geesfern86 :  If I were you, I would send the STD’s no later than 3rd week of October so people can receive them before the end of October.. You don’t wanna wait too long because your wedding is in July. There’s a high chance people are making plans for summer vacations. Plus if you wait til next month, the STD’s might start getting caught in between the Christmas chaos right after Thanksgiving.

Hi! I’m getting married June 2017 and we just got our magnets in the mail, too :)! Planning on sending them out at the end of October/very beginning of November, making it 8 months before the wedding. Our wedding planner told us that any time after the 12 month mark will work!

geesfern86 :  hi bee i think you should wait until after the holidays are over.. January would be a good time to send them out and send out your wedding invitations late april give yourself some room for B Listers. Dont be surprised some A listers will decline and you shall need a back up plan for sure!

geesfern86 :  6 to 8 months is custom. Id go closer to 6 if the wedding was local, and closer to 8 if they have to travel.

Half of our guests have to travel, so i opted right around the 7 month mark.

I plan on sending mine out 5-6 months before, I’m kinda hoping some family members can’t come…..

but the ones I truly want to come are close anyway.

My wedding is also July 2017 and I sent my Save the Dates in September! It will be a trip overseas for about half our guests so I wanted to give people lots of time to book flights etc.

April wedding, sent our STDs out in July. Everyone will be travelling from out of state for the wedding so we wanted to get them out early.

August 2017 and sending now. We have lots of out of state guests and it is always expensive to fly into where we live. The earlier they can book, the cheaper it will be.

1 year in advance – only because we have a lot of out-of-country guests and wanted to give them time to figure out if they could book flights etc

  • Wedding: May 2017

I just had my engagement photos taken Thursday. I should get them back this week sometime, I will order the STD’s and send them out as soon as they get in so the last week of October for my May 27, 2017 wedding which is a holiday weekend. However, almost every single guest is already aware of the date… so this is more of a keep sake I guess.
