Congratulations on your engagement! We are so excited for you to begin the wedding planning journey. You can refer to our wedding planning checklist to make sure you stay on track with your to-dos. But if you have already figured out your date, ceremony location, reception location and time then you are ready to start creating your save the date cards! Save the dates are helpful for letting your guests know the exact details of your big day, and are especially helpful for out-of-town guests who may need to make hotel arrangements.
Save the date cards don’t have to break your budget, either. We have save the dates that cost around $100 for 100 cards – and yes, it’ll be our little secret! (Click on the card to learn more about it.)
From your save the date cards to your thank you notes, all your wedding stationery can have the same awesome look–if you know where to shop! Some stationery companies are known for their formal ensembles, but what if that’s not the look you want? For a more contemporary look, try Pear Tree Greetings, a company that’s known for its modern photo cards and amazing designs.
Your save the date cards are the first things your guests will see regarding your wedding (and may even serve as an engagement announcement for those who haven’t heard the news)! It’s an important piece of information, but that doesn’t mean it has to be formal. If it reflects your personality as a couple, then everyone who receives it will be delighted. It’s not necessary to match your save the dates to the rest of your wedding stationery, but if you can, why not?
If you’re planning a wedding somewhere exotic get the word out with save the date ideas that play right into your theme! Whether it’s a tropical beach or a trip to Vegas, these save the dates let your guests know an adventure lies ahead!

A lot of our guests will be coming from out of state and it will give them more time to make travel arrangements.

Each of these spots shows off the natural beauty of the area and was special to us as a couple.
We hear this question a lot, along with “Does everybody send them?” and “Who do I send them to?” Save the date cards are certainly not required, but they have become very popular in recent years. They are especially helpful if you’re inviting a lot of out-of-town guests or planning a destination wedding, and they are sent to everyone on your guest list about six months in advance of the wedding. Even if you’re not getting married in Bora Bora, save the dates can be used to accomplish several things:
