Save-the-Date Etiquette 

Photo by Bridal Musings

No matter how you say it, show it, or display it, save-the-dates are a fun way to get guests excited for your wedding.

When should I send out my save-the-dates?

Try to send them out at least 4 to 6 months in advance. Even obvious guests (such as the wedding party) should get save-the-dates. This way, your guests can plan their schedules accordingly and book travel arrangments. The formal invitations, however, can be sent out as early as six to eight weeks before the wedding date.

What information should be included?

The Knot has a great Q & A about save-the-date etiquette. Besides including your wedding date, try to include information that would be helpful for your guest to plan in advance. Things such as your wedding website, hotel and travel information are helpful.

Is there a specific format I have to use?

There isn't! Make the save-the-dates as personal as you want. They should show of your style, personality, and your own brand of flair. For more save-the-date etiquette, Modern Manners has more specifics on the timing and the wording of save-the-dates.
