Save the Dates…

We came across a great blog named “The Truly Engaging Wedding Blog” who had a piece on save the dates and we thought it was a great idea.  Are save the dates necessary and a few other questions along with answers to them:
1) Do you have to send save the dates?Our Wedding Day Mark Your Calendar Necklace (tm) - personalized sterling silver necklace with pearl
To answer that question…NO!  These are not a necessary item or a must have.  However…they can be helpful!  For instance if you are planning a wedding during busy vacation times like the summer or around a holiday, you may want to send them.  Just make sure that you plan accordingly to give people ample time to prepare.
2) When should the save the dates go out?Ravishing Script Save the Date Sample in Black and White on Pearl Shimmer Luxury Cardstock
We think a good time is any where between 6-12 months beforehand.  The sooner you send them out the easier it will be for out of town guests to make arraignments and any other guests for that matter.
3) What is on the save the date?STELLA Save the Date Sample
You should include the basics, names, date and location.  Plus you might want to include any info that would be necessary for example, phone numbers for accommodations etc.
4) Who gets a save the date? il_570xN_160484061
The only people that should get one are the people you are inviting to the wedding.  You wouldn't want someone who will not be invited to get one, then they and you would feel bad afterwards if they are not invited.
5) Should it match the invitations?il_570xN_253028637
This we feel is a personal choice, there are no “invitation police” that will come after you if it doesn't match.  If you choose to match that's fine and if not that's fine too.  This is really a personal preference choice.

So you decide, save the dates or no save the dates?
