Hi everyone!
curious as to how far in advance did you mail or hand out your invitations?

    We just sent ours and our wedding is late July. But we are expecting visitors from USA and 5 different countries in Europe, so we wanted to make sure that everyone will receive them fairly early so that they can plan their off work days etc but also not too early so that they would forget or so.

    We handed out most of ours in early February and are just mailing out the last few now for your wedding in late July. We also have an RSVP deadline set about 6 weeks from our date.

    We sent out our invites 4 months before. We mailed most and handed out a few to close family that we knew we were going to see!

    I just ordered out invites from vistaprint. We will be mailing them out in April. Our wedding is in August.

    Personally I need more time to plan so we are going to mail anyone long distance around 8 months before and then anyone in Ontario 6 months before (we are not doing save the dates). I don’t like the idea of having the long distance variable of people are coming but I guess anything could happen!

    We sent our save the dates a few months before via e-mail. We were only engaged for about 9 months before the wedding so we didn't have a lot of time to play with to do everything.

    I would say the 4 month mark and not to mail out near any big holidays or the mail might take forever to get there!

    We're about to send ours by mail next week once it's ask ready and our wedding is Sept. Our rsvp is on My wedding website here so it's easier.

    We didn’t do save the dates so we sent our invites out earlier about 6 months before. They don’t have to rsvp until 3 weeks before the wedding but we’ve had lots already start rsvping
