When to send out Save the Dates and Invitations?
As a general rule, Save the dates should be sent out 6-8 months before the wedding. If you are having a destination wedding, its recommended that they are sent out 8-10 months before. This will give your guests plenty of time to prepare, make their travel arrangements, and get the proper time they need to off of work.
For invitations, if you have sent out Save the Dates, you may send the invitations 2 months prior. For those who have not sent out Save the Dates, you will need to give your guests advance notice, so it is recommended about 3-4 months before the wedding.
