To Save the Date, or to Not Save the Date that is the question! As I was designing these new colorful save the date cards I thought, many times when I speak with a new bride-to-be on the phone they ask this question.
Let me start by saying save the date cards are used to tell your guests to “Save the Date” for your wedding day or weekend. Pretty simple, right!? Personally, I say just send out yourÂ wedding invitations early if you need a response earlier than the norm (1 month before wedding in the USA). Then YOU save money. Sometimes guests need an entire year to plan for travel expenses and vacation/holiday time from work. If you are having a destination wedding you will want to give your guests ample time to plan ahead. When should you send out save the date cards? For 12 years, I’ve been telling our brides/grooms 8-12 months before your wedding day.
Remember, always plan ahead and always do what YOU feel comfortable doing. It’s your wedding day! Enjoy! And have a delightful day! xo
