Save the Date timeframe?
Posted 04 December 2006 - 05:36 PM
Also, we are getting photo cards (like people do for xmas cards) made from the kodakgallery or snapfish web site for our Save the Dates with 2 pics of us along with a simple save the date message. The price is GREAT & it's really easy! I'm going to create an info sheet for hotel & flights (maybe on card-stock & glue to the back). Most of the photo websites have sales right now before the holidays so we found the cards at a great price.

I sent mine out in October for my May 7th wedding. I wanted people to have as much notice as possible. I plan to send a couple newsletters out between now and the wedding to update people in a hard copy format, but I expect them to check the website for details.
Side note: You will end up calling almost everyone anyway because people simply will not book rooms in a timely manner! So, when you're calling them they will have tons of questions that could be answered simply by them looking at your website. Just wanted to give you a heads up about the frustration we all are currently dealing with!

I just got a website and had the website address printed on the STD's.

I hope that people just continue to look at the website as they have questions, but judging from everyone's experience, it doesn't happen quite that easy!

Or should I wait to send them out in mid January when we return in case there are any extra details to add?? save the date card is just that...you want to give people as much notice as possible to save the date...you do not have to have all the details nailed down. i think the most important thing you can do is have a website on the STD and state that you will be updating the website with more information as you get it
I just don't know how much advance notice people want... the families that we are inviting (my sisters & their kids) want as much advance notice as possible but I am hesitant to send them out before we go down there. I guess I can always send out another info sheet at a later point??

Vistaprint also has very affordable post-cards if you wanted to go that route. Wait until their "Free Offer" and you can get 100 postcards or 25 magnets for free.

Like all the girls said, you don't have to have all the plans set in stone before sending them. All your guests really need to know is the location and the date. Anything else can be updated as the time gets closer.
