All About Save the Dates

All About Save the Dates

You’re engaged to be married and have set a date for your wedding. Send a “Save the Date” to formally announce the date and begin the information sharing process with your guests.

Save the Dates should be sent anywhere from 6-8 months before your wedding and even up to a year before if it’s a destination wedding or if most of your guests will be traveling from another state/country. They should give your guests a glimpse into the style and formality of your wedding and should contain the following information:

The couple’s full names
Date of the wedding
City and State (location) of the wedding
The phrase “formal invitation to follow”
URL of your Wedding Website (optional)

You can have some fun with this card by sharing an engagement photo, mimicking a vintage postcard of the event’s city, or choosing a classic card to convey the important information for your event. Hire a wedding stationer to create coordinating Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations. .
