Save the date

Tying the knot? Make sure the big day is marked down in everyone's calendars with an online save the date. The perfect wedding save the date templates will set the first impression of your wedding for guests and reflect your personal style as a couple. With our easy-to-use online card maker, you'll be able to customize a design that captures your and your fiance's personalities, hints at the style and tone of your wedding, and gets everyone excited to celebrate your momentous day. Additionally, once you have added all your guests' emails, it will be a snap to follow up with Paperless Post wedding invitations.

What is a save the date?

Save the date cards are sent far in advance of your formal wedding invitations to allow people to plan accordingly. The purpose of save the dates is to allow people ample time to make room in their schedules to organize travel arrangements, child care, and take the proper amount of time off of work. Unlike save the dates, wedding invites include the important wedding details including the specific time and location of your wedding day, registry information, and the wedding website (if applicable).

How to make a save the date card

Whether you choose a classic Card save the date or an animated Flyer save the date, it's easy to make your own. From a destination wedding to a swanky city celebration, there are so many ways to personalize your design to match the tone of your event. In addition to editing the colors, fonts, and style of your save the date, you can also reach out to our Personal Design Services team for custom designs. Whatever you need help with, they can make your vision a reality.

Making a save the date should be a fun part of your wedding planning process. With Paperless Post, you are able to explore many different designs and themes or even upload your own template to make your save the date exactly how you want it. All you need to do is pick your favorite design and add the details.

Details for your save the date can include:

  • Date of your wedding
  • Pictures of you and your partner
  • General location of your wedding (city, state)
  • Wedding website (if you have one at the time of sending)

When do you send out wedding save the dates?

One of the most important parts of your wedding timeline is figuring out when to send save the dates. Assuming you aren't eloping to Vegas with 24 hours notice, save the dates should go out to your guest list four to six months before your ceremony. For destination weddings, weddings over holiday weekends, or any weekend that would require difficult travel, send as close to the six month mark as possible if not even sooner than that. This timeline might seem conservative, but keep in mind that you won't have to have your major details set in stone just yet. All you need to share your save the date invitations is your date and the general location.

And since you're sending online through Paperless Post, you can give yourself a little wiggle room—the Postal Service won't delay your delivery, so you can be sure your wedding guests won't be caught unaware. Don't wait and design both the save the date and the invitation at the same time. long as they give off the same general feel of the wedding, the two don't need to match exactly.

Should you expect responses from your save the dates?

Typically, save the dates will not include an RSVP functionality—but Paperless Post will automatically track opens, so you can tell who has and hasn’t viewed your save the date. Your wedding invitations will be the official time in which your guests can RSVP and choose their dining preferences as well as plus one information (if applicable).

How to address save the dates

Once you've designed the perfect save the date cards, you're ready to send to your guests! Wondering how to address save the dates? Follow our simple rules for best wedding etiquette. Think of the personalized Paperless Post email you send as the outer envelope in a traditional invitation, and the envelope your save the date evite comes out of to be the inner envelope. Use both the email wedding save the dates and the envelope to make it clear who's invited, especially if you're sending email invitations to a household with multiple guests. Include both the guests' titles and last names. If you're inviting a married couple, their names can go on the same line (Mr. and Mrs. John Smith). If they have different last names, list the person you're closest with first or go in alphabetical order (John Smith and Emily Rogers). It’s really up to you!
