    Hi I'm at getting married 1/6/18 and need some advise. A quarter of our guests being invited live abroad so wondered when I should send save the dates, the day invites and night invites. We need numbers for hotel for accommodation by end January.

    End of Jan seems very early for final numbers. If so I wouldn't bother with STDs and just send invites September/ October time with rsvp end Dec xx

    I'd be tempted to send your STDs now to give your overseas guests plenty of notice. Agree with Emily about timing of invitations.

    i would send your STDs with a years notice.

    Definitly agree Jan is extremely early for final numbers, i would double check that with the venue as most are 4-8 weeks before x

    Definitely send STDs now but as others have said I'd check with the venue about timings for final numbers. Most venues it's 6-8 weeks before the big day.
