Save the Date Etiquette
Save the dates should generally be sent six months before the wedding, or earlier if you’ve having a destination wedding. Your save the dates don’t need to match your invitations, and can be great place to have fun.
The save the date should include your names, the wedding date, and the location (you don’t need to know the ceremony time to send your save the date). Use your full names if you’re having a formal or large wedding; first names are fine for a more informal celebration where you’re sure every guest will know you by first name.
In addition to the save the date card, it’s a great idea to send guests a link to your wedding website or blog. If you don’t have one, you can include some basic info about accommodations and transportation: hotels where you’ve reserved room blocks, nearest airports.
If you’re hosting additional wedding events, feel free to ask guests to save the multiple dates, for example June 22 – 24, to let them know that they should make a weekend of it!
