I sent mine out 7 months in advance. I included our names, city of wedding, wedding website, sand date. I think it is really important that you include the phrase “formal invitation to follow”. A lot of our guests thought that it was our invitation even though we included that as well as the words “save the date” large and at the top.

@ShutterbugCait:  I would include the date, location (city is sufficient) and website (if you have one). Generally they get sent 6-8 months before the wedding. You can send them earlier if you have mostly out of town guests.

@ShutterbugCait:  lol, I think she meant “and date”.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m just putting mine together for our late August wedding… they probably will go out at the end of November, so that’s 9 months.  Probably a little early, but whatever.  Summer plans get booked up fairly early.

The front of our has a message and the date, and the back has the date, location, wedding website, and “details to follow”.

We sent ours out 10-11 months in advance. We have a lot of family from out of state and wanted to make sure they had more than enough time to plan ahead. We included our names, date, wedding website, and “formal invitation to follow”. As long as they take the time they need, the important details aren’t needed until the real invitations are sent.

Yup, names, date, wedding website, and town were on ours. I put hotel info on the wedding website at that time, so people could be making their reservations as early as possible.
