Dear Caroline,

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! Sending out your wedding invitations is an exciting part of any couple’s wedding planning.

As a rule of thumb, you should send your invitations between six and eight weeks before your wedding. For your November wedding, this would mean waiting until September to send out your wedding invitations. This gives your guests the perfect amount of time to make their plans while also being near enough to the date to know if they will be available.

While it might be difficult to contain your excitement, take advantage of the time you have between now and then. You can send out a save the date card, which can serve to announce your engagement and let guests know they should expect an invitation in the coming months.
