You don’t necessarily need to send out your wedding invitations until around 4-6 months before your wedding date, but with many couples deciding to book their weddings around 18-24 months after getting engaged, it can feel a long time to not let people know about your wedding date!
So, how about sending out a save the date card once you’ve got your wedding date booked in?
Save the dates are a fantastic way of letting your family and friends know that they are invited, to not go away over your wedding day and that you want them to celebrate with you. But sending out both Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations can feel like quite a hassle and not great for the trees either! So why not send them via email!
Now we don’t just mean a quick email to your friends and family saying ‘Yo! Save the 15th August for our wedding next year guys!’
I mean, you are welcome to do that if you would like to! But if you would like something a bit more elegant, with artwork and details personalised to your wedding day, there are several companies out there that help you with this. You can upload your guest list to their website, choose your favourite design (or design your own) and send out your Save the Dates (and invitations) with almost the click of a button. Two of our favourite sites are @Paperlesspost and @Greenvelope. They have a wide range of stunning designs and are both cost-effective and amazing for the environment!
