I’m getting married the same day and I sent my STD weeks ago. If you’re not having a lot of out of town guest then I would wait until you have your pictures but more than half of our guests are out of town so I needed to make sure they had ample time to get flights.

@amw511s:  Mine just went out on Monday and they are a big hit!  Like you said, most people knew our wedding date so it was more of a way to give everyone our wedding website so they can get all the Out of Town information.  I’m sure you’ll be fine!

@LoveMySailor1018:  Well I think it depends on your guests – do you have a lot of Out of Town guests or people you want to be at your wedding that you haven’t already talked to?  If so, then you’ll want to let them know well in advance.  If its just a formality and you know people are coming then you’re probably OK.

I’ve seen on this board that some brides are doing things extra early.  But I think you’d probably want to get them out sooner than later at this point – if only so people have info on hotels and such. 🙂

Good luck!

I sent mine last week! Getting married March, 10 2012! My wedding planner said STD’s should go out about 6-8 months before, and wedding invites 3 months before.

@LoveMySailor1018:  Our date is March 17th too and ours aren’t out yet either.  From what I’ve read Save-The-Date Cards are fine 4-6 months out and invites 2 months out.  I understand what people are saying about Out of Town guests but if you don’t have a ton then I think Save-The-Date Cards are more of a fun formality nowadays especially with all the social netowrking we have.
