According to Martha Stewart weddings and Emily Post, invitations should be sent out six to eight weeks prior to the event to ensure adequate time for out of town guests to respond. For a local wedding, eight weeks is the earliest recommendation. This allows time for travellers to make appropriate arrangements for their stay.
According to wedding etiquette experts on PoptheQuestions.com, if a couple is having a destination wedding that has limited hotel accommodations, wedding invitations may be sent up to three months in advance. This gives guests adequate time to book hotel rooms prior to the event especially if the hotel books rooms months in advance.
Ideally, invitations should be sent out six weeks before the wedding. However, if you are set on sending out invitations at your earliest convenience, be aware that if you send them out too soon, guests may misplace the invitation or forget the date if the event is projected too far in advance.
