    We are sending ours out in January for our August wedding. I know that is early, but many people coming to our wedding will have to fly. If we had more local people, I would do more like 5 to 6 months.

    I think 6-8 months is best.

    Many people plan summer vacations so Bees that are having their wedding during the summer months should probably send out the STD’s around 8 months so that guests can plan accordingly.

    I sent out STD’s around the 7th month mark.  The only thing I regret is that I sent out cards to people that in the end I really did not want to invite to the wedding.  I invited them anyway because of the STD.  My feeling is, is that so much can change with friends in 7 months and some of the people we invited I really do not plan on seeing after the wedding.  It is not really related to any sort of drama, I just do not feel that connected to these people anymore.

    My advice, 7-8 months before but really think before you send…….. 🙂

    I would say if you’re having a wedding where guests are having to travel, about 8-9 months. More local guests, 6 months.

    I voted 9 months, especially in regards to out of town guests.

    4-6 months is a good time frame.  If you had significasnt travel (meaning, flights are involved), I’d say send them earlier.  But since you don’t, there’s no need to send them earlier than 6 months.
