I’m a January bride, and mine went out this week. I had actually planned to send them out about a month ago, but got really busy…You’d be fine to send them out any time now I think.

I’m a January bride also and am planning to send mine out at the beginning-mid July.  I think standard STD time is around 6 months prior but depends on if you are having a Destination Wedding wedding, if it’s around the holiday, etc.

I am not in February, but I am in March. I wanted to send them out exactly one year ahead, but things didn’t work out that way, so my plan is to send them on the last day of this month. I hope to have our engagement pictures by then to send out with them.

@bunny I think August is perfectly fine as it is about 6 months until your wedding. Because of all the holidays right before our wedding we are going to do them right in July to give our Out of Town guests enough time to plan for flights, hotels, etc.  I don’t think you need to worry; I think that’s just perfect 🙂

sending mine out early june. we got the final version today–they look awesome! but a huge number of our guests are out of towners and out of staters, so we are going for the 8 month deadline 🙂

I’m an April 2011 bride and we are sending ours out this week; however, we are expecting a lot of out-of-town guests, so we want them to be able to plan in advance.

my goal is 8 mo deadline (june 26) but if they go out a little late i won’t worry about it. most people already know where we’re getting married and when and won’t have to book flights. its just a matter of booking hotel rooms which they prob wont do 8 mo out anyways!

We sent ours out in May, but only because we are having a destination wedding.  I think 6 months out is fine.

okay feb brides..i HAVE my save the dates now, and i’ve sent them out to our parents and wedding party. i’m waiting to send them out to everyone else until we get some confirmation from our venue on when they plan on rebuilding it (it got struck by lightening). i probably could send them now, but i just want to be 100% sure with everything venue related, since it directs people to our website and that has the hotel information on it (and the hotel is really close to the venue).

the STD has 4 photos on it, but here’s what we chose for the main one..it’s one of our engagement photos from our fabulous photographer 🙂
