paper post: save the dates


Save the dates: when to send and what to include? As with wedding invitations, the guidelines are a bit different for holiday/destination weddings, but the basics are the same!

When to send: the general guideline is around 5 months before your wedding date. But if you’re having a destination or holiday wedding, plan to give your guests at least 9-12 months notice.

What to include:

– Couple’s names (of course!)
– Date of the wedding
– Location where the wedding will be held, ie “Annapolis, Maryland”
– Note that a formal invitation is to follow
– The address of your wedding website
– If it’s a destination wedding (or you have a lot of out of town guests!), hotel(s) should be listed as well travel information
