I’m sending mine 8 months out.  But a large reason for this is: a) it’s basically a destination wedding for alot of people b) it’s a larger city (Atlanta) and c) it’s labor day weekend.  There’s some give and take in the time you can send out depending on your situation, and there’s really no set in stone timeframe for sending these out since they are a newer trend.

I sent mine out 7 months in advance, but my whole engagement will only be 9 months. Our wedding is in July and I had no qualms about sending them a little early since the summer is a busy time for everyone and some people are traveling from out of town.

We sent ours 8 months in advance because it is a destination wedding.

As ashlop said, 6- 8 months is the norm, more on the 8 month side if you’re having a destination wedding, lots of Out of Town guests or over a holiday (like New Year’s!)

It took so long to design ours that we sent it out finally closer to 5 months beforehand, but by then we have spread hotel and flight information to our Out of Town guests by word of mouth already.
