When are you guys sending out Save-the -Dates?? My mom is a photographer and she did our engagement photos and made a photo montage postcard from it into our save-the-date. She wanted to print and send them NOW…I think it’s too soon. For June, I thought maybe Jan or Feb? When are you guys doing it?

We have already sent ours out- we sent them out in the middle of June actually. We do have a number of out of town guests though.
Also several of our friends and cousins are getting engaged/married now so we wanted to let our guests know when our date was so that they could plan ahead. We already know of 2 other weddings the same day as ours!
I would send them out in the next month or else just wait and send an invitaiton.

It kind of depends on what kind of wedding your having, which weekend you’re having it, how many international or Out of Town guests you want to invite, that kind of thing. We sent out the equivalent of an e-STD around 10 months before our wedding but we were inviting my family from overseas so we wanted everyone to know.

We’re planning on sending ours out this month. We have a lot of out of town guests, and wanted them to have advance notice. I actually wanted to send them out a lot earlier, but they keep getting pushed back.

we sent ours out already actually. I was excited to send them cause they for DIY by my mom and i and because we sent some engagement photos with them. it’s really up to you but i would do it soon, you don’t want to wait til too close til the wedding, cause then there’s not much time in between them and the actual invites

I think the general rule may be about 6 months in advance or earlier if it is a destination wedding or during a popular weekend. Ours will probably be sent out in November at some point. Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, we won’t be taking our engagement pictures until the end of October, so ours won’t go out any earlier than that. We wanted to get them out sometime this month, but school and life gets in the way 🙂

I was thinking of sending ours November 1st. I want them to go out before the holidays, because I don’t want them to get lost in the Christmas card shuffle. I also don’t want to send them too early though. We’re not having a ton of Out of Town guests, but it is Father’s Day weekend. Plus, I’m REALLY excited to send them!
