Save the Date Q&A
Is it okay to send save the dates by e-mail?
These days, it's fine to send an e-mail save the date, especially if you're having a small or informal wedding. Your e-mail save the date can link to a wedding website, giving guests a preview of wedding events and convenient access to transportation and accommodations info.
That said, a printed save the date card is a handy, tactile reminder for guests and a great way to build excitement for your big day. It ensures that your wedding won't get lost in a flood of e-mail, and signals that your event will be special.
Not sure which to do? Many people choose to do both -- a printed save the date, followed by an e-mail reminder with a link to a wedding website where guests can find additional info. This also buys you some time to get your website set up, while getting on guests' calendars early.
To make the most of sending a paper save the date, have fun with it and don't be afraid to do something creative! For example, if you're having a destination wedding, check out our popular vintage postcard-style destination save the dates by Lab Partners - they can be a fun way to get people excited about visiting your destination.
