So our wedding is approximately ten months away and we want to send out save the dates. How long in advance would you ladies recommend that we mail them out? Any advice or suggestions would be great...thanks ladies

Between 6-8 months is a good rule of thumb. We sent ours out at 8 because I was too excited and I just couldn't wait any longer to do it! :)

We sent ours 9 months prior because people kept asking us about the date anyways! It's better so people can plan ahead of time. But it's really up to you! 6-9 months is fine

My wedding will be next August, and we're planning to send out Save The Dates early December, with Christmas cards :)

I would say send them out as early as possible. In Germany it is not common to send out STD but we told our guest right after we know the wedding date. It was I think 8 month before the wedding.

We sent outs out 6 months before. I would send them out around 6-8 months, but if you're having a destination wedding I would send them out asap.

We sent them out around 8 months before hand.  We made magnets which went down a treat.

Thanks for the replys, so it seems like six to eight months is a good amount of time. That gives me enough time to lose a few pounds, find a photographer, and do our engament session. Thanks Ladies!!
