I’ve heard 2 months even for a destination wedding. Save the dates are a must. I would probably send them 2.5 months in advance but I’ll probably be doing that even for mine (not destination). Then maybe 1 month ahead of time for the RSVP, to give people enough time in between to make definite plans.

My wedding isn’t a destination wedding, but it is being held August 9, 2008, the Saturday after a Canadian long weekend and so our invites are arriving in people’s mailboxes as I type this.  Our wedding is remaining small, just family and close friends, so we didn’t do save the dates as we knew the invites would go out early and everyone would know about the wedding MONTHS in advance.  We are giving people two months to RSVP so that they can work out vacation time and such…  We’ll see how it works out.

Generally 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding for invitations, and ask people to RSVP 2 to 3 weeks before.  That gives you time to make some phone calls after the RSVPs are due and before you have to give the final numbers to the caterer.
