    I need some advice please. We have just booked our wedding for 29th July 2015. When would I need to send out save the dates and invitations? As it is a time when alot of ppl go on holiday would I need to do this fairly soon?

    Thanks

    We sent our save the dates about 11 months in advance, as we're also marrying in the school holidays (2nd August) so wanted to give people plenty of notice.

    Our first wave of invitations went out mid-March, with an RSVP date of May 1st. Once we have all our RSVPs back a second wave will go out with a date of 15th June if we have any declines; we're tight for space and so couldn't invite everyone we wanted to in the first wave.

    I'd suggest sending save the dates out maybe 10-12 months beforehand, but leave the invitations until 4-6 months before.

    Mine is 28th july, and have already sent my std's, due to the fact the date is on weekday and the first week of the holidays and the holidays for next summer are due to be released for next summer at end of this month. would get them out sooner rather than later.

    save the dates about a year in advance and invites can depend - how far in advance does the venue need to know numbers? you dont want to have the RSVP date too close to that as it'll cause you loads of stress and hassle have to chase the no repliers x

    I am getting married in August 2015 and I am sending out my save the dates very soon as both families and friends will need to travel and find somewhere to stay so I'm trying to give them plenty of time to sort things out. My invites though will be out 8-10 weeks before x
