We are discussing when to send out our save the dates and I am coming accross conflicting inforamtion. Some sources say to send them out a year (or more - basically once you get engaged) and other say near the 9 month mark. My concern is that our wedding, which is August 17th, 2013, is during the peak of wedding season and a lot of women I know are getting engaged. Our venue has been booked for a few months and I just want to make sure our friends and family can be there to share in our day. Is it okay to send out save the dates sooner rather then later?!
