When to Send Out Save the Date Cards
Paperia | March 2014
If you’re gettin’ hitched, when should you send the Save-the-Date cards to your guests?
Save-the-Date cards are typically sent about six months before the wedding; however, if you are having a destination wedding or if several guests will need to travel to your wedding location, send your Save-the-Dates as early as possible.
Why do you need Save-the-Date cards for your wedding?
While some people perceive them to be another unnecessary wedding expenditure, there are actually many benefits to doing so!
Save-the-Date cards will . . .
Force you to finalize your guest list and compile addresses – this will save you loads of time when you’re ready to tackle the invitations
Prompt you to start thinking seriously about your wedding style, colors, and design
Help to ensure that your family and friends do not schedule any avoidable conflicts on your wedding date – more guests = more fun!
Allow those who need to travel adequate time to request off from work and make necessary arrangements

Build anticipation and excitement – many guests display these cards on their fridge or cork board, where it will serve as a physical reminder of the celebration to come!
