I am sending mine out some time in October! I just got them in the mail so I am going to start putting them together and get them out 🙂 November is definetley not too late..but I would send them out before Thanksgiving so they don’t get lost amongst Christmas cards.

We aren’t sending ours out until January or February! 

1) We have like 5% of our addresses so far and the sources for the rest are procrastinators (e.g. parents). 

2) We are trying really hard to keep our guest list down. Tongue out

I am in the same boat as lilbluebird. Getting addresses and finalizing people who we actually want to be there versus the people who have to be there is bringing me close to the guest list brink. We are around 200 people at this point and thats about 50 more people than I want to plan for, so we are trying to narrow it down a bit still.

We will be sending them soon, hopefully before November.  Fiance drew them and we are waiting on a few more tweaks before getting them printed.  We also need to finalize the guest list to be able to send them out.  Waiting on addresses from our families.

Right now my Save-The-Date Cards and envelopes are sitting beside the bed, as they have been for nearly two months.  I need the addresses of FI’s family, which his mom is procrastinating on because she doesn’t think I should be planning this soon.  I am seriously tempted to send my family’s out this week.

I’ll likely be sending mine out in early November, to have them arrive, like futuremrscollette said, before Christmas cards. I feel like I need to send them out as early as possible because most guests will be coming from out of the state.

We are not sending ours till January because we don’t want them to get lost in all the christmas stuff people get. BUT, I just ordered them today from vistaprint for only $6! also, it will be good to see how the screen-perfect colors come out on paper!

i’m going to be sending them as well. Hoping to have them done by the end of Nov. We have our engagement shoot Nov. 9th so I’ll have to wait to get a couple shots back to use for the post cards.

…starting to gather addresses and what not right now.

I sent mine out this past weekend!  My Fiance now needs to send out his half (because he is always slow like this), but we’re on our way! 

We also wanted to give extra notice as a lot of people are traveling from overseas if they can come.  And our friend is getting married two weeks before, so we wanted people invited to both to be able to plan for both.  (Both weddings are in North America)

I am sending out Save the Dates, probably as soon as I can!  We need to narrow down our guests list, then order the Save-The-Date Cards.  I hope it can all get mailed by 11.11.2011. It’s a destination wedding for our guests, so they are going to need ample time to book accomodations and hunt for decently priced flights.

We just got our engagment pictures done today. Anyone know a good website where can turn our engagment photos into save the dates? I’m hoping to send them out ASAP but was thinking I might double up ths year by doing a “Save the date /Christmas card” dueo so I can save on stamps and time. Is that tacky???

@KatieLu: Try Vistaprint or Zazzle.  Both should have lots of options!
