    I wouldn’t send them any sooner than 8 weeks.

    Normally I would say maybe it’s a bit early, but since it’s Columbus Day Weekend, people might need a reminder just so they don’t make plans.

    Did you send save the dates? If you did, it may be a little early, if not it wouldn’t be a bad idea to send them within the next two weeks.  That gives your guests two full months ahead of time!

    Not many places get Columbus Day off anymore (I certainly dont and I work at an university!). So, I think it is a bit soon. But if you have lots of kids coming, I could see it being beneficial.

    @jackieemma86:  Ok I think 8 weeks should be ok since you did STD’s.

    I’m sending mine tomorrow. How many Out of Town guests do you have? A very large majority of our list has to travel so we’re trying to get them out as soon as we can

    We also have a lot of guests coming from out of state (MD, NC, NY, GA, OH, NH).  MD is close lol…we’re in VA so we’re not worried about sending them out early for travel concerns but I wanted to get the others out.

    We sent ours a couple weeks ago, and our date is later than yours! I think you’ll hear a lot of 8 week quotes from The Wedding Books, but that’s super traditional. I think up to 3 months is entirely acceptable, and 8 weeks is way too short if you think you might have a B list.
