I already sent them but only because our wedding is on the holiday weekend so wanted to give advanced notice.  Probably 6-8 months out is sufficient 🙂

Did you pick your STD out yet?

I’m May 18th 2013, and planning on sending out Save the Dates in early September right after August vacations.

I just ordered mine, I’m planning on sending them out right away. My wedding will be on Catalina Island, just off the coast of LA, CA.  It will end up being a mini destination even for our locals.  About 80% of our guests live outside LA.  I don’t think there is such thing as too early.  Friends of ours got married in Yosemite & sent out stds 14 months in advance…

We are probably sending ours out in October – ordering in September. We’re doing our e-pics next weekend (not this Saturday but teh following), and I want to use one of our e-pics on our STDs.

Wow you are all send your save the dates early. We are planning on sending ours out as our holiday card with the saying Marry Christmas. My FI thinks I’m nuts for being so on top of things, but you have all got me beat.

I just ordered mine from Minted this week, and I’m trying to get them out by the end of the month or beginning of next month. Like others said, it’s a holiday weekend so I want people to know in advance.

@aurelia9: We did DIY. A girlfriend took a picture of us that we set up outside, and then I used adobe illustrator and organized the font etc. I then had them printed at Paperland Canada Inc. in markham. They print pretty cheap  and great quality on a variety of different paper. I will try to attach a picture of what we had printed. We then added small crystals that I got at Michaels for like $3 for an assorted pack, where you see the 2 pink dots in the picture. I think each save the date came to about 30 cents.
