When should we be sending out save the dates? It's two years till our wedding but we have already ordered them! Also, do people send them to evening guests or just to guests coming to the reception?

We sent ours about 18 months before because I was too excited to wait! We sent save the dates and then save the evenings. We had some family who we couldn’t invite all day, so didn’t want them to think that they weren’t getting an invite! x

We were the same. We booked our wedding in January, for December 2020, ordered our save the dates almost right away and sent them out as soon as they arrived! Got far too carried away I think . We only sent them out to our ceremony/day guests xx

Sent ours out 18 months before and sent to everyone but explained when we spoke that it might just be for the evening!

I’m getting married next April, and I sent mine out back in February/March. Don’t think it really matters, as long as people know! My wedding is the first week of the Easter holidays, so we wanted to make sure people didn’t book holidays, etc. if they wanted to come :)

I haven’t sent my save the dates yet but my mum told me you can send save the dates to all guests because you just put the date and location and no further information. I still have 28 months until my wedding but I want to send everything now 🙈
