Nearly all of our guests are Out of Town, so I was thinking of sending the invitations really early (like Dec. or Jan.) to give our Out of Town (and out of state) people time to make arrangements and save up so they can buy plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc. Is around 6 months too long or am I okay to send them out in December?

@kayrie95: What about just doing a save the date to your out of town guests? We sent little business card size ones out with our Christmas cards So we postage costs were minimal. Just 5 pieces of nice card stock and price of printing.

@SapphireSun: That might work. We’ll be visiting the out of state family in December so I could give out the save the dates in person then and not have to worry about postage for theirs. I’m operating on a pretty small budget, so I’m trying to keep all costs at a minimum.

yeah, i agree with doing save the dates. you can also send save the dates online. i used punchbowl.com for mine. but i still had people asking “when’s your wedding?” so i think they just looked at it once and then forgot about it. an actual card may be better. they can put it on their fridge and see it every day.

@lilchicana: I don’t think online save the dates would be a go for me. Many of my family members are… technologically challenged. I think people tend to remember things better with a physical reminder, anyway, so perhaps it’s for the best. I wish I could just do everything online… it seems so much easier to me.

I am doing a Destination Wedding wedding, so I sent my save the dates out last week – including our website where they can find ALL travel information. Since they already have the important info that is on the website, I’m sending my invitations out in early Feb.
