Why not just tell them “Oh, we’re still almost a year out. We’ll be sure to send them XX months before the wedding, so look for them in MONTH!”

I too am guessing they are most familiar with Save The Dates, and wondering why they haven’t seen one from you guys.

Not a big deal… IMO Save The Dates are more hassle than they are worth if one isn’t doing a Destination Wedding (too many tales of couples who get excited and send out too many Save-The-Date Cards… BEFORE they actually crunch their Wedding numbers to see what they can afford… then they feel bad because they can’t afford to invite people they sent Save-The-Date Cards to.  Several posts on that topic here on WBee)

If one is having a Wedding that isn’t a Destination Wedding, then the age old custom of writing friends & family who live a fair distance and would need to travel to the Wedding, is just as effect as a STD, giving them a heads-up as the details become known / solidified

Everyone else can certainly get by with waiting until the Invitations are printed and in the mail.  The normal send out timeframe is 8 to 12 Weeks prior to the Date (although there are certainly Weddings where the Invites are in the mail at the 4 Month Prior mark)

Hope this helps,
