With the Christmas cards! They’ll all know, really, before then, but it will solidify details for them, i guess.

Our wedding is in March of 2011, and I sent ours out this past May 31st. I wanted to make sure everyone has enough time to plan. If I thought I could get away with sending the invitations now, I would.

All of my family will be traveling for my wedding which will be in June of 2011. So I am sending our STDs next week! I want to give them ample time to make travel arrangements. I can’t wait. It made my whole week when they came in the mail from the printer last Monday.

I sent mine 5 months before the wedding.  I would have sent them sooner but my brother’s wedding was shortly before mine and I didn’t want to steal any of their thunder so I waited until after their wedding to send it.  In your case I would send them super early because memorial day is a really expensive and busy weekend to travel.  I would send them 6-8 months early…. and be sure to include room block information so your guests can go ahead and book hotel rooms.

My wedding will be July 9, 2011. I’m sending mine out in mid July…Mainly because I’m too hyped up not to send them out as it’s been my main project for the past 3 months, as I couldn’t do anything else !!!  I think anytime at this point is fine and fabulous send them out 🙂

My wedding is the weekend before yours…half our guest list is also traveling. I am thinking I’ll do ours in November before xmas cards go out. I don’t want to wait too long, but then I don’t want to do them too early where it ends up slipping people’s minds.

I am getting married the same weekend!  And more than 1/2 my guests will be travelling – but everyone who is invited knows when and where the wedding is.  I am going to send mine in November before holiday cards and such.  I feel like now is just way too soon…but that is just me!

I think I might send mine out around October or November.. That way it will give my guests enough time to STD.

Hi date twin!  About half of our guests will be traveling from out of town and I’m hoping I get to send out the save-the-dates no later than the end of August. I want to give our guests plenty of heads up so that they can make coordinate.
