The question has been asked and the answer was “yes”! Now it is time to spread the great news about your upcoming wedding date. Once you have determined where your wedding ceremony and reception will take place, you can send your Save the Date.
Who gets a Save The Date?
Save The Date’s can be sent to all guests or it can be sent to only those guests who are traveling from a farther distance and they have to make plans (i.e. travel, accommodations, etc.) Be sure to create your guest list so you can know how many you will need to order.
What should you include on a Save the Date?
Save the Dates should include the couples’ names, wedding date, city and state of wedding. If you plan to have a wedding website you can list that as well so your guests have a reference to know about your upcoming wedding events.
What should it look like?
Save the Dates can be a postcard or magnet. If could be as small as a business card size or it could be a booklet of information. The most popular form is a magnet with the couples’ picture on it. Magnets are easy for your guests to remember your wedding as they will more than likely place it on their refrigerator.
When should I mail it?
Save the Dates can be sent as soon as you secure your wedding date and location. DO NOT send Save the Dates no less than 6 months from your wedding. At that point, you should be working on your invitations.
No matter the style, let your save the date depict the casual/fun side of both the bride and groom.
