What is a “save-the-date?”
“Save-the-date” refers to the announcement of your wedding date. Traditionally, couples send out save-the-date cards prior to sending out their formal wedding invitations. Save-the-date cards let guests know that they should reserve a specific date for your upcoming ceremony and reception, so they can mark their calendars and plan in advance to make any needed travel arrangements.
When should I send out my save-the-date cards?
We recommend mailing your save-the-date cards eight to ten months before your wedding date. However, if you’re hosting a destination wedding you can send out your save-the-date cards even further in advance so guests can plan accordingly.
What do I write on a save-the-date card?
Your save-the-card is basically an announcement about your wedding with the intention of encouraging guests to put your upcoming wedding date on their calendar. Give guests the basic details, like the date of your ceremony and reception, the venue location and your wedding website URL. Some couples also like to include a note that a formal invitation will follow.
