When do you send save the dates?
When you send save the dates typically depends on whether your wedding is a destination or a local celebration. For a local occasion, 6 months in advance is appropriate. Consider adding a bit more time (up to 8 months) if many of your guests don't live close by, your wedding is on a weekday, or if it takes place during the wedding or holiday seasons.
If you're holding your destination ceremony in sunny Jamaica or another tropical location, plan to send your save the dates 8-12 months in advance to allow for guests to plan and budget their trips. Use this timeline to learn when to order and mail wedding save the dates.
What do you put on a save the date?
Your save the date card should include, at minimum, your name and your fiancé’s name, the date of your celebration, and the location of your wedding ceremony. Even if you don't have a venue booked yet, you can at least include the town and state if you know where it might be. Then you can include a short statement about how the formal invitation will follow in the future.
Do you send save the dates to everyone?
You should send your wedding save the dates to people you definitely plan on inviting because once those save the dates are in the mail, you can't unsend them. Save the dates are considered a pre-wedding invitation that informs your guests of your wedding date and lets them plan ahead, so only send them to people on the final guest list.
Are save the dates necessary?
Save the dates are a convenient way to give your guests a heads up on your planned wedding date so that they can say no to other commitments, plan for travel (or childcare if your wedding is adults only), and let’s guests know that they are definitely invited to the wedding. If you don’t send save the dates, you run the risk of having people miss your special day because they weren’t given time to plan ahead.
Do my save the dates need to match my wedding invitations?
It's personal preference! At Truly Engaging, we offer complete wedding suites with matching invitations, save the dates, and programs. However, feel free to mix and match between designs, there is no right answer when it comes to your big day.
What if my wedding date has changed?
Sometimes, life throws unexpected things at you and your wedding date has to change. No one likes to think about it happening, but it's good to be prepared for anything. Our customers can make various changes to their designs up until you approve the proof sample for printing. While Truly Engaging is unable to accept returns on personalized products after proof approval, we're here to help. Our team will work with you to make sure you have beautiful stationery for your updated wedding save the dates.
When should I send my save the date cards?
Typically, save the dates are mailed six months to twelve in advance. If you're having a destination wedding, send them at least one year in advance so your guests can plan accordingly.
Can you ask for an RSVP with a save the date?
Typically, you should send your save the dates far in advance for your wedding, making it difficult for your guests to give you an RSVP. We recommend that your RSVP is sent with your wedding invitations, after all of your wedding details are finalized. This will also help your guests remember to send back the RSVP, where they may forget to if they are sent so far in advance.

They came in so quickly and are absolutely perfect! The size is great for not wanting to take up their whole fridge but also remind them to save-the-date! Conveniently comes with envelopes

They came out just as they appeared online. I also enjoyed the order just one option because I had a misspelled word on the one I ordered and caught it before I put my full order in. Overall I am very happy with my save the dates, can't wait to mail them out!
