When To Send Out Your Wedding Save the Dates

Planning your Wedding is so much more easier when you have some idea of what to do and when to do it! So in this post I’ll be sharing with you when you should be aiming to send out the Save the Dates for your Wedding…


First off, I should probably start off by explaining what a Wedding Save the Date is.

A Save the Date is a small card that simply asks your Guests to ‘save your Wedding date’!

It typically doesn’t contain much information, mainly your names, your Wedding date and a heading such as ‘Save the Date’, ‘Please Save our Date’, ‘We’re Getting Married or similar.

However, if you’re inviting a lot of overseas guests or you’re hosting a destination wedding you may also want to include the Country and/or City so that your guests can start to make travel plans.

You should aim to send out your Save the Dates at least 9 months ahead of your Wedding date, this allows your Guests enough time to schedule any time off work and arrange any child care if necessary.

TIP: If you’re having a destination wedding, aim to send out your Save the Dates 12-18 months ahead of your Wedding date. This allows your Guests adequate time to schedule time off work, arrange their flights and accommodation and again, any child care if necessary!
