So my date is 9/21/13, we are sending out our save the dates by mid-next month however I have no idea when I should send out the actual invites. I am making them myself so I want to leave plenty of time to get them made.

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
6 weeks in advance is standard; 8 is recommended if there are a lot of Out of Town guests.
ETA: if you send them too early (and this happens to brides all the time on here complaining about their RSVP counts), you will have a low response rate as people will not be able to commit for quite a while still… so they will put the invitation aside for later (since they have months until they need to/can decide or ask time of work or arrange childcare, etc) and will forget about it until you call 2.5 week before the wedding to inquire about their RSVP since you didn’t get it back yet.
