You send them before the invitations are sent out.  I think it’s about 2 months or so before you’d send out the invitations, but I’m sure other posters will correct me if I’m wrong.  I haven’t done so yet so I’m not 100% sure.

@zarra27: Save the dates go out before the invitations.

They are a way of saying to your guests “hey, I’m getting married on x date in x city so block off the calendar and details are to come.”

Then you send out the invite with the RSVP cards and additional details about the time of the wedding.

Before invites well in advance like 6-8 months.. To just say hey were engaged we are getting married on this day.. Keep that in the back of your mind so you dont get blind sided with the invite and have no money saved for travel etc. Then invites go out about a month and a half or so before the date that has all the details of the wedding. Has all the info about the ceremony reception times etc. But if you are doing or have done a wedding website then that info should be on your save the date.

the save the dates are completely separate from the invitations, and sent well in advance.  exactly when you elect to send them depends on your event and the date and location.  the general standards are as follows:

destination wedding:  8 – 12 months in advance

local wedding / popular weekend (holiday etc):  8 – 12 months in advance

local wedding: 6 – 8 months
