Did you do Save the Dates? Normal etiquette says to mail them 6-8 weeks before the wedding. For our wedding June 20th we mailed them the last week of April. I would say for you probably the first or second week of March?

I gave 1 month. My friend super slacked and only gave 3 weeks, and she said people returned them right away! I think if you give people TOOOO much time, they put it aside and sometimes even forget to send them back! I think if they see the return date is coming up soon, they just turn around and return them as soon as they get them. (This is all speculation.)
If you sent Save-The-Date Cards, people should be aptly warned that your wedding is coming up, but if you didn’t maybe it’s better to send out your invites a little earlier (1.5 to 2 mos before due date).

Well we did send out STD’s but did them in a very non-traditional way. We sent them out in an e-mail. We didn’t really get any responses though (but I wasn’t expecting to). I know that no matter when I send the invitations, I’ll end up having to make some phone calls. I just didn’t have any idea of when they should be sent! Thanks for the input!
