I’m so excited!!!
Since our wedding is close to holidays we are going to send these out around September to give plenty of notice.
Front & back. Took out last initial. The back matches our invitation.
I’m going to send them out in Kraft envelopes-
& seal the back with a small piece of washi tape
I hope ya’ll like them! 🙂

How many people are coming from out of town? You might want to send them earlier if a lot of people are traveling.
I like your date, and the cards look nice. I think you chose the right picture. =)

peachacid: from out of town maybe 20, but they’re all close family & have already booked rooms. I could send them out as early as August but I don’t want to send them out toooo soon

Cute! We just sent ours out. I know it’s early, but FMIL wanted a year in advance, so this was our compromise.

cls9q: We sent ours in November for a June wedding, but 80% of the guests were out-of-town. I think you could send them as soon as you want — especially since invitations are usually sent six to eight weeks before the date. Eight weeks before 12/13/14 is the middle of October…so you’re going to send your save the dates about a month before your invitations?
Obviously, it’s your choice, but sending them even immediately wouldn’t necessarily be too soon, especially given the holiday time. Did I mention that I love that date?

cls9q: those are gorgeous, that tape is a cute touch. i agree with the PP regarding sending them out a little sooner however. But congrats on your upcoming day

Send them out now! No need to wait, your wedding is a month before mine and I sent mine out (late, in my opinion) early last month. All my guests are from out of town but still, you’ll be sending save-the-dates a month or two before invitations if you wait (which almost defeats the purpose)!
Also I love them, super cute!

I would send them out now. There is no point in sending save-the-dates if they are not sent a sufficient amount of time before the invitations.
Besides, they are very summery looking for a winter wedding. They will look more seasonal sent now.
