Save the Date Announcements Make a big impression with a personalized save the date announcement that complements the theme of your upcoming nuptials.

What to include?

  • Name of couple
  • The date (of course)
  • Location of wedding (if it is a destination wedding)
  • A reminder at the end letting your guest know that they can expect a formal invitation later

Who to send to?

  • Save the dates should go out to friends and family that you plan to invite to the wedding.

When to send?

  • Mail save the dates at least 6 months in advanced (prior to your weddings date). If you are planning a destination wedding, you will want to send them out earlier (at least a year) to give friends and family time to plan out their expenses.

Tip: if you haven’t decided on colors for the wedding yet, don’t worry about matching your save the dates to the future invitations. This is a great time to experiement and have fun with colors, since the save the dates are less formal.
