we are doing a destination wedding and we mailed ours out 6 months in advance so people could make travel plans and request the time off work– we also did save the dates 1 year in advance…. are you doing save the dates?? most of our family is flying from Wisconsin to our wedding location in Florida.

Our wedding is about 3 hours from us and about half of our guests.  The remainder will be coming from all over the country.  We mailed our invites Feb. 1 for our May 1 wedding.  But, we had a hold on the hotel block that expired in March, so we wanted our guests to have ample time to make their reservations.

stahlkl- Most of my family is flying from clearwater, fl to wisconsin for my wedding!

I say send them whenever you want, most guests won’t know the proper invititation ettiquette timeline anyways.
