    You are supposed to mail STD’s about 4-6 months before.  Anything sooner and people may forget or it may get lost, thrown out etc.  Anything later and it may as well be an invitation.

    6 months is usually best– much more than that and people will likely forget.  

    If you’re looking for wedding type things, have you started looking at venues, or interviewing caterers & bakeries? How about honeymoon planning? Those were my favorite parts 🙂

    We’re sending ours out ~1 year. We should be getting our engagement pictures back soon, then I need to order the Save-The-Date Cards and then they’ll get sent out. We have 85%+ Out of Town guests, so it’ll just be easier to send them now with the URL for our wedding website, than to answer a billion questions when we see people.
