If you are wondering if and when you need to send Save the Date cards for your upcoming wedding, we are here to help!
Historically, engaged couples announced their upcoming nuptials in the newspaper or in their local church bulletin. Today, Save the Date cards have replaced the official printed engagement announcement. They are most often sent to your guests as a courtesy, and are not a requirement. If your wedding is taking place during a traditionally busy time of year (holidays, graduation, etc.) or if many of your guests will need to make prior travel arrangements to attend, then a Save the Date card is highly recommended.
Mail your Save the Date cards 7 to 11 months prior to your wedding, so guests can plan ahead. Be certain that you only send the cards to guests on your confirmed “A” list! Remember that “B” list guests are excluded from Save the Date card mailings.
The information on your Save the Date cards should include: wedding website information, hotel recommendations, and the city the ceremony will take place.
At Kathryn’s Bridal, we have an extensive collection of Save the Dates and can even customize your cards to compliment the tone your wedding invitation. The options for creativity are endless!
Save time and money by working with a local wedding professional stationer rather than taking your chances buying online!
