When do I send my save the dates?

Save the dates should be sent 6-8 months before the wedding date. Send your save the dates even earlier for destination weddings and holiday weddings (we recommend 9-12 months before). You want to give your wedding guests plenty of time to budget and plan.

The best part about sending save the dates is that you don’t need to have a lot of details set to do so. Your names and wedding date are really the only required details you need. Including the city and state is recommended but not required. The hardest thing you’ll have to do before sending save the dates is choose who will receive them.

When to Send Save the Dates

P.S. – Many couples are choosing to send photo save the dates. Remember to schedule an engagement photo shoot with plenty of time to get your photos back before ordering save the dates.
