With your destination wedding planned and all the details set in stone, it’s time to send out your Save-the-Dates! Save-the-Dates are very different from actual wedding invitations, and there are a few basics to keep in mind when planning them:
- Send out your Save-the-Dates 6-8 months before the wedding. This way, your guests have plenty of time to work out their schedules and plan their trip accordingly.
- Even though you are probably excited to share every detail of your wedding with your guests, save-the-Dates need to be kept simple and straightforward. Including the bride and groom’s names, the date of the wedding, and the location is plenty.
- There is no need to include an RSVP date. Most guests won’t know if they can attend yet, since they are sent out so early.
- Save-the-Dates are usually less formal than a wedding invitation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make them classy and elegant. It’s all up to you!
- Save-the-Dates don’t always need to be sent as cards, even though that is most common. Some brides send magnets, photos, or small gifts too!
