I was always under the impression that 8 weeks before the wedding was standard. Did you send Save the dates to give people a heads up?

I did 3 months for out of towners. I think 10-12 weeks out is fine.

I think it depends on your guests ultimately. 6 to 8 weeks prior is the standard. However, if you are having a lot of out of town guests or a destination wedding, it would definitely be a good idea to send them earlier. I am having mainly in-town guests (or guests within an hour or two of the wedding) so we are actually hand delivering all except a few of ours. My wedding date is May 14th as well. Our wedding is basically family and they all know the date and time…the invite, for us, is just a formality.

I think it depends on if you sent out Save the Dates. If you have, a standard 8 weeks should be fine, but if you haven’t, you might want to give it some extra time (maybe 10-12 or so weeks)
