Is it okay not to send 'save the date' invites out first? Would rather to send the invites out like a year or two in advance when we have the date and venue sorted etc.
Hi you don't have to send save the dates at all it's an American idea :)
We didn't send save the dates, instead I stuck a magnet in the back of the invite so guests can put them on the fridge
I sent save the date cards out last Christmas as a way of announcement for family and friends. And then will be sending invites out in the new year :)
Save the Date cards are a relatively new idea in the UK. We are not sending them although we have told key people the date to put in their diaries.
We are just sending invites a year before so people have plenty of time to plan and we don't have to spend more to send other things out :)
im not bothering...its another faddy idea from the US. sending invites 6 months before too.
