just do the date, city and state…and then maybe make a website and put the link to it on there as well…so then they can all stay tuned with new updates, when, where, who, all w’s!

You don’t need to know the exact location. on the Save-The-Date Cards that I just sent out, we only put the city and the state and the date. The location of the venue will go in the invitation. However, depending on when you decide to send your invites, it might be easier/cheaper to send virtual save-the-dates via email. Maybe some like paperlesspost.com or something would work to send something stylish, but a lot sooner than actual Save-The-Date Cards. Hope that helps!

 

(and congrats date twin!)

lmao this is totally off topic, but when i saw the title of this post, all i saw was “STDs,” and thought, “wait, what?  why would you want to send STDs?” 

and then it dawned on me… save the dates.

Fiance really got on me about sending our Save-The-Date Cards out last month, and we ended up sending them about 6 months before the actual wedding date.  You can just put the date, and city/state/general area.  Now is a good time to send them–a lot of people make vacation plans in the summer and you want them to have a reminder of when your wedding is!

I just sent my Save-The-Date Cards, and I think by the end of January should be fine for sending them out.

I think you should put the date and the place. This will help people get flights early.

We’re sending ours out in the next few weeks  (as I get them finished!), our wedding is in August – which may seem early for some, but the majority of our guests will be traveling from out of town.

I agree with what others have said.  Put the wedding city on the STD. That way if they need to travel, they’ll know what city to travel to.

However, my main concern would be: Are you sure that you are getting married this July 9th?  I’m not trying to be rude or snarky, but it’s hard to find places for reception and ceremony now.  So, I would nail down your sites and vendors before sending out anything official.

I think that sending out the Save-The-Date Cards by the end of the month would be fine.

Well, that makes more sense!

I don’t know just how rural you are, but I would put the nearest big city? (unless you’re a two hour drive away).  If people need to get a hotel or something, I would assume (and hope) they would call you for a recommendation? Then you could give them more information. I mean, I think thats the main reason to put the city down– to make travel and hotel arrangments.  So, if you tell them the nearest big city they will be able to make flight arrangements.
