We mailed ours right at the 7 month mark. If we mailed them any later than that I wouldn’t have done it.

We’re planning on sending ours at the first of the year – so the 6 month mark.

Anyone know if that changes for a destination wedding?

@Paiger8:  It depends how far the destination is and if people need to put deposits down in advance. If the location requires major travel (more than 4 – 5 hours), I’d try to send them out 10 or so months in advance, or as soon as you know the details.

I’d try to send them out 3 months in advance of any deposits/reservations being due so people have time to save.

Not sure if that helps.

We sent ours out about 6.5 months in advance, but we only had an 8 month engagement and needed that much time to get our date & venue picked, etc.
