I think save the dates are usually really simple. The time and after party stuff can wait for the invitation/website.  All you really need is yours names, the date, and the city!  Also maybe the website.

ETA: about the times… I think 6 monthes for the STDs and 2-3 monthes for the invitations.

My save the date (yeah I designed and ordered it already, I had a coupon from Vistaprint! Anyway…) has “Save the Date”, “Saturday May 19, 2012”, “Kristen and Mark are getting married”, “Columbus, Ohio”, and “Formal Invitation to Follow”. 

No info about times, plans, events, stuff like that.  Save the Date literally means that… save the date.  More info will come… and at that time, you share the details like times and after parties.  🙂

We used this template (changed the background colors and the fonts, etc) and put exactly the info that was shown. Short and sweet.

All the details go with the invite.

I agree with the posters above. Names, date, location, website and ‘formal invitation to follow.’ I’d send them out around 6 months ahead, and invites 2-3, like @KristenGotMarried: said.

Ditto what PP’s have recommended. They really don’t need all the details, just the basics.  Keep it simple.

I sent mine out around nine months ahead of time, but 6 was during the holidays and I didn’t want things getting lost.  Agree with PP, only need names, date, city and website.
