Yes October sounds good! I sent my STD 9 months before the wedding 🙂

hopefulfuturemrs :  you can send them anytime now! As long as it’s less than a year away, you’re good. More than a year and people are likely to confuse the date. Fewer than 6 months, though, and it seems kinda pointless.

hopefulfuturemrs :  I have the same wedding date and I send my STDs on June 26 and most people received them on June 30th of this year. I didn’t mean to do that, but it worked out nicely. I’m having a destination wedding so I wanted to send them out as soon as possible, but wanted to avoid too early so people didn’t confuse the year.

Our save the dates are going out 7 months before our wedding, due to the fact that it is in the middle of the summer and we want people to be able to schedule their lives.  I think that in your situation between 6 and 9 months before is good

I think 8 months in advance (October) is appropriate.

I think 6-8 is typical for an intown wedding. Destination or holiday weekend, I’d do a little more. I sent mine out 10 months in advanced since it’s a holiday weekend.
