Hi bees! Everybody except 1 local guest will be either flying from the eastern time zone or driving from SoCal to our wedding in Las Vegas this March. When should I send out Save-The-Date Cards (and invitations), given that everybody has to travel? ASAP for the STDs? We only just put our deposit down yesterday so I am eager for the next ‘task’ and this is a big one. Do you think I need to provide more info on the STD (hotel info, for example) than a typical one due to the travel required?

I’d say the STD should go out 10 months in advanced for a destination wedding. Don’t worry about hotels. The STD can have the wedding website link on it and then you can begin filling it with information about hotels, transportation, times, locations, etc.

We sent ours about six months in advance for our destination wedding. Invites we sent three months in advice with our RSVP cut-off about a month and a half in advance.

mintjulep20 : Save-The-Date Cards can go out anytime within the 12-month mark (this is for practicality – you’d be shocked how many people don’t look at the year and if they received an STD for a march 2019 wedding, in say, january 2018, they’ll assume the wedding is in 2 months).
so yeah…i’d send Save-The-Date Cards right away.
