Are you wondering if you really need to send Save the Date cards for your upcoming wedding?
Traditionally, engaged couples formally announced their upcoming nuptials in the newspaper or in their local church bulletin. Today, Save the Date cards have often replaced the official printed engagement announcement and are usually sent to your guests as a courtesy. However, if your wedding is taking place during a typically 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 most highly recommended.
Here are some helpful guidelines:
1. Mail your Save the Date cards 7 to 11 months prior to your wedding. Guests like to plan ahead and arrange their schedule to attend. Again, this is very important if you anticipate any out-of-town guests or are having a destination wedding.
2. Only send the cards to guests on your confirmed “A” list! Remember that “B” list guests are excluded from Save the Date card mailings.
3. The information on your Save the Date cards should also include: wedding website information, hotel recommendations, and the city the ceremony will take place.
