The Scoop On Save The Date Cards:
What You Need To Know About Save The Dates

save the date card tips Sending save the date cards is a popular trend. It gives your guests the advanced notice they need to clear their schedule for an important event, such as a:
  • wedding
  • bar mitzvah
  • class reunion
  • anniversary party
  • any milestone celebration.
Save the date cards are particularly helpful if you are:
  • inviting a lot of guests from out of town (so they can make travel arrangements)
  • setting the event around the holidays or typical peak summer vacation time
  • having a destination party (requiring guests to work out those plans)
But you can also send save the date cards if you just want to announce the party and make sure you have a good turn-out.


         Usually, 4 months - 1 year before your party or event.

  • If you a planning a Christmas party, you could send a "save the date" at the beginning of November (to secure you're slot in the heavily competitive holiday season) and follow-up with invitations a month later.
  • A more casual event - you can mail an official save the date card 1 -2 months before the event, and then later send e-vites, emails or call with the details.
  • The words "Save the Date" to indicate that it's an announcement that does not require a reply.
  • Occasion - What is the reason for the party, event, celebration?
  • Name of celebrant if there is a guest (or guests) of honor.
  • Date - This should be prominently featured.
  • The phrase "Invitation to follow" (or formal invitation to follow) - to let people know that more details will be on the way.

  • The location - (especially important if it's in an unexpected place).
  • Website - if you have set up a web page for this occasion with information that you update.
  • Photo (or photos) - incorporated into the card design of the person or persons being honored.
DO NOT use the words RSVP - it will confuse people into thinking these are invitations.

IMPORTANT - ALWAYS send an actual invitation to everyone who received one of your save the date cards. You don't have to mail save the dates to everyone on your invitation list. But if you send one, you must follow it up with a real invitation.


The idea is to grab people's attention, so choose save the dates that will get noticed. Even if the event is formal, your save the date announcements don't need to be. You can choose postcards, photo cards, handmade cards or folding cards. But don't limit yourself to traditional paper announcements. You can select save the date magnets, bookmarks or any other small item that is lightweight and easy to mail.

These tips can be used on your website, blog, ezine, etc. AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES AND INCLUDE A LIVE, CLICKABLE CREDIT AND LINK to
