My wedding is 11 months away and 95% of our guestlist is from out of town.
Is it too early to send out STD cards in about a month? I know you are really supposed to send them 8 months before the wedding, but considering that most people will have to get hotels, I thought I should send them out earlier.
What do you think?

You really shouldn’t send them earlier than 6 months, even 8 months is pushing it!
Keep in mind that the earlier you send them, there is a bigger chance that you will change your mind about who you want to invite, and of course you HAVE to invite people once you’ve sent them.
(even for me; we had an engagment party 6 months before, and I’m already kind of regretting that I now have to invite some of the people to the wedding that we invited to that!)

I sent mine at 9 months. We had tons of people traveling to us from accross the country and some out of the country. People started immediatley planning flights. You know your guests and how much time they may need. If you feel like it’s appropriate, then it probably is.
