I’m making my own Save The Dates… I am ordering them in the next couple days & don’t know what city to put on it.
Let me try to explain…We have two potential churches, in two separate cities for the ceremony.. so City A & City B. We have decided on a reception hall (which is in a different city altogether so.. City C)
So what do I put on the STDs?Do I put we’re getting married in “the City A/City B area”, or simply “City C” since its already been determined? OR should I be more specific and put “Ceremony Location: To Be Determined… will be followed by a reception in City C?”.. or something along those lines… OR should I just leave it out altogether? The Save-The-Date Cards have our wedding website listed (which explains the location as well)..
I’m not sure what to do. All I know is I need to give my guests a general idea of location since many of them are from Out of Town.
I know many of you will suggest waiting, but we HAVE to get these ordered… for budget reasons and for ease…
Right now I’m living with my Fiance.. He’s in grad school and I am on summer break until Sept (1 more year til I graduate w/ my undergrad degree!!!). As of Sept, I will be moving back home for school (keep in mind, he lives 7.5 hours away from me) and we both know getting things accomplished at that point will be ridiculously difficult.

Maybe you should wait until you have booked to location???

maybe just put the state? i suggest you make a wedding website (you can make one for free on the knot) and include updated info on there. that way, you can put the web address on the STD and guests know where to go for updates, including a confirmed location.

Are any of these cities major cities, or close suburbs of major cities? If so I would just list that central location, wherever people would be flying in to that way they can start looking at flights and then figure out the rest once you have it figured out!

I’d just put the state since the STD is just letting people know the wedding is upcoming & the invitations will give details.

When we did ours I had yet to decide on the actual venue but I knew the state. So we sent them out with the minimal information. Everyone seemed to love them.

Our save the dates didn’t have any information on them about where the actual wedding or reception was going to be held. It simply informed guests of the fact that we were getting married and when our wedding date was.

Thanks everybody! My fiance & I sat down tonight & talked about the pros/cons of each church.. SOMEHOW we were actually able to make a final decision! I was surprised b/c we’ve been talking about it for a while now and never got anywhere.. In the end, we were both leaning towards one church over the other.. makes matters so much easier. I still don’t know what I would have done with my Save-The-Date Cards… It would have been difficult to put a single STATE down because we’re getting married in MN and the reception will be in Fargo, ND. That happens when the fiance lives on the border!! Oh the joy of planning!!
