We're getting married out of the country. How far in advance should we send our save-the-dates?
Generally speaking, if you are getting married out of the country, or if you're planning a wedding around a major holiday, you should send your save-the-dates about a year in advance. This allows your guests the time make travel arrangements. If this is the case, we suggest you contact your hotel to make sure they take reservations a year in advance.
If you're having a wedding that will not require major travel by your guests, four to six months is standard.
