Is it a destination wedding or local?  I’m having a Destination Wedding and sent mine 10-11 months in advance

We were only engaged for 7.5 months.  So, we sent ours as soon as we picked a date and a venue.  I think it was around the 5.5-month mark.  Ours was quasi-destination (3-hr drive / most guests spent at least one night in the area).

I sent mine out at 6 months before the wedding. I think that’s the latest you should send them out, but 6-9 months is pretty normal.

I’m sending mine out 8 months before. We’re timing them to come the week of thanksgiving to get an initial RSVP

We sent ours about 6 months out but would have done earlier if we had been ready.

Fiance and I are sending ours out next month but our wedding will be Thanksgiving weekend so we wanted to let them know asap so people dont make other plans for that weekend. Also, we dont have family traveling too far to get to our wedding. 98% of our guests live no more than 2 hours away and will already be in town for the holidays so it just worked for us!
