I’m sure this has been asked before but I’m having a hard time finding an answer. Is the year important to put on a wedding invitation? Keep in mind I’m getting married in August and invites typically go out 3-4 months in advance so it seems obvious that it will be this year. I would include it but there just doesn’t seem to be enough space and everything looks crowded if I do.
I’ve “Google Imaged” wedding invitations and have found some with the year and some without….what does everyone think? Have you sent out your invites without a year and was it a problem??

I don’t think it’s necessary, but it will confuse people. Also, your invite is a nice keep sake for you, and I think in the long run, you will like the year on it.

ADogLover: I thought sending mine out without a year would be okay until people started calling after they recieved my save the date without it. We have a lot of people traveling from out of the state/country and that is mostly who reached out to confirm year. If you sent save the dates with the year its probably ok to leave it out on the invite. I wouldn’t stress! I am sure it will be fine either way.

If you already printed them I would say don’t worry about it. But it will prevent confusion so if you’re able to add it, I would.
Misswhowedding: I agree about the keepsake aspect too.

Thanks everyone! I have not printed them yet but I plan to in the next couple of days. I adjusted some of the spacing and added it in and it doesn’t look overly crowded anymore so I think I’ll include it.

It’ll be for memories too. Looking back you or your guest will remember the year you were married.

ADogLover: I think it would be confusing. Even though it seems obvious, people send their invites a couple months before the wedding… some people don’t know a lot about weddings, or thought about the timeline of how things are done.
I would add the date and save yourself some stress.
