    depends where you are getting married, if its local and on a weekend, i would wait til at least 6 months before. you coudl send save the dates about a year or so beforehand?

    of its a weekday wedding or somewhere far afield though, you will want to give plenty of notice, but not too much notice that people will forget as its over a year yet, id well forget to put a wedding for the end of next year on my calendar

    Our wedding isn't until Aug 2015 so all we have done so far is sent save a dates to people who are invited for during the whole day which is just to tell them to mark it down on their calendars. The actual invites are going to be sent out 6 months prior in Feb since a lot of people will be travelling and will need to make arrangements.

    We sent ours out 4 months before (and we have a weekday wedding). We sent save the dates out 6 months before. When I have received wedding invites from other people a long time in advance, I usually lose them, or forget about them

    I think it's too early. They'll probably get lost or damaged by the time its even this October. At least 6 months before is normal, maybe 4 months for evening guests

    I would say January 2015 at the earliest, and even then you could leave it later. We did January invites for an August wedding, and we hadn't done save the dates, we'd only told close family and the wedding party the date. You could do save the dates now or after Christmas, and follow up with invites in March or April. I would set an early deadline though, maybe end of July, so that you get responses from people before they disappear for holidays. If you get replies in September it's getting a bit close.

    I am getting married October 2015 and I am only planning on sending the save the dates in October this year so they have plenty of time to sort anything out if needed. I am not going to be sending my wedding invitations until 6 months before the wedding itself.
