    How early do you need to send out STDs? I am not getting married for another 2 years, but my mom said that I should send STDs now, but I feel that its too early and people may forget about it or ignore them this early.

      Congrats! Well its really up to you. Its a matter of preference really. I sent out my STDs as soon as I had my date booked. We are getting married May 3 2012 & I sent out my STDs in April. I wanted to give my guests as much time as possible to save. Dont forget you will be sending out invitations later so I didnt think it mattered that it was over a year away for me.

        Congrats! I think that it is up to you I sent mine out 10 months in advance and then I am going to send out the invitations 4 months before as a reminider for everyone to make sure they book it. I would think a little over a year out would be a good amount of time that way it is not too far in advance where they would forget, but then they still have time to plan their vacation around it.

          I sent mine out in April and we are getting married in June 2012. I figured that is more than a year which is plenty of time for people to save up money for the trip. I would say 12-18 months. Congrats!

            I sent my STDs out exactly 1 year before out wedding. I wanted to give everyone enough time to save money and watch for tickets.

                I'm hoping to send them out in September which will be a year in advance.

                  I should add that I did send out an initial email about 18months in advance informing people that we were planning a destination wedding and that they could pre-book to get the 2010 rates if they wanted to.

                    We sent ours out 10 months in advance. Our formal invites are going out in a couple of weeks with an October deadline for putting down deposts.
