Do you need them? Save the Date cards are designed to announce your wedding date and location, so your guests can reserve that day and start making travel plans if necessary. These are great to send out if your wedding is more than 9 months out or if you are having a destination wedding. If it’s less than 6 months out, you really don’t need to send them because your invitations will go out 2 months before the wedding.
Before you send them, you need to have some important decisions made. First, you need to have your venue secured and the date you will be getting married. Second, you need to have your guest list finalized. Whoever receives a save the date needs to receive an invitation.
What information needs to go on them? All you need are your names, city, and the wedding date. These are a great way to share your engagement pictures or introduce your wedding theme and colors to your guests.
Save the Dates are a fun way to share your good news and excitement with friends and family, but if you’re on a tight budget, you can skip them.
