  • Wedding: July 2008

I think you can send the STD’s as soon as you know your wedding date. I know typically it is about 9 months prior, but I have gotten one even earlier before. Just make sure you only send them to people that you are 100% inviting to the wedding.

  • Wedding: August 2008

I sent min in October 07 for an August 08 wedding.

My one regret is that I sent them to my WHOLE guest list – and ended up adding several more people later we had forgotten. We then needed to make a B list, out of these new add ons we’d over looked. Because I had already sent them an STDs to the first guest list, I HAD to invite them to the wedding and some close people  are B listed….I’m awaiting No’s to send the B list invites out.

I think I sent mine a bit early I could have waited at least a another month possibly 2.

if its a destination wedding it’s good to give as much notice. but usually it’s at least 4-6 months in advance.

  • Wedding: September 2008

Keep in mind that if you send them too early, you’re bound to inviting those people to the wedding (because if you send a save-the-date, you have to send an invite). I sent mine out in February for a September 2008 wedding, and I wish I hadn’t sent it to a few people!

  • Wedding: August 2008

I sent mine in January for my August wedding, but as soon as I knew my date I called a few long-distance friends and relatives so they could start making plans. I didn’t want to send them out before the new calendar year since mine were stickers for the calendar! It worked well and I have no guest list regrets. We did end up adding a few people who didn’t get STD’s but that doesn’t bother me!

is it a destination wedding?

I’ve always heard to send them out 6 months ahead of time.

I wanted to do STDs but the guestlist just got bigger and bigger I decided if i don’t send them. perhaps less will come.
