We’re getting married June 27, which to me seems to be a popular date. All the vendors are already booked up for this date, we know other people getting married on this date, etc. That being said, how early should we send out our STDs? I feel like they need to go out early because of the date’s popularity? Also, I get that 6 months is typical, but 6 months before our wedding is Christmas. We don’t want our Save-The-Date Cards getting lost in the Christmas card craziness. Does that mean we send them before in late Nov./early Dec. or wait until late Jan?

laurenrenee33: I say send them sooner than later, I agree with the Christmas card issue. I’m doing a magnet because I feel like even if you send it super early, they won’t lose it. People can always use a magnet! lol

- Wedding: June 2015 - Historic house and gardens
Ours is June 7th and we have just printed ours. They will be getting sent out in the next couple of weeks. We have a few out of state guests and people need to book their holidays for next year, so we figured earlier is better than later.

laurenrenee33: I was wondering about this too. We just booked our wedding yesterday for 8th October 2016. I’m thinking of just sending them now so people dont book holidays or anyyhing for then. Plus have 2 couples that will be flying over from Dubai, a friend 300 miles away and a bridesmaid 150 miles away. My partners sister is getting married June 2016 and they sent the STD cards as soon as they booked too. Its a difficult one!!

How about just before Thanksgiving? 7 months isn’t too early and it isn’t too late either.

alexsymm: Are you sure you want to send them now? That is over two years early… LOTS of time for people to lose them. Even with out of state/country guests… I’d wait until October 2015, at least. But thats just me.
laurenrenee33: I’d send them in late November to aviod Christmas rush. Im getting married 12-13-14 and sent mine out in July (we didn’t even get engaged until June)

Okay, couple of questions. How long does it take to get the Save-The-Date Cards once you’ve ordered them? Our wedding is 5.2.2015 and we haven’t ordered yet. Same goes for invitations. I’m assuming I don’t have to order those now and have some time, right? Feeling like I’m losing my mind with all of these details.

I send them out as soon as I picked a date and put a deposit on our venue. I wanted to make sure people take time off if need be. The invites can go out later though. I won’t be sending those until March 2015.
