Save the Date Cards Trend or Tradition?

June  2    and it’s Wedding Friday  ! 

Save the Date Cards  

Save-the-date cards are fast turning from a trend into a tradition. It’s not necessary for save-the-dates to match the other wedding stationery themes, making them the perfect place for couples to get as creative as they like. Mail to guests as soon as the wedding date is known (the location may also be included), but know that any guest who receives a save-the-date must receive a wedding invitation.   From Emily Post

Why Save the Date Cards ? 

The ring is on your finger and the planning is underway—time to get your guests in the loop. Your first step: Send a wedding save-the-date card. This pre-invitation officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.

When do you send them ? 
As a general rule, it’s best to start spreading the news around six to eight months prior to the ceremony (even earlier for a faraway destination or holiday weekend). This gives wedding guests plenty of time to book their travel, save a bit of cash and ask for days off from work. Any earlier and they may toss the notice aside. Any later and it might as well be an invitation.
