WHEN DO I SEND THEM
Wedding within the country – 6 months ahead
Destination Wedding – 9 months ahead
Give your guests adequate time to organise their travel. Timing is of the essence, if sent any earlier, people will tend to forget about it; any later it might as well be the invitation.

INFORMAL OR FORMAL
These cards are extensions of your wedding and so the designs of the card should go well with the theme. Let you imagination run, use colours to accentuate your personalities and make them a joy to work on!

WHAT SHOULD IT SAY
4 simple things to include

  • names of the bride and groom
  • wedding date
  • wedding location or country and city name if venue is not confirmed yet
  • “Invite to follow” or “Invitation and details to follow” as this is not the actual invite.

CAN I INCLUDE SOMETHING EXTRA
Everyone loves to be different! But enclosing fun, but messy extras like confetti or little trinkets like stars or stickers in your envelope can be a nuisance. This extra effort may be friendly gesture but when you guests are unaware of the little surprises; it’s hard to clean up. So keep it clean and leave the fancy details on your card.

IS EVERY GUEST SUPPOSED TO RECEIVE ONE
You don’t have to send these to everyone as the cards only reach those whom you definitely want to invite or those who have to travel to your wedding. You can choose to send a save-the-date card to everyone if you are sure of your guest list and your budget allows for it.

However, be sensitive when sending it to someone close to you and have a mutual friend realise that he/she didn’t receive a save-the-date card from you. Be sure to double-check your guest list!

READY TO GO!
Time to get creative and get original with your save-the-date card! Navigate through the inspirations on our site and discover a design that suits your personality; remember to mix and match tastefully!
