Plenty of couples are now sending out Save The Dates before they send the official wedding (or engagement!) invitation. Why? Because most of us don’t get down to finalising our wedding invites till just a month or two before the big day, but we do want guests to block those dates for us.

How to Word & Send Save The Dates

You can have Save The Dates printed and mailed to your entire guest list, or you can choose to send a digital version via Whatsapp or email. Either way, the wording is fairly straightforward –

Save The Date

For the wedding of {Bride & Groom}

{Date & City – or venue if you’ve already booked it}
