Me and my partner are planning on getting married July 2020 we're going to the venue next month to pick a date I was just wondering when you all think the best time would be to send out save the dates
Save the dates about a year before. Actual invites maybe like 4-6 months before
I sent my save the dates a year before to arrive on the date of our marriage x
Is the save date thing new? When i got married 33 yrs ago we just sent out invitations a few months before wedding.
We are getting married in May 2019 and are sending the save the dates now. Reason being is it is in Italy so we want to give people warning
Hi I don't see the point in sending them if you are sending invitations :)
I'm November 2019 and I'm sending mine out a year before then invites 6 months before x
I'd say about a year to 18 months in advance. We're getting married in May 2019 and are planning to send ours around January, but that's because we have lots of guests coming from far away, many of who will need to fly so they need LOTS of notice as well as a physical reminder of the date!
Exactly year before x
Were getting married 2020 we were going to send ours about a year before hand
We're also a July 2020 wedding and we're sending ours out at the end of the year. It's personal choice really but I'm too excited to wait (plus we have family and friends scattered). Xx
weve just planned ours for may2019 and people already cant make it so im sending mine out ASAP its not the full invitation but at least people will know
We are sending ours this week and getting married on the 27th August 2018
We are getting married Aug 2020 and think we will only send save the dates to those abroad ( we have done a lot of Woek overseas so have a lot of friends who will need to book flights) just so they can organise travel in advance and then send invites closer to the time
We get married 2019 and we're not sending save the dates as we have just told all the family but if we were going too I'd send them 18 months before x
We booked april2017 for April 2019 we sent save the dates to our guests about june2017
We sent our approx 18 months before and then invites 12 months later 6 months before. It has worked. everyone who we sent a STD to is coming other than for other reasons.. health and travel etc.
9-12 months before or people just lose them and things change x
A year before and then invites 6 months before x
I get married September 2019 I'm sending my save the dates around August/September 2018 then sending invites 6 months before
I'd do save the dates a year before so that if people need to book time off of work, they've got plenty of opportunity to do so and then invites out 4-6 months before
I'm getting married March 2020 we are sending save the dates 18 months before and invites 12 months before. Just so there's nobody booking hols for then
I sent save the date as soon as I booked my venue. 2.5years in advance to those being invited to the daytime..
I will be sending my invitations out 10months in advance for both day and evening guests :)
I'm sending my save the dates next June so it 2 years in advance for me, and invites 7 months in advance and I'm June 2020 x
Sooner the better if it's abroad. Gives people more time to save up.
No more than a year before. Otherwise, they are likely to get filed away and forgotton about or lost. People are unlikely to book accomodation, flights, time off work or their own holidays more than a year in advance. Plus, friendships and relationships change and so could your guest list.
I recommend downloading the bridebook app - totally free and gives great advice as to when to space things. We are planning May/June 2019 and the app advises December this year for us
We are getting married August bank holiday weekend 2019, I'll probably send the Save the Dates out about 18 months in advance, a bit sooner for a couple of guests who live abroad.
I wouldn't send out too far in advance otherwise the save the dates will get lost or forgotten... unless you have a save the date magnet that can be put on a fridge :) www.etsy.com/shop/jessharringtondesign
