How long after booking a wedding do you invite people?

My partner and I are getting married in 3 months and we booked our wedding today. My mum says not to invite people yet despite us knowing who we want there (it's a small wedding with possibly no reception) and it's midweek so we can't leave it for weeks to tell people as they may need to book time off.... show more My partner and I are getting married in 3 months and we booked our wedding today.

We're really excited and I want to let people know now but I keep being told not to. When is it good to invite guests? (we aren't sending physical invites)
