We are having tons of Out of Town guests (some from overseas) for our June wedding and I just sent out my Save-The-Date Cards this week (7 month mark).  I think you’ll be just fine at the 6 month mark.

We are having our wedding in the US and we have family coming from both the US and Canada. I sent ours out at the 8 month mark. I will be sending the invitations at the 3 month mark. Times are tough right now for almost everyone, so I wanted to give everyone that wants to come an opportunity to save up for it. I think you should send yours out now because I am sure a lot of your guests will need the extra time to plan. Also, a lot of companies make their employess put in for the next year’s time off at the end of the previous year, so if you wait too long, some of your guests may not be able to come because they won’t be able to get the time off from their jobs.

I think the sooner the better – so, my vote is AT LEAST 9 months.

I think the sooner you can get them out, the better. It’s nice to give people as much notice as you can, if you can have yours done at the 9 month mark, then why not send them off?

I don’t really see any reason to wait? The sooner you let your guests know, the more time they will have to plan for it. I don’t see a downside to getting them out as early as possible.

I don’t see a downside in getting them out earlier, but I also think that 6 mos. is plenty of time. There’s no need to buy plane tickets 24 weeks in advance.
