I think 6-12 months ahead is standard. I generally feel that the more your guests need to spend to attend the earlier you should send them out.  We have a lot of out of towners so we are sending them 7 months ahead.  Destination weddings give more notice etc.  I have gotten a STD 1 year in advance and I thought it was a bit too much time.  I have also gotten email STD and I thought it was ok.

I don’t think it’s tacky to send save the dates by email if most of your guests are tech savy and enjoy modern trends. It’s acceptable to send them out any time prior to six months before your wedding.

Just make sure you are only sending them to people who will be getting invitations and might not get cut off of your list.

You send the STD out 6 to 8 months before the wedding so you can start working on them for sure! You can do them by email if you think that is something the guests will appreciate. If you have an older crowd though it may be better to just do a traditional announcement by mail.
