Do you send Save the Dates out to only the day guests? Or evening guests too? And when is the right time to send them! I get married August 2021 and was thinking of sending them out next month?
We are just starting to give our save the dates out now for our wedding on 31st January 2021.
Anymore than a year I think people will forget, often people can't book holiday from work more than a year in advance anyway.
Also there's bound to be those people that think it's August THIS year!!! 🙄🙄
Of course, I'd say if you're going abroad the more notice the better for people to save money!
We sent out save the dates and save the evenings, that way everyone knows the date to book off and no one gets confused. ☺️
We done save the dates and have just sent ours out we are getting married june 2021. We only done the day guests.
Also we done magnet invites that way people put them on their fridges.
We just sent ours out to the day guests we sent them in Nov last year and get married in Nov this year xx
I sent save the dates for both day guests and evening guests x
We only sent our day ones as the evening guests will have their proper invite with enough time. I’d say save the dates are best sent out 12-10 months prior so I wouldn’t send yours out till after August 2020
Just day guests - we are getting married this November and only sent ours out this week. But it definitely depends, if you have lots of family/friends travelling, you want to give as much notice as possible! 😊
I did both but each specified whether they were day invites or evening invites
Save the dates to the day guests and save the evening for night time guests
We only sent to day guests. Sent ours out really early to give people plenty of notice (about 15 months before the wedding) but some people did think it was 2019 rather than 2020 despite being on there x
Save the dates are usually for day guests and are usually sent 12-18 months before the wedding. If you want to send to your evening guests then you’ll need to change the words as a save the date suggests a day invite. Save the evening is becoming popular to use too.
I’m a wedding stationer but on a personal note, I’m hoping to book my summer 2021 holiday in April 2020! Just something to bear in mind 🙂
We only sent to day guests and our full invites went out 3 months before wedding. Plenty of time for evening invite response. I think for a wedding August 2021 you shouldn’t send out save the date until 8/10 months before
I just sent mine on Facebook - about 8 months before.
I’m also August 2021 and planning on sending save date and evening in next few months
Save the dates I sent to day guests only and I sent them 18 months before x
Some fab advice here thank you 😌
I sent out colourful save the dates with lots of greenery to the daytime guests & evening themed save the dates to the evening people (making sure their card specifically said evening)
We did a save the date to everyone. We did it around 18 months before the wedding.
We did a Facebook event about once the date was set
We're getting married August 9th 2021 and I have mine ready to send out. We're only sending to the 40 for wedding will do rest later in year xc
I'm getting married same time and already sent save the dates
We sent to our day guests only, and sent them 21 months in advance, our invites are going out 6 months before as need numbers back to the venue 10 weeks before we get married
We sent ours 12 months before the wedding. 😊
1 year before for save the dates and 6 months for invitations for us. But I don't think there's a rule really!
I done mine a few months ago, just to day guests. Getting married July this year, invites are being sent out next week xx
I didn’t do any 😂 just told people and it spread so everyone knew. We haven’t sent invitations out though yet either for May this year 😂 it’s up to you. Traditionally it was word of mouth then 8 weeks before you send them. Now with the need for meal choices etc I’m hoping to give them out this week. Then RSVP in 3 weeks time end of month. Then chase for a week or so. Then that’s it 😂 numbers confirmed or not! x
We didn’t send save the dates, although think I emailed some people haha, but sent our invites in January and got married in August x
We sent out for both as we're getting married mid week so guests needed to know to book the time off
We get married October 2021 and I've just started handing ours out, we're doing them for day and evening guests. Personally i dont think you can ever be too organised ☺️
We just sent them to day guests.
To save a lot of carry on I sent wedding invites out in November last year (get married August this year) instead of save the dates then invites 🙈just wrote rsvp by 11th July (6 weeks before wedding) xxx
I'm also getting married August next year! And i sent mine out about 3 months ago just to the day guests 😂 As soon as we booked the date I ordered them and we just got excited and sent them out as soon as possible. We're also getting married on a Thursday and as its August we just wanted to make people aware in case they were booking holidays.
Ours are magnets so hopefully everyone will just keep them on the fridge :)
Won't be sending invites out until much closer to the time
We are getting married on 31 Oct this year and sent our save the dates out with Christmas cards we are not have day and night guests as our wedding is at 5pm so everyone is for the whole thing
We are getting married next year (October) in Cyprus we have ordered our invites and are sending them out next week when they have been made. I think the sooner people know the better. More likely that they will start to plan around your wedding then especially as yours is in peak holiday season (if that makes sense). Soo exciting!!
We are terrible, we have sent a quarter of our save the dates out in the last week and not even thought about invitations yet, we get married on the 11th of July this year 🤦♀️🤦♀️
I ordered too many save the dates cards by mistake therefore I gave them to everybody
We didn’t send save the dates as just adds cost. We text or spoke to the really key people and then sent invites out this week, we are getting married in September so plenty of notice.
I sent them to the day guests only about 15 months before the wedding, then invitations went out about 6 months before
On average it's 8 months prior save the date, 6 month prior day invite 4 month prior evening invite .. I work part time as a wedding planner, and this is the rule we tell our brides, as invites are easily miss placed, who wants a invite on their fridge for 16 month realistically xx
We sent ours as soon as we secured the date with the venue. Our wedding was a weekday in the summer holidays so we wanted to give as much notice as possible. Good luck! Xx
Invitations usually 6 months before, save the dates 9 months. If not se dong save the dates, send invitations earlier
Waste of time and money. That could go towards something better. Just send invites earlier. Just my opinion.
You can do 2 separate save the date/Invites. One can have both the ceremony and reception details and the other one has just the reception. That way everyone gets an invite and people will know what to go to.
The more notice you can give the better I think. People book holidays way in advance
Ive done it to just day guests as there children my cousins are in the same family they will no the date
We get married october 2021 Sarah Stovold what date is yours
