First how many couples are we talking about? 4 or 10?

I would forgo the save the dates since that is not necessary since as you said you just met them and in another 4 months a lot could happen.

Then when its time for the invites I would invite those only that you think of as friends and not as group members. Those that you truly think you would call up to get together should the group dissolve. You do not have to invite everyone if its a large group. However, I would be careful to not only leave one or two couples out if the rest are invited.

I would suggest you wait and see, like  lefeymw
 suggests, wait to give them invitation, but not save-the-dates.


If it helps: our criteria for inviting friends from specific settings (for us it’s coworkers), is only if we see them socially outside that particular setting; are they on our guest list.

I would wait until you get closer to your wedding, but Darling Husband and I had the same dilema. We had friends that we clicked with right away and we ended up inviting them. They are now some of our besties.

I don’t think the length of time matters, I think it’s the quality of the friendship. I only started working at my current job 3 months ago, but I’m already planning on inviting two of my co workers who I get along with really well, whereas people I have known for three years or longer may not be getting an invite.
