The Save The Date Invitation

Save the date cards let your guests know the date and location of your wedding so they can plan ahead to keep the date free. Save the date cards are not an essential; however, they are a great way to allow your guests plenty of time to make their arrangements. For guests who will be travelling to your wedding from abroad, a Save The Date invitation is a thoughtful gesture.

  1. Save the Date cards are not the same as wedding announcement cards
  2. You send a Save the Date to anyone who will also be receiving a wedding invitation.
  3. It is a good idea to include the wedding location, along with the date so that guests can make travel plans.
  4. Save the date cards are less formal, therefore it is acceptable to write the numeric date of your wedding.
  5. Add “Invitation to Follow” at the bottom of your save the date invitation so it isn’t mistaken for a wedding invitation.

Save the Date cards are sent about five-eight months prior to the wedding. Have a look at our selection of Save The Date invitations here.
