Today we discuss save the dates and when a good time to send them would be! You have the ring and you are now ready to start your wedding plans! You want to give your guests a heads up about your big day! Naturally the first would be for you to send save the dates (Get  50% Off Address Labels and Gift Tags – use code 0225DEAL – This is an affiliate link).  What is a save the date? A save the date is a pre-invitation which officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.

We recommend sending the save the dates especially if you are having a destination wedding or a wedding that will last 2 or more days. If your wedding is on a holiday weekend or during busy times, let your guests know. It’s a good way of letting your guests prepare everything ahead of schedule in order to make the necessary arrangements. We suggest sending the save the dates at least 6 to 8 months prior to the wedding.

You should the send save the dates to those that you definitely want to attend the wedding- including your bridal party! Because you are not aware of all the specifics of your wedding date yet, include the following- your names, your wedding dates or dates for weekends or destinations, the location and the venue if booked. If you have a wedding website, add it as well. Great wedding site is Appy Couple!  Ideally your wedding invitations should match the look of your invitation to keep it all branded. The invitation will set the tone for your wedding (casual or formal)

If you happen to change the dates or the location of your wedding, update your website and definitely start informing your guests. Ideally you would send these information once you have some of the details confirmed.
