You have your wedding date set and want to send save the date cards. This particular announcement will be your initial view into the world of wedding stationery, so here’s a few tips on what to include.

Do I have to send Save the Dates?
Nope. But they are recommended for a few reasons:

  1. Your friends and family will appreciate the heads-up especially if they have to organise time off work, travel arrangements or sitters for the little ones.
  2. You’re more likely to have first dibs on guests who know other couples getting married on the same day.
  3. They’re a great way to get everyone excited about your wedding – and to get your own creativity flowing early in the planning process

What details should I include on Save the Date cards?
The most important thing to include on your save the date cards is the date (obvious I know), but what else?

  1. The date
  2. Your names
  3. The location
  4. Accommodation and Travel details. If your wedding is a destination wedding or your wedding is held during a busy time in that location (best to check) it’s best to give them accommodation options so that places don’t book out.
