I sent mine out 10 weeks in advance. Some took WEEKS ot get there. Not sure why. But I got super tired of going "wheres my save the date? when’s your weding?" etc for out of town guests. Just make sure they know they don’t have to rsvp by like, august. This also lets us activate our B list sooner. But, we invited 210 people. We have 80 yes’ and 6 weeks to go, so it’s nice to know the definites off the bat.

How noticeable is the special postmark?  If it’s something that you think would just be neat to have, what if you mailed one of the invitations to yourself as a test-run within the 60 day period as a memento for yourself.  I would worry much more about people misplacing the invitations than the likelihood of them noticing a special postmark, but if you have a lot of philatelists on the guest maybe it’d be worth it!

Most people don’t notice that stuff at all. I think that if I got an invite that early I would be kind of confused. Perhaps a save the date postcard or mailing with hotel information or things like that would be acceptable.
