What is a save the date card?

Save the Date Cards are the easiest way to give your friends and family advanced notice of your up and coming wedding.  A save the date card contains the date and location of the wedding so guests can make the necessary travel arrangements.

Why do we need to send save the date cards and Wedding Invitations?

Many of your invited guests may need fair amount of time to make the necessary arrangements to be able to attend your wedding.With save the date cards you are able to supply your guests with the date and location of your wedding before the other details are finalized.This gives your guests the extra time they need to take time off work, book flights and accommodation, even organise a dog-sitter.

Do I really need to send a save the date card or will my invitation and word of mouth be enough?

We recommend sending save the date cards for weddings that occur during the summer or near holidays.  We also recommend sending them if you have guests that will need to travel from out of town.  Holiday periods are typically booked months in advance and it is thoughtful to give your friends and family as much time as possible to plan for your wedding. 

When should I mail my save the date cards?

Most save the date cards are mailed 3 months to 1 year ahead of time.  Some couples send  out their save the date cards 1 - 2 years ahead of time if their wedding falls on a busy day such as New Year's. 

Who do I send save the date cards to?

Save the Date cards should be mailed to everyone on your wedding guest list.  If this is not affordable it is most practical to send save the date cards to overseas and interstate guests who will need to make travel arrangements and/or book accommodation.  Households or families with more than 1 guest will only need one save the date.  You should also plan to order extra save the date cards because it is extremely likely that you will add guests during the planning process so it is always nice to have "extras" available.

Save the Date Wording

The wording doesn't have to be anything exceptionally formal. Something like "Save the Date: [bride's and groom's names] are getting married on [your wedding date] in [the city where you'll marry]" is sufficient. This way, guests know what to expect, and they'll get in touch with you if they have questions. Some people include a short poem or a favourite lovey-dovey quote if there's room. This is the time to be less formal, so feel free to go wild. Just make sure that everyone who gets this card will definitely be on your final guest list: Once you tell someone to save your wedding date, there's no turning back. Be sure to include "Formal invitation to follow" at the bottom of your save-the-date card and guests will know there's more to come.
