I will be sending mine out about 8 months before the wedding.. I don’t think there’s a typical time frame, it’s whenever you want. I’m excited for them to go out, so I don’t want to wait.

Like PP, we’re doing a little less than a year out because our wedding is during a high travel season and way Out of Town for many of our guests. It kind of depends on your guest list and many factors described above to figure out what makes sense for you.

We just ordered our STDs two-days-ago (squee!) and we plan on having them out by August, so seven months in advance. More than half of our guests are out of state, coming from all over the country, so we want to give them plenty of time to plan and budget.

Ours will be out around the 8 month mark. We will have quite a few people coming in from out of town so my mother is seriously stressing about me getting them out – even though EVERYONE already knows the date.


My BFF who is getting married in November just sent hers out two weeks ago.

Maybe she got STDs and invitations confused? Sending out STDs 3-4 months out before the wedding would really be pointless because you are about to send your invitations out a month later. I have yet to get my STDs in order because we are taking our e-pics tomorrow and I want the pics on the STDs. If I wasn’t having my wedding on a holiday weekend, I would have ended up skipping this step. We’re behind because we just changed the date to this Nov. in May and we are now scrambling with vendors and other things. 6 months before time is good.
