call me crazy but i sent my save the dates out last month! Being that we’re getting married 10/10/15 and it’s a holiday weekend we wanted people to be super prepared not to make any vacation plans for that weekend! One family member was happy we let them know so early andother one was pissed off we’re having our wedding on their vacation weekend. My fiance and i designed our own save the dates brought them to staples copy and print shop and they made 100 of them up for us for only $108! We got exactly what we wanted for the price we wanted. We added the heart gem on the 10th by hand! I’m super proud of these!!

MedleyHoward2015:  I just mailed our save the dates yesterday for our 10/10/2015 wedding. About 40% of our guest list lives out of state.  I think 6 months before the wedding date is plenty unless you’re having a Destination Wedding.

I mailed mine 2 weeks ago!! 🙂 and invitations will be going out in July. It never hurts to send them a bit early, it just gives guests more time to plan their time/vacation (if necessary) and plan finances 🙂

Hi fellow October brides!

 I will be sending out my save the dates this weekend hopefully. SO, just past the 6 month mark. My real question is do I put the hotel we blocked rooms at on the STD or is that more for the formal invite? I just feel for our out of town guests it will give them time to plan on their stay. Thanks ladies!!

FutureMRS_H:  Nah don’t put the room block on the save the dates. Put it on your website and include the link to your wedding website on the invites
