We told out of town family 1.5 years in advance in person, sent save the dates out 10 months in advance, and then sent invitations out 10 weeks prior. We still had a number of out of town guests not come.  Regardless, I would give as much notice as possible because it is a holiday weekend, and an expensive time to travel.

I’m getting married the first weekend of May, and we just sent our save the dates. Our venue is 2 hours away from our hometown, and none of our guests live in the immediate area (everyone lives at least 2 hours away). Also, 75% of our guests will be traveling from the southern states, so we want them to have time to book flights and whatnot.
