A save-the-date announcement is a great way to inform your guests of the date and location of your wedding, so that they can plan accordingly. It is especially nice if you are planning a destination wedding, or if a lot of your guests will be coming from out of town. There are a few rules of save the date etiquette to follow:
- Send save-the-dates to everyone on your list, even if you already know whether or not they are attending.
- Address the announcement only to those who are invited to the wedding. This will eliminate confusion about whether a boyfriend or girlfriend is invited, or whether they can bring the kids.
- We recommend mailing save-the-date announcements as much as six months before the wedding. This will give your guests ample time to make travel plans.
