When to send out Save the Dates:

Save the dates are typically sent out 6-12 months before your wedding date to give guests plenty of time to make travel arrangements and plan accordingly. 

What to include:

  • Your names: Be sure to include both your full names.
  • Wedding date: Make sure to include the date of your wedding.
  • Wedding location: Provide the city and state where your wedding will be held.
  • Formal invitation to follow: Let guests know that a formal invitation will be sent at a later date.
