    We sent our invitations on May 16th. Our wedding was July 16th.  We had a lot of OOTers and one international couple. 6-8 weeks is correct for normal situations.

    And as PPs said, your invitations can be whatever color, style, etc. you want. There are a million options out there.

    6-8 weeks before the wedding.  If you have international guests, you can send those ones out at about 12 weeks.

    They should go out no more than 8 weeks before the wedding, so April would be too early and February would be insane. In fact, if you wanted to, there is still more than enough time to send save the dates. My wedding is in Sept. and we're not sending our STDs until March.

    Stick to 6-8 weeks before. If you send them earlier than that, people won't know if they're available on the date, they'll have too much time to lose the RSVP card, and a lot can happen in terms of budget and circumstances. STDs are unnecessary, just make sure your must haves know the date by word of mouth.

    I got married July 23 and sent out the bulk of my invitations May 23. 

    I did send a group out the last week of April b/c I'm dumb and addressed a few friends still in college to their college address, if I'd waited they would have all already moved for the summer and I didn't want to re-do all their envelopes (re-address as well as line new envelopes).

    And they can absolutely be whatever color you want.

    We mailed our STDs in December for our July wedding. You could send your STDs anytime between now and probably February.

    For a late July wedding, I would not send your invitations before late May. Anything more than 2 months gets excessive. First week of May would be too early.

    Also, there's no point to STDs if you send them a month before your invitations. That's why they are typically sent 6-9 months before the wedding.

    Hey, if you need more help or ideas from other July brides- check out the month boards, I'm assuming you're getting married in 2012? There is a July 2012 board on here. Sometimes asking previous brides is helpful- you can ask July 2011 brides too!
