Hi bees, just wanted to get your opinions on when we should be sending out save the dates. About half of our guests live about a 2 hour drive away. Is 3 months before the wedding good enough? And if so, at which point are invites sent out?

I think save the dates would be good 4-6 months in advance (or a bit sooner/later depending on if there are any holiday/weather considerations) and invites about 2-3 months out (also depending on what your RSVP deadline is and then adding a week buffer for the late folks. I’m doing super early save the dates, but that’s a weather/long distance travel/long engagement thing 🙂

Good point. I was thinking about sending out invites a month before and save the dates 3 months before, but I didn’t think about the RSVPs. With that in mind, I think invites would be ideal if sent out about 2 months in advance and STDs about 4 months prior to the wedding.
Guess that means we need to start finalizing our guest list if we’ll be sending out STDs by last of January.
Now the stress is really starting to kick in!
