My wedding is similar to yours…it’s where I live, but about 75-80% of my guests have to travel in.  We sent them in mid-June for a mid-March wedding. 

If you haven’t picked a date (and signed a contract solidifying it), you probably shouldn’t send the Save-The-Date Cards yet though!  Wait until that detail is done, then send them.

9-12 months out is when you send the Save-The-Date Cards typically for a destination wedding.  You do need to know the actual date though to send them out.  You don’t have to have all the logistics ironed out though, but usually the venue is booked, and that determines the date.

I created a wedding website that helped guests know when to book tickets/hotels/etc. and that went on my STD too (which was continually updated).

@MrsCreeToBe:  I think for those guests who have to travel further you should send the STDS earlier, we sent ours out 12months out, obviously you shouldnt do earlier as people could confuse the year :-). But I think in order for people to book holidays, save etc they do need plenty of time.

We just sent ours out June so about ten months out. Most of our guest are out of town but it’s a few hours away, and Fi family scattered in the south and west coast. Since you are international guest I would send them out as early as possible.
