Do you have a wedding coming up this fall or winter? Congratulations! We know how exciting this time can be. Did you know Save the Dates should go out 4-6 months before your wedding, or 6-8 months for a destination wedding? Here’s are some tips for after you’ve set the date and location…
Hire a photographer to get your engagement photos taken
Mail your Save the Dates
As we mentioned Save the Dates should be sent 4-6 months before the wedding. If you’re having a destination wedding, save the dates should be sent 6-8 months in advance. Add in a few weeks if your wedding falls on or near a holiday.
If most of your guests will be traveling no matter where you’re getting married, it’s good etiquette to include further information or a reference to your wedding website so guests can begin making plans as far out as they like.
Keep in mind many of your guests will need to request time off, possibly arrange childcare, and save money, so try to get as much information out as early as you can.
Formal invitations should follow the Save the Dates roughly 8 weeks before your big day. So much to plan and coordinate! We hope these tips will help you out. We’re here for you when you’re ready to design something unique for your special day.
