Save-the-dates are a great way to announce your wedding day and generate excitement among your guests.


This pre-invitation mailing officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.

Of course, you don’t have to send one if you don’t want, but it will give guests the heads up about your wedding plans. Between travel arrangements and busy schedules, sending a save-the-date will increase guests’ chances of attending your wedding celebration. And that’s the aim, planning ahead like this helps to avoid disappointment for you and your guests.

If you are marrying during high-travel times like a holiday weekend or summer in a beach town, or are planning a destination wedding or are having a weekend event they are a useful aid.


They can be sent any time from around 12 months ahead of the wedding. This gives your guests plenty of time to book their travel, save a bit of cash, and ask for days off from work.

Save the Dates can be simple: just your names, date, and event.

All other information can be included with the invitation, at this stage you may not have the details confirmed.
