early as possible so that they get notice right away of what they should be deciding on for my wedding.

    Plus some of the people I’m sending it off too are out of towners so the earlier the better for them in case they need to book days off and book flights and all that.

    I was going to send my wedding invitations out at the end of December, but was warned against it because they would get “lost” in the shuffle of holiday and New Year’s cards. I would wait until at least late January to send them out.
