Good question.  I was planning on sending ours just 6 weeks out because most of our people are local.  Hmmmm, maybe I should bump ours to 8-10 weeks?  I definintely wouldn’t send them 3 months ahead of time, but it depends how many Out of Town guests you have and whether you sent Save-The-Date Cards (and you did….so I don’t think they need to go out that early).

We’re getting married in September, and we’ll be *hopefully* sending our invites out around June.

It might be early, but we’re getting married on a holiday weekend, so the earlier the better I guess.

@tinylittlebird: we sent ours out 10 weeks from the date….I think 8-10 weeks is fine!

I plan to send mine 8-10 weeks out so I have time to gather RSVPs and give final counts to my caterer etc. Since people are just getting your Save the Dates I would definitely wait.

Since half our guest list is out of town, and we chose the budget conscience route of No STD’s, we’re sending ours out at about thhe 3 month mark, with an RSVP date of a month before W-Day so they know to get their tails and gear and make travel arrangements.

We’re having a destination wedding, so we sent out Save-The-Date Cards 11 months ago and will send out formal invites the first week of March.
