If it’s time to send your Save the Dates, but stuck you’re on exactly how to word them, you’ve come to the right place!

The first step in Save the Date card planning is deciding exactly when to send them. Next, browse designs and figure out if you want a photo or non-photo style. And finally, customize the wording with all the information you need to ensure a great turnout at your wedding.

Q: Do we need to include our last names on our Save the Dates?

A: No, not necessarily. But if there are guests on your list (perhaps business associates of your parents) who may not know exactly who your save the date is for by glancing your first names only, add them. Last names also denote formality, so if you’re wedding leans traditional or formal, be sure to write out your whole name.

Q: Should I list hotel and accommodation information on our Save the Dates?

A: No, it’s not necessary. Typically, information about accommodations is communicated on an information card that is sent with your wedding invitations.

Q: If our wedding has been postponed, should we send new Save the Dates?

A: Yes! You should definitely send a new Save the Date. Our sister-site also has an excellent (and fun!) collection of Change the Date cards.
