Save the Date Cards | 101 & Wording
Ordering Save the Date Cards
Save the date cards are a fun way to announce your wedding to your guest list. They increase guests’ chances of attending your celebration. If you are having a destination wedding during peak season travel times, like a three-day weekend or summer in a resort town, then sending a save the date card is essential.
When do we send them?
In general, mail the save the date cards five to six months before the wedding. For a destination wedding which may require extensive travel arrangements, mail save the dates eight months to 1 year in advance.
What information do we include?
Provide any details that will help guests plan for your big day: the wedding date, location, your wedding website URL (where they can find additional information).
Who receives one?
Only those who you are planning on inviting to the wedding. Even if you have received verbal confirmation from certain guests, you should plan to send them a save the date as well (bridesmaids, siblings, parents, etc). However, once the save the date cards are in the mail, there is no turning back, make sure to create an accurate guest list first before mailing them because you should only send them to those you definitely want to invite.
