UKbride Member 11 May 2020

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I wouldn't bother with save the dates as a wedding planner we don't advise people ease their money just send invites 6 months day guests 4 months for evening xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

1 year before. We did our save the dates and invites on vistaprint with voucher codes so it didn’t ‘waste’ a lot of money like people are saying. I think the save the dates were like £20.

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I'm glad I sent save the dates. I havent sent my invites yet as my wedding is supposed to be October but who knows now!

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I didn't send them out. Just sent the invites early. I sent my invites out around Christmas, as I knew I would be seeing family. For a May wedding. I made all mine, so ment I only needed to make one invite.. well, 150 🙈

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

Didn't need to. My mum told everyone I'd ever met (and several people I haven't met). 😂 Gave them all date, time and place. Anyone could turn up....

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

12 months before

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

Set up a website and send digital save the dates.

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

Save the money and just sent invites slightly earlier xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I wouldn't say I 'wasted' money on mine as I made them myself, I bought blank magnets and printed photos myself to put in them cost just over £10. A nice keep sake that we gave out 18months before as its August Bank Holiday weekend, we'll we're hoping will be, not looking like it though this year 😔 xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

Did a cute video using iMovie, uploaded it to a private YouTube channel and sent people the link. The older members of our family, who aren’t on social media we just told in person. Did it just under a year before

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

We are getting married September next year and we sent ours out December just gone

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I sent mine out a year in advance and sent my formal invites 6 months before xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

We did a Facebook save the date group as we booked our wedding 6months before it was supposed to be. This made it quicker in case people were looking at booking holidays.

They usually go out around a year beforehand but if you are getting married during typical ‘holiday’ periods (like Christmas/summer) it might be a good idea to send out a bit earlier so people don’t book holidays that clash with your date. xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

18 months before. Lots of people said it was far too early but we have people coming from all over the world so just sent them all at once

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

Over a year before wedding, most people will b travelling 2 wedding so they need 2 book accommodation x

UKbride Member 11 May 2020

I've sent mine out today for October 2021. Something to look forward to in these mad times xx

UKbride Member 11 May 2020
