    I’d say the Save-The-Date Cards would be great for those out of town or state. But not necessary. And many of those who we sent ours out to in August have lost theirs already. At least 1/2 of them did. Wish I would have taken my friends idea and made the STD magnets

    Wedding invitations are supposed to go out 2-3 months before the wedding. 

    The timeline for save the dates can vary greatly but should be sent no later than 6 months out (or they are a waste IMO).

    You definitely do not need to do Save-The-Date Cards. I had a Friday-night, semi-destination wedding on a holiday weekend, and I still didn’t send Save-The-Date Cards. I did, however, send my invitations about nine weeks in advance of my RSVP date (about 12 weeks before my wedding.)

    If you’re sending save-the-dates you’d need to be 100% sure of your wedding date and send them out in the next few weeks. That said, you definiely don’t need them and if you’re not sure of your date, do not send them!! They say save-the-dates go out 6-8 months before the wedding and invitations 2-3 months before. I would try to space them out by at least 4 months.

    If you have a lot of out of town guests coming, it’s nice to let people know when the wedding will be so they can plan. But, there are lots of ways to do it that don’t require save the dates. If there aren’t too many people, just give them a call or send them an e-mail. A lot of my fiance’s family is from out of town, but instead of sending save the dates, when we met up before Christmas we gave everyone the date then.
