We are sending out our Save The Dates this month (11 months in advance). We are planning on sending out our invitations in January (4 months in advance) since many people will need to book their flights for the wedding.

We sent out our invites about 8 weeks before the wedding.  The STDs went out about 6 months before.

Same as others, STDs went out 6 months before and our invites went out about 8-9 weeks before since everyone was traveling.

Our wedding is in June, we sent out Save the Dates in November, early December so a little over 6 months before the wedding, and we sent out the invites nearly exactly two months before
