Hi All My wedding is in 8 weeks (18 Oct) should I send them this week, or wait till 6 weeks before? What did anyone else do? O-O

Lots on the Oct brides thread have sent them already. I think it's whatever you like yourself, personally i think 6-8wks is good timing but some people have good reason to send them earlier than that. HTH :wv

Yeah i think 6 - 8 weeks is the norm unless its a festive time, holiday time of year or the wedding is a distance away from where they all live so the need to book accomadation etc comes into it then.

I'd send them this week if your ready, give people the extra bit of time to get off work etc. You must be excited, your on the countdown now :wv

Hi, I'm 10th October and I sent mine today so you could definitely send yours end of this week start of next week.. It's a hugh relief getting them all done. Best of luck with all the writing. :wv

You may aswell send them this week there is no harm in sending them a bit early. You wont feel it now till the big day O-O
