I’m thinking of sending mine after new years, 8 mths ahead should be ok, i think.

I hear you, I would send them out right away, but haven’t even created them

I’ve already ordered mine and itching to send. I have a lot of out of town family, so I plan to send early so they can plan. I’ve been invited to a lot of out-of-town weddings, and always felt like the STDs/invitations came so late! They “say” you should send 6-9 months out, but earlier if travel is involved.

My Wedding is in Vegas so every single person is traveling.  I plan on sending mine out in January.  What kind of helped me is that I wanted to know how big this wedding would be to set a budget so I created an private event page on FB.  So now they all know they will be invited and can make plans one year in advance.

Im getting married in October 2012 and I plan to send my STD’s in January,plan on putting our website on the STD’s so I need the time to get that up and running. And then my invites will be sent out early July.

Either way u need to send them out at a decent time. Give your family and friends from out of town, time to make plans, save, etc.

@Willow1991: I, also thought the 1st of the year. A friend of mines suggested that I send them out with my christmas card but that might be overload… not sure yet what my final verdict will be but when I do decide, I will be sure to share.

We already sent ours since the wedding is across the country for most people.  Figured they should start planning their vacation/flights.

I already designed mine and have them printed- I am still working on getting addresses and things.  I will probably send them in October or November since we are getting married in a very popular area where hotels book up up to a year in advance.  I want to make sure our guests have time to book a hotel as everyone is out of town.

I’m sending mine out to the “a” listers a year before. Invites 6 months prior. B list goes out after A list RSVPs

We’re planning on sending ours out at the beginning of the year.

@anonymouscabage: THat is really early, I’d be concerned that lots of guests cannot know that far in advance whether or not they can attend with certainty. 3 months is usually the absolute max earliest to send them out by, I’d rethink that one.
