Hi ladies! My wedding is May 13 2017. I was planning on sending my save the dates out soon (atleast by June) but having alot of mixed reactions from friends and family saying it's too early. Literally everything I read on line says the earliest the better.

The wedding will be in Jamaica and I have a wedding website that will be on the save the date. The only thing keeping me from sending them yet is my guest can't book their flights until July for next may.

 

Any thoughts ladies?

I think the sooner you send them out the better. Are you working with a travel agent? If so then I feel like sending them out earlier can give your guests time to plan and save for the trip and can work out payment arrangements if necessary.

@@Kcusack89 I agree with @@tiffanyt, the sooner the better. The further out people know it's a destination wedding, the more time they have to prepare. While we sent ours out about 11 months out (and I wish we could have sent them sooner), FI had told a lot of our friends and family that we were planning on a DW, so they were prepared.

I say, send it out as soon as you have most of the information in place...ie location, date, even travel agent to contact...

 

the sooner the better for a dw.

Hello!

My wedding is April 5, 2017 and I sent my save the dates out in July of 2015. I am sending out my invitations within the next 2 weeks.

Hopefully I didn't send it out too early, but at least people had lots of notice.

The earlier the better. You want the most people to plan to take time off, book flights etc. 

 

You are doing it right. 

 

Go grab a glass of wine and pat yourself on the back ; )

My wedding is June 2017 in Mexico. I mailed invitations with instructions to RSVP and more importantly, book a room. We did a group contract for the rooms and we wanted guest to have ample time to pay for rooms and flights. Around January, we will secure a group rate for flights.
