      Etiquette says you can send them out as early as a year in advance - and I agree. The point is to give proper notice to your guests so that they can plan/budget/etc accordingly.

      I wish mine went out that early, but we ended up at 9 months out.

      I will say that the wedding didn't feel "official" to us until we sent out our save the dates, so that made it really fun and exciting for us.

        I dont think there is anything wrong with sending them out now. This way people have a lot of time to save up. Then you can send your wedding invites around 4 months in advance. That will remind anyone who may have forgotten!

          I totally agree, just make sure to put "Invitation to Follow" on your save the dates, so people will know you'll be sending an actual invitation closer to time.

            I think its ok as well. Your wedding is 10 months away and they would want to start making plans to come. So yea do it

              We are getting married the day after you!! I sent some out just yesterday and a bigger batch went out about a month ago.
              Go for it now. People get so busy that they will probably be happy to have the info sooner.
              We are talking about sending our invite out before Christmas--have you talked about that part yet?

                I think it is ok to send them out now. We sent ours out a year ahead so that people had a chance to save up money.

                  You can def send them out now. The more time people have to plan the better. Courtney is also getting married in May and she sent hers out. And Amy is getting married July 4, 2008 and she sent her's out as well. I say send them out! I got a SDT two months ago for a wedding in September 28, 2008. And this isn't even a DW! Send it out and start getting excited!

                  I think you SHOULD send them. The whole point is so that people don't plan another vacation and can save money. It's best to know as soon as possible.

                    I have not even thought about the Invites... I mean, have not even looked at ordering these yet! lol
                    I was thinking about sending these in early Jan, right after the Holiday craziness?

                    I sent him all of your responses... Just to show him that
                    I AM RIGHT! lol
