…to send out Save the Dates? I’m waiting on engagement pics to put on our STDs and the photog is taking forever to get them out! We have a little over 5 months to go to before the wedding and I still have to wait for the printing and mailing of the STDs before they will actually get out to people. Am I being weird about thinking this is late, or should I forgo the whole STD thing all-together?

I sent mine out at the early part of this month. I guess if you can get them back and done in the next month then sure, but after that it might as well be an invite and just not spend the money. That’s my opinion though.

Well, it is customary for the STD’s to go out earlier than what you’ll end up doing. I think they say anywhere from a year to 6 months. I sent mine out just short of a year. But if its important to you, just send them. I wouldn’t worry much about it being too late. Although, if it takes much longer, it may be an expense you could cut out.

I think its a little late to send them unless you plan on sending them within the next 2 weeks.

I think if its after 3 months, don’t bother…especially if you plan to mail the wedding invitations shortly thereafter!

I think at that point, it may be a little late 🙁 BUT, if you’re really excited about them, you could always skip the photo and do an all-text STD that’s very stylized, etc.
If you don’t end up making it work, just think of it this way: one less thing to worry about, and you’ll save a few bucks on postage (people forget that postage adds up quickly).

I’ve gotten one only 4-5 months pre-wedding before, I think it’s ok!

I would say set a goal of the first weekend of April. That will give a few month buffer between your s-t-ds and invitations.

I just sent mine out last month and I’m getting married in May!
