ellagrace:  Some sources say up to a year in advance, some say 6 months. I sent mine out as soon as we found a venue- 8 months in advance. Our venue is not a destination, but a 2-3 hour drive for most people, so it was mostly to give them a heads-up that it was going to take up a whole day for sure and they might want to consider spending the night. 

So for March 16, your STDs can go out anytime between now and September. Your invites should go out sometime in the first couple weeks of January for the beginning of March, or as late as the end of January for the end of March.

I sent our STDs out 9 months (December for August wedding), so I would say to send yours July-September. Almost all of our guests need to travel, so I wanted to give ample time for booking flights, hotels, etc.  Invitations typically go out 6-8 weeks ahead of time.

I plan on sending mine as soon as we figure out a date and secure a venue, even if its a year and a half before the wedding, because We have been engaged 2 years and still can’t plan for  wedding because of our stage in our careers right now, so everyone always asks us “so whens the date?”

ellagrace:  We sent our STDs about 8 months ahead of time, and we’re sending our invitations out like 9 or 10 weeks ahead of our date (but we have a lot of out of town guests coming).

I sent my save the dates out the first week of January and invitations are getting sent out the end of this month (March) for my wedding on June 6th 🙂 Response date is May 15th…1 week before our unbooked hotel rooms get released back to the public, 2 weeks before my caterer needs a final headcount and 3 weeks before the wedding 🙂 My immediate family is 6 hours away so I wanted them to have plenty of time to plan their trip and respond!
