Is it ever too early to send out save the dates?
I don’t think so, we have just sent ours out and we get married March 2019. Xxx
Depending on your wedding date you don't want to send them out way too early (like 3 years ) but we will be sending out ours next year for our 2020 wedding. This is because we have guests travelling from around the world and want to give as much notice as possible.
We sent ours out Oct 2014 and got married Aug 2015.It was the summer holidays so wanted to give people enough time as everyone plans holidays etc xx
We’re sending ours out in Feb/March and our wedding is June 2019 xx
We sent our early because we were excited and we have family all over the UK and some in America
I am sending mine out now for December 2018 xx
I think 12 months in advance is fine unless having a wedding over seas. X
Received my very first save the date exactly a year before the wedding..have to say was underwhelmed ..waste of time & money..know you are all super excited ...if you feel the need 1 year is early enough x
We have 18mo this for ours and an just over a year for invites as getting married abroad and wanted to give ppl as much notice as possible. Allowing them to book and pay bits off each month
I sent mine as soon as date Was booked. About 16 months in advance haha.
I sent mine out just as and when I saw people the easiest was about 10 months some people just got an invite if they lived far away or I hadn't see them. X
18-12 months is the recommended timeline
12 months notice is ample for everyone
We sent ours out about 16 months before we're due to get married. This is due to it being on a Thursday and some of our friends and family need to book their holidays a year in advance with their place of work. So this gives them plenty of time to do so. My mum made them so the cost was hardly anything. Everyone who we've invited as far as I know are coming... Its a Christmas wedding 2018 so plenty of time was needed.x

I have sent mine out 2 years before our wedding, i am a huge planner so i need to know things are perfect and i have already got people saying they are coming!!
Ive spoken with wedding planners and have friends who work in events, they said that the general rule of thumb is between 9-12 months before the date and invites 2-4 months. I know some who received them well before and were pretty confused and felt it lost a bit of purpose as it was just too far in advance. Good luck !
I'm doing mine 2 years before as our wedding is on a Thursday and people will need to book the day off xx
We're getting married April 2020, so sending out Save the Dates April 2018 and invites April 2019. :)
I don't think so. I have sent mine and our wedding is booked for April 2019.
