I think you can send them out as soon as you’re ready. Especially if you’re sending them overseas. I think the “normal” timeline is 6-8 months out.

I just sent our save the dates; it’s about 7 months away. However, about 50 percent of our guests are out of town. I think if most of your guests are in town, you can do 5 months or less.

i’m planning on sending them 7-8 months out, although it turns out that someone i went to college with who i have a lot of mutual firneds with already sent out save the dates for their wedding on the same day as ours (a year in advnace), so i guess if you have some competition for the date, send it earlier. we needed to trim our guest list anyways so i guess that’s the silver lining for me….

I got married in june and sent my Save-The-Date Cards out in October 🙂 anywhere from 6-8 months seems to be the norm

How about in January once the holidays are over, so your card doesn’t get lost in the shuffle?
