Hi, I will be sending my save the dates soon. When sending them do you send them to day guests or evening guests also?
My wedding is May 2020. I will be sending save the date cards in the next month. I am thinking of sending the invites December or January. Is this time right do you think?
I just realised i read your question wrong.
I think just day guests.
Hi Kerry, I haven't even thought that far yet, don't even know who to send save the dates too 🤣. I have heard 3-6 months for the invites x
We sent them to both day an evening guests only because a lot of our guests work evenings
I'm getting married August 2020 I'm sending save the date cards THIS August and invites January 2020, I'm sending invites to both sets of guests just altered to each , ( day guests wedding invites, evening guests reception invites) xx
I get married Aug 2020 and send my save the dates in December as i have a number of people with children/work in a school, so they knew in advance not to book holidays during that time. If you are getting married during a holiday period and you have guests with kids then I would send them ASAP. I sent mine mainly to day guests but you can also do evening but as a save the evening
I'm sending save the day and save the night that way they will understand x
I would say day guests are enough because they need to keep the whole day open, whereas it's not as awkward keeping an evening free when they receive the invite
I just sent to day guests x
I get married in September 2020 and we sent out save the dates out in February as I have friends who live overseas and it gives them a chance to save for flights etc. We also only sent them to our day guests. I hope that helps! Xxx
Save the dates go to day guest and save the evening goes to the evening guests. To save cost I’m just going to do an email or Facebook invite for the evening guests.
I sent save the dates to the day guests only... just sending invites to the evening guests
I sent a text to day and evening guests (we have 200 on our guest list) just giving the date, location, and that invitations would follow
I would just send to day otherwise they might think they’re invited all day. I invited everyone to both. But I’ve never received a save the date for an evening invite.
I sent to both and put on them either, invitation to follow or evening invitation to follow
I'm sending out save the date to my day guests and save the night to my night guests x
We are sending both and have got them made with save the day or save the evening. But only because our wedding falls on bonfire night so people may make plans. However we are giving out our day ones first and then our evening one after
I had separate ones for day & evening guests
Just day because if anyone isn’t able to attend your day you may have space for evening guests to become day guests x
I sent them to both xx
I would as alot of my friends work nights so would need to book the time of even if they are just coming for the evening do, you could always have evening ones x
I did a year before, i sent save the dates to both, but my evening guests ones said 'save the evening' all day guests said 'save the date' xx
We had save the date and also save the night and sent them to the evening guests!!
Completely your choice, most people only send them to day guests only to keep costs down but if you want to send them to everyone you can. I didn't send any, I just made sure the key people had been spoken to in person well in advance so they could book the day etc.
I just sent them to the people I knew I wanted to come to the day, so I knew that they would be able to "save the date".
You then can send invitations out to everyone you want there when you have sorted you budget nearer the time x
We have them for both.
save the dates and save the evenings we did
Day guests only!
I've just sent save the dates for August 2020 as people were asking me. Sent save the dates for day, and save the night for evening guests x
I only sent them to day guests
Up to you though
We just sent ours to day guests
Only to day guests. They're the ones who have to schedule a whole day out for you and they are probably the most important people as well. Evening guests only have to keep an evening free, it's not the same. Plus if day guests can't come, you might upgrade some of your evening guests to day guests.
I’m getting married May next year and sent the save the dates out at Christmas! We only sent them to the day guests xx
Day guests usually xxx
Just day time
I’m not ready to send but I’ve twice received them thinking I was a day guest and then found out right before the wedding I was just evening (which wasn’t do-able due to locations ie. 5hr drive away etc and couldn’t justify cost!) and so I was a little frustrated as ended up not going after looking forward to it I personally will only send to day guests
Hi we just sent the save the date fridge magnets to day guests x
Day guests only 🙂 that’s what we did and when people couldn’t make it we were able to upgrade some evening guests
We did both! All our friends / family will have to travel & stay overnight regardless of if they are day or evening guests, so we wanted to give everyone plenty of notice
I only sent them to day guests. X
I sent our save the dates to day guests only and sent these approx. 15 months in advance. People plan holidays and events wayyy in advance nowadays so I think it’s important to give your guests as much time as possible and it allows for you to get maximum attendance 🥰
We are only sending to day guests. X
We sent to all the day guests and any evening guests we knew might be likely to book a holiday or works shifts including nights
