Save the Date Timeline Q & A
Save the Dates should be sent to wedding guests only, since you’re requesting the recipient to set aside your wedding day. Remember to send one to each member of your wedding party, too! Also, it is polite—and practical—to send a Save the Date to your wedding vendors (e.g., photographer, videographer, officiant, pianist).
We recommend ordering your Save the Dates 6–12 months in advance. Before placing your order, remember to confirm all wedding details you included on your Save the Date (e.g., venue, location, wedding website).
We recommend sending your Save the Dates 6–12 months in advance. While there’s no strict rule on when to send your Save the Dates, use the day and location of your wedding to help you decide the best time to send your Save the Dates to guests.
