Introduction to save the date cards

Save The Date cards are often used for destination weddings. These cards are designed to help your guests plan their travel itineraries. They are not necessary, but are a welcomed convenience for your guests, and help you to achieve a better turnout. You may wish to send save the date cards if many of your guests will be traveling to your wedding, your wedding will be taking place on or around a holiday, you are having a destination wedding, or if your wedding will take place in a seasonally busy or tourist locale, requiring guests to book flights or hotels early.

When To Mail

When deciding to mail your Save The Dates, take the circumstances surrounding your event into consideration, as there are no hard-fast rules for this.

4-6 months prior is when most Save The Date cards are mailed, though a destination wedding may require they be sent out 9-12 months in advance.

What To Include

Typically Save The Date cards do not contain more information than a wedding date, your names, and location.

However, you may also wish to include travel information if you are planning a destination wedding where travel arrangements will be required.
