i would say send them that way your guests know about the wedding and you kinda know about how many will attend. Most websites say about 6-8 months prior then your wedding invites should be 3-4 months

It’s totally up to you.  We sent them out because we’re getting married on a Friday, and our wedding date is prime vacation time.  If you have a lot of out of town guests or you’re getting married somewhere else, I’d also say they’re a good idea.

We sent ours 7 months from our wedding date.  Our actual invites will go out 2 months before.

Totally up to you but I think it’s a good way to inform your guests way aheand of time that the wedding will be happening so that way they don’t plan anything else on that date.

We’re getting married in the summer, which is obviously when people plan their vacations.  We’re having a lot of familiies at our wedding, so in order for people to come, I am sending out S-T-D’s.  Hehe… it would totally be my fault if they couldn’t come, too… knowing them. “If I’d only known sooner, we wouldn’t have ____.”  It’s mostly just to cover my butt.  🙂

I agree with PP, not necessary, but we are doing them. I think it definately depends on when you are getting married (if its during the popular wedding months or holiday), if most people will have to travel, or on a day other than Saturday. you still don’t HAVE to do them, but would be nice for guests if these situations apply to you.

My family had never heard of Save the Dates and looked at me funny when I talked about them. Since almost everybody has to travel over an hour to our wedding (95% of guests I would say), we sent them. I actually won free magnets from a give away on here, so it didn’t cost much at all.

I am…but mostly cause we have ALOT of family out of town/the country…etc… It’s good for people that don’t live in your area to be able to make accomodations ahead of time, especially if you really want them to go. Also some are super cute! …and thats reason enough..no?
