Before you send those Save the Dates out, there are some etiquette guidelines you'll want to consider:
- Send Save the Dates only to guests you are positive you will be inviting to the wedding. You don't need to send a Save the Date to everyone you are inviting, but everyone who receives a Save the Date should also receive a wedding invitation.
- Your Save the Dates should be mailed 6 to 9 months in advance. If you are planning a destination wedding, it is acceptable to send Save the Dates one year in advance. This will give guests plenty of time to plan for and make travel arrangements.
- Keep in simple but be sure to include all the necessary information such as date, location and accommodations, if available.
- Let your guests know they will be receiving a wedding invitation. Many Save the Dates include the phrase "formal invitation to follow".
- Wait until you have your date and location finalized. If your plans do change, you'll want to pick up the phone and let your guests know about the change.
