Save the Date 101: When to Send the Cards

Your Save the Date cards may seem the least complicated thing on your list, but keep in mind that they’re not all about the design.

In fact, there’s plenty of etiquette surrounding them – and it’s probably best to be aware of the best practices if you want to make sure you don’t offend anyone before or during the Big Day.

What are the absolute essentials to know about sending the Save the Dates? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • No, these cards are not compulsory. They are optional. Yet, many couples choose to send these out because it is a good way to politely make your way into your guests’ calendars and make sure they know about your wedding date well ahead of time.
  • If you want to send out these cards, be sure to do it approximately six to eight months before the wedding day. In general, this is enough time for guests to arrange the vacation days, the traveling tickets and the accommodation (in case they live farther away from your wedding location).
  • If you want a destination wedding, you should leave your guests with more time to make all the necessary arrangements (and even more so if you want to have a destination wedding in full season, between March and September). This is valid for holiday weddings too. In both of these cases, sending the Save the Dates about twelve months before the wedding day is a very good idea because it will allow everyone more time to prepare and make the necessary bookings.
