Maybe just put a note on the Save-the-Date cards that hotel information can be found on your wedding website as it becomes available.

I just put the wedding website on the save the date, and then put the link to the hotel reservation on the website. I would definitely wait until the block is set before putting any information out. Is there a reason you are sending them out so early? I sent mine out about 6mos in advance, but that’s because over half our guest will be traveling.

If you’re doing it somewhere where only half will be traveling then 6mo is fine. You can add the hotel info on the save the dates once you book the room blocks.

trinagogo :  just make a wedding website. You can put the url on your Save-The-Date Cards and then update the website with hotel info as it becomes available.

I would absolutely recommend including a wedding website link on your save the dates, much easier than putting all of the info onto them. I have never seen any information about accomodations on save the dates, as it usually takes up an entire card in your invitation suite.

6 months should be fine if that’s your only option now.

Oh! Month twins. Also getting married August 2019 and we just bought our save the dates and plan to send them in next couple of weeks. It’s not too early to send, especially with a fair amount of out of town guests. The larger the guest list the sooner I would send considering that’s more people who have to pencil you in  

 

I would suggest just adding the hotel info on your website when you have that information. Out of town guests will probably reach out for info anyways.

I would do a website and include local hotels, but your guests are adults, they know how to book a hotel. You don’t need to do it for them or hold their hands while they do it.

My nearest guest is 4 hours away by car. Literally it’s just me and my parents and sisters in-town. XD I’m sending the Save the Dates 8 months in advance. On the bottom of the Save the Dates is a little note saying “Visit our Website at (website address)” 

On the website is all the information our guests could possibly need, from dress formality, hotels, good travel routes, best airport, and all that good stuff. 

I suggest you do that too 🙂

My wedding is September 2019 and my wedding planner wants me to send out my save the dates before end of November so no you are not too early. She is super organized and prefers things done early so we can get an idea of who can come and who cannot and also it’s one less thing off our list. 

In addition just do a link to your wedding website I know you don’t want to make one but it’s so much more helpful. The only thing that should be on your save the date is the date your names the city and state and either formal invite to follow or the link to your wedding website.

I would go the website route as it is a lot easier. Double sided save the dates will make them more expensive as well.
