I would highly suggest sending out Save The Dates in advance (anytime from now to 6 months before hand I think would be a good time line), to give family & friends a heads up. Some families may make plans with their significant others side of the family – knowing several months ahead of time that a event is coming up with travel expected is not only a big realeif for them, but may ensure more of your family be able to make it!

Send Save-The-Date Cards ASAP, preferably with hotel and travel info. Try to think of when the best travel deals will be available, and let that create your timeline.

If you send out Save-The-Date Cards by the end of the month, you should send out invitations around the beginning of June at the latest. Most of my guests are from out of town, too, but even though I sent out Save-The-Date Cards 5 months in advance, I found that none of them made travel arrangements until they got the "real" invitation a month and a half later. Still, since you know that it will be a difficult time, the earlier the better.
