did you send out save the date? if so, 8 wks should be fine. Also if there are a lot of out of town guests, it’s a good idea to have hotel info on your website so people aren’t waiting until the invites to book their hotel.

Typically I’ve heard 2-3 months before the wedding. I did 3 months because I have alot of out of town guests that will need to secure flights and stuff 🙂

The rule is 6-8 weeks before the wedding. You’re well within that timeframe.

6-8 weeks is the standard. If you sent StDs, people will have plenty of notice.

If you sent Save-The-Date Cards, I think you’re fine.  We sent ours out yesterday – 3 months to the day – because we have Out of Town guests; our room block needs to be booked within the next 45 days; and, since we’re having an UBER small wedding (40 people), we have a “B” list that I want to be able to invite if possible.

@GamersBride:  Hey fellow July bride. My bridal book says 6-8. I am sending mine out this weekend which would 11 weeks but thats because I am getting married on a Friday and we didnt exactly do STD. We did engagement announcements before we set a hard date. I also have a wedding website that I have been informally sending out the link to those coming from a long distance. 

 

 

 

Dont stress the invitations. Those who love you  already know you are getting married and will make sure they are their to celebrate your special day!

 

 

 

Good Luck!
