I think I’d be sending those out well before Thanksgiving.  People tend to make NYE plans pretty early & the holiday planning in general will be happening soon.

Did you send STDs?  If your guests already know that you are doing a NYE wedding and are planning for it, there is no reason to send them super early.

I would send them as soon as possble. (Early October?) Flight tix will be expensive that week, so I would give people extra time. If you sent STD’s that’s great, but I would still send the invites earlier than usual just to be courteous since it’s a holiday week.

I am getting married a day after you and I am planning on sending them out by the end of Oct. I sent Save-The-Date Cards and I am trying to stay within sending them out 8 to 6 weeks. I don’t want to send them out too early because people will put them aside and forget about them.

If you already did save the dates for everyone you want to invite then you really don’t have to send the official invites until 2-3 months before the wedding, but if there are many people who didn’t get a save the date card then I would send out the invites ASAP. People make NYE plans super early.

I am also getting married on NYE.  I researched it alot and mine are going ouot next week.  They need to be sent out early for two reasons: 1. It’s a holiday and 2. for out of town guest.  We also have people coming over from  Ireland so we put them out little earlier then the rest…

My date is also NYE.

I am mailing them Oct. 1 to give people ample notice since it is a holiday.

Man..I just figured what an STD is..lol..I really thought it was some crude joke the first couple times I read that lol. I would say to send those out soon, sooner the better since people make plans for the holidays and stuff. Idk.

Send them out at the standard 6-8 weeks before the wedding. Especially since you already have sent save the dates. The fact that it is a holiday makes no difference because they already have the heads up. When you stop to think about it, no one gets invites to regular NYE parties until alot later than that, so there shouldn’t be any issue with the standard 6-8 weeks.

@Selene221: I disagree with this. We’ve had people hounding us about the invites already because they want to know the exact details such as the time of the wedding, other events, more info about the hotel, what the attire is, etc. We’ve referred people to the website, but not everyone looks at it, and I’d like there still be some amount of information for them to acquire by the time they get the invites. The invitations will be a reminder that people need to make their hotel reservation, get airline tickets, finalize their holiday plans… 6-8 weeks might be fine, but I don’t think it is at all a bad idea to send them out a bit earlier when you’re getting married in the holiday season.

we are sending them 8 weeks before. We sent save the dates with information for the website which has all the hotel, venue and weekend feastivities. Sending them any earlier seems like potential for disaster with possible cancellations. I figure, NYE is not a hard date to remember, you don’t need extra reminders, it should be marked on your calendar for the last year.
