How soon is too soon for STD's

Good Morning! My wedding is next August. I originally planned to send out STD's at the beginning of February 2010. However, yesterday my mother suggested that I send them out this December. We have about 30% of our guests coming from at least 2 hours away. Is that too early???

    A year is the EARLIEST I would send them out but 8-6 months ahead of time is a good idea.  I sent mine out with our Christmas cards - it saved on stamps.  :)

    I don't think doing them in December would be a bad thing; you could put them in with your Christmas cards.I did mine about 7 months in advance, and I sent them to everyone.  A lot of people liked the amount of time. They were able to take the time of work, look for flights, talk about where to stay.My only comment from experience would be to make sure you are 100% of inviting these people before you send out a STD; I sent out one to everyone out of excitement, and now there's 2 or 3 people, we would not invite.GL

    We got married in June and we sent them out a year before. All of our guests were OOT and June can fill up fast on people's schedules.

    I agree with pp about the Christmas card thing. But like another pp warned, make absolutely sure you only send them to people you definitely want at the wedding. I ended up sending them to people before I really looked at what I wanted out of my guest list. I wish I would have really thought about it before sending.

    That is a perfect time. We sent them out December 1 as Christmas cards for our May wedding.

    Nah, that is ok.  We are this August and we sent them out with the Christmas cards.  Saved on postage and it was easy to just slip it in the card.One thing about STD's:  Make sure you are going to invite them.  If you are on the fence, don't do it.  There are a few friends that I didn't talk to that much that I sent them to.  By time invites rolled around I didn't talk to them anymore and didn't want to invite but had too.  And of course they all said yes.
