I’ll be sending mine as soon as I get motivated to finish addressing all of them!  (about 7 months in advance for our June wedding).

I’m 08/07/10 and I was planning on already having them out, but Future Mother-In-Law and my mom said it would be best to wait at the 8 month mark. I already have them just need to send them out.

We sent them at the nine month point… it was too early, considering there are some people we sent them to that we probably could have cut off our guest list in hindsight. 😉 Not anymore!

8 months out… We’re having the wedding where we live, and 90% of our guests will have to fly to get here, so we wanted to leave plenty of time for everyone who wanted to come to plan their trips!

I’m planning to send mine out at the six month mark before August 2010.  Reason being is that I’m hoping (but not holding my breath) that some guests who know they absolutely cannot attend will let me know at that point, and I can adjust my invite list accordingly.

Also, I am not registered for gifts, do not want a bridal shower or bachelorette party of any sort.  I’m thinking that the STD will inform folks of the actual wedding date, although I’ve done my best to inform folks by word of mouth.

We’ve sent ours already. Way early, I know, but a quarter of our guest list is not only out of town but out of country, and the difference in airfares buying a year in advance compared to six months in advance can be around £500 / $800….

We planned to send them at the 6 month mark, but now it’s 5 months out, and we still need a few more guests’ addresses!  At least they’ll get the Save the Date before the holidays, and the invitation after. : )

No later than February 2010, so that our Out of Town guests have sufficient notice, so that they can plan to save for the expensive holiday travel since our event is during Thanksgiving week-end.

We sent ours 8 months before.  It was a destination wedding and everyone had to travel, so we wanted to make sure everyone had enough time to make plans if they wanted to come.

We wanted to have ours out already, but now it looks like they will be in the mail next week sometime, so that will be just under the 8 month mark.
