As a rule of thumb, if you have a vast number of guests who will require booking travel, save-the-dates are a must. These cards, which simply state the date of the wedding, are a helpful planning tool in booking travel and requesting time off from work–long before the wedding invitations grace their mail box.If you’re opting to send these personalized calendar reminders, be sure you’re sending to everyone on your guest list, parents, ‘maids and siblings included. Save the dates should be sent out 6-9 months before ‘I do,’ long before the invites go out around the 2 month mark from the wedding. If you’re hosting an intimate hometown affair without a long out-of-town guest list, you’re free to skip sending these paper goods.
