The standard 6-8 weeks is sufficient, just like any other party invitation.  Maybe push it to 10 if you really want to and feel like you must.  RSVPs due about a week before your absolute dead last date you must give your caterer your final headcount (which is usually about 3-7 days before the wedding).

That time frame is suitable for even a destination wedding, especially if you sent save the dates.  That was the whole purpose of the save the date – to know to keep it open, so invitations don’t need to go out earlier.

That sounds reasonable given that your Save-The-Date Cards went out a while ago already.

letsdothis123 :  3 hour drivef can easily turn in to 4 or 5 hour drive depending on traffic and weather conditions. So, it would be a pleasant surprise for ALL the guests to have welcome bags. If you have time, you can make different types for hotel guests vs. others. For e.g., the hotel guests may be able to use fancy soaps but other guests could use some fancy…….. chocolate? undecided (I need to go to sleep!)
