Send them to all of your guests at the same time. I have family that is local and if they would have gotten a bit offended if I send them to other people versus them. Also, this way you only have to prepare one set of Save-The-Date Cards versus two seperate mailings.

For Save-The-Date Cards I would say 6 months is plenty of time. Anything sooner and it may be forgotten. It’ll be difficult for people to find any airline deals sooner than 6 months out anyway. Just my 2 cents.

Hi there! I had the same situation (but I’m an Oahu girl)…I sent everything out same time.  In part ’cause of what babagrlshell said (don’t wanna offend anyone unintentionally), but also ’cause I feared that some locals might make plans to go to the Mainland when I wanted them to be here!

I sent mine out in Jan ’06 for a May ’07 wedding…which was perhaps not the smartest thing, ’cause a couple uncles/aunties thought it was "this" May, not "next" — good thing they all had kids to point out the year written on the card.  So I think you’ll be good w/ your time line.

Yeah, they might not be able to book flights, but in my experience, some of my friends need the time to save the money to afford a trip here, so the year+ advance notice really helped them save up $ and vacation time.
