Here are a few questions that frequently come up regarding save the dates:

Save the dates are usually sent out 6-8 months before your wedding date. This will give everyone plenty of time to get travel arrangements made and prepare to attend your wedding. Every wedding is different and some brides may decide they need to allow more time. As soon as you have a date picked out you can start letting guests know and plan for your special day.
What information should I include on my save the date?
Title: Save the Date
Bride & Grooms Name
Date of the wedding
Location of the wedding (this can be the city, you don’t have to give a specific venue unless you already have this information)
Wedding Website (A wedding website allows you to easily provide additional wedding information such as accommodations. It is very helpful to give your guests as much information as possible. If you have room you can also include this information on the save the date)
