The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are one of the most popular times of the year for couples to get engaged. (In fact, my very own brother-in-law got engaged to perhaps the most wonderful girl over the holidays. Congrats Steven and Lauren!) So January and February = Save the Date time at The Green Kangaroo!
When should I send Save the Dates?
Save the Date cards should be sent no later than 6 months and as early as 12 months prior to your wedding date.
Why should I send Save the Dates?
With the busy, busy schedules and increasingly far-flung support networks of our modern age, Save the Dates have transformed from a luxury into a near necessity. Itâ€™s important to let your invitees know to get your wedding date on their calendars. And if youâ€™re planning a destination wedding, or even an event where many guest will have to travel, providing a Save the Date that includes travel planning information is a much-appreciated courtesy.
Who receives a Save the Date?
Send a Save the Date card to everyone on your wedding invitation list. Even if youâ€™re sure your grandparents and great aunts are well aware of the date, theyâ€™ll surely want to be included as recipients of this special wedding memento!
So if youâ€™re getting married anytime between this June and next January, the time to send Save the Date cards is now!
