Ask Andrea: When and why should we send out Save-The-Dates?

A somewhat new wedding trend, Save-the-dates are the first thing your guests see when it comes to your wedding. It can be a nice little teaser of things to come, and is really meant to serve as a heads up for the date and location of your wedding. They are especially good for destination weddings so that guests can look into their travel arrangements. As far as when to send them out goes, too early and people will lose them, too late and there’s almost no point. I would suggest sending them out six to eight months before your wedding, but don’t freak out if you send them five months before, that will still be okay. If you’re working with a tight budget, you can also do without the save-the-date entirely, or you can make it in a postcard format, that way the postage is less!
