okay, my wedding is in May of next year(the 19th). The person that I want to take our engagement photos is booked until the 1st of November and there is a 3 week waiting period to get the photos back. If I book shoot on the first of November I was thinking that I could do a package deal with the STD and my Christmas cards and send them out the beginning of December. Is this too late to send STD’s out for a wedding in May?

I think December is plenty of time for a May wedding. I believe the guideline is 6 months for save-the-dates so you’d be fine. My fiance and I actually didn’t get ours in the mail until about 3-4 months before the wedding b/c we were waiting for spring weather to do our engagement photos. The most important people already had known the date for several months though so it wasn’t a huge deal.

Five months for Save-The-Date Cards is enough time. Plus you are killing 2 birds with one stone by sending them out together.

I think the only hard and fast rule is for invitations. Save-The-Date Cards can be sent out any time before that.
