Save the date cards.... day time guests only or all guests?
That's what I have put, day time only guests :-) xx
I'm planning on doing both! There are lots of people that we want there, even if they're just invited to the evening due to number restrictions! A save the date makes sure they don't have any other plans or holidays booked :) xx
I asked this yesterday too. Theres some good replies on mine if you can find it. I am going to go for save the day and save the evening. X
I am doing it for both, I've done 'save the date' and then 'save the date for the reception following the marriage' and then at the end of both put 'invitation to follow' x
Our wedding is 22nd December so to avoid people booking Christmas parties we have sent save the dates and save the evening cards so there is no confusion but everyone will know not to book anything on that date x
I didn't do save the dates, just sent invites out 6 months before to give everyone plenty of time to plan :-) everyone already knew when my big day was anyway (too excited and couldnt keep it to myself!) I only had 5 out of 50 people decline so it worked out pretty well.
Most of my friends and family have done save the dates but only for day guests - no harm in doing some for the evening guests as well. At least you have given everyone as much notice as possible :-) X
Daytime guests. If you send to evening guests they may think they're invited all day. Some evening guests may work on the day you're getting married so if you ask them to save the date they may book a days holiday then won't receive an all day invite. I understand it's so people don't book holidays at the same time but most of your daytime guests will know when it is anyway. This has worked for us but everyone is different x
I just did Save the Dates for day guests. I'm sending invites to my day guests first & if anyone can't come, I can then invite some off my evening list to the day!
Save the dates for day guests and then 6 months before will send out evening invites X
Most couples only do Save the dates for day guests. But if you wanted to do them for your evening guests, then you can put 'Save the Evening' just to make sure!!
We did just daytime ... x
I replied to the one yesterday, I have sent save the dates to all however my all day guests Ines say "formal invitation to follow" and the evening only guests ones say "evening invitation to follow" x
I did both, but they did not work. My wedding is 22nd July and although I sent the save the dates out a year before and then the invites 6 months before, people still booked their summer holidays etc. X
do 2 separate and specify day or evening.
We did save the dates for all we wanted to be able to come, and then seperate invites for day and evening
We did them for all guests
Hi I would give them all guests works out cheaper x
I just did day time guest x
I would say day guests only x
thanks for all the advice ladies... I wish i could just invite everyone to the full day and evening xx
I am just planning on doing them for the day guests x
We did just day guests and put hotel details on the save the date so they could book a room before evening guests x
