    I sent mine like, at just about 6 months exactly.  I didn’t want to skip it, though, since we have a lot of people out of town that we are inviting, so it would be helpful to give a little heads up.  So I think that is the biggest factor.

    I always thought you send them around the 5 to 6 month mark and then formal invitations about 6 to 8 weeks before?  Maybe I’m wrong..

    I think you should send them out at the 6 month mark. Because we didn’t get our addresses together until right before we sent out our invites, we never sent out Save-The-Date Cards.

    yeah usually Save-The-Date Cards go out 6 to 12 months in advance….more than 6 months when you have a destination wedding so I think you are good. I won’t be sending mine out until 6 months before the wedding.

    We have a 5.5 month engagement and sent our Save-The-Date Cards with about 4.5 months to go.   We have a lot of out of state guests and wanted to give them a heads up, but because we have a short engagement we couldn’t send them out sooner.  You should still be fine, and people will appreciate the heads up!

    It’s usually 6-8 months, I think.  Just try and get them done, soon!  Otherwise it may be a waste of money since the invites will be close behind.

    I think it’s fine!  Some people only have a 6-month engagement and send them out right away.

    I’m also in the camp that you don’t NEED save the dates – so if it’s too much work/hassle, just scrap it!

    I think 5-6 months is fine. Always thought that was fine. I’d hurry up on the save the dates & send them out within a week.

    I think as long as you get them out and done now you’re good.  Six months before isn’t bad.

    I sent mine out at right around 5 months. I know 6 is the standard for Save-The-Date Cards but I found ones that I loved and wanted to send them anyway. Go for it!
