Save-the-date: A save-the-date should be used if you need to give your guests ample notice to attend your wedding, especially if you are planning a destination or out-of-town wedding. This allows guests to plan for time off from work and budget for travel expenses. Send 6 to 12 months in advance.

Invitation: The wedding invitation notifies guests of the date, time and place of your wedding. The invitation should convey the tone and formality of the event. Send 3-4 months in advance.
