    I’m sending mine next week for my August wedding. I think six months out is fine to send them. Even though it’s gonna be New Years for your wedding, who really has New Years plans six months in advance?

    I am getting married the day before you and already sent mine out and my sister doesn’t even know if she’ll be able to take off because her boss historically takes off every year at that time!!! I say the earlier the better if most of your guests are coming in from out of town (100% of our guests will be traveling between an hour and six hours for our wedding).  I think if your guests are local you are definitely okay with waiting, but your out of towners may need more notice because they may need to take a day off from work and when I worked for other folks, there were a lot of requests off for those days at the beginning of the year.

    My wedding is the weekend of Thanksgiving… and I’m planning on sending mine 7-8 months out.  6 months is usually fine too.  I’m just going to be happy to have less boxes of stuff in my house πŸ™‚

    Hmm…I would say 7-8 months due to the fact that its a holiday weekend (people really do plan well in advance for New Years) and you have a significant amount of Out of Town guests.

    We did six months. My wedding is June 5 and I put them in our Christmas cards. Killed two birds with one stone. But let people know in advance by word of mouth anyway.

    NYE isn’t exactly Christmas so it shouldn’t be that big of a deal family wise.

    I sent mine out 9 months before just because my out of town guests are coming from Europe.  If you think that your guests would need more time to plan (or save $) then send them out early.

    I think youll be fine with 6-8 months out. We sent ours last month for our end of August wedding because 99% of our guests are Out of Town. I really dont know anyone that plans THAT far in advance for New Years Eve although I know that some people will take advantage of the 2 in a row long weekends and go on vacation that time of year.

    I would send mine out within the next month or so, especially because its a holiday.  My wedding was June 20th and we sent them out about 9 months before the wedding because it was during the summer and we wanted to let people know who usually make summer vacation plans.

    My wedding is the day after yours and I plan on sending them out in March or April. Most people already know our date, but I want to officially let them know our date with our website info.

    6 months is fine. Most people don’t make their NYE plans or even send out invites until December. Alot of people end up making literally last-minute plans.
