Save the Dates for Weddings

When do I Send Save the Dates for my Wedding?

Since Save the Date cards are used as a preliminary invitation to your wedding, they should be sent at least 4 months before the wedding, which is about 2 months before your wedding invitations will be in the mail. Save the Dates are not necessary, but are especially important if many of your friends and family will have to travel to your wedding location or if your wedding date falls on or around any holidays. You may want to consider sending them out even earlier, especially if your wedding is taking place at a popular destination or vacation spot.

Save the Dates allow your guests to have plenty of time to request work off, arrange hotel and/or airfare, arrange for babysitters etc. so that your wedding will be a celebrated event and possible vacation that they will share with you. Your guests will appreciate the advance notice of a Save the Date and will have the memories to keep for a lifetime.

Save the Date Magnets have become a popular and modern alternative to traditional Save the Date cards. Below are a few popular save the date magnet designs:
