SAVE THE DATE!

A save-the-date is a pre-invitation officially announcing your wedding date to let guests know that they will, in fact be invited to your celebration. As a general rule, it’s best to start spreading the news at least six months prior to the ceremony to give your guest’s time to book their travel, find a sitter, take off from work, save some cash for a gift etc.

Think of your save- the- date as a first impression of your wedding. You will want to set the right tone, get guests excited, and send them straight to their calendars to block out your special day. So your save-the-dates should immediately grab your potential guest attention upon opening their envelopes.
