We’re getting married in June too, all of our paper products (Save the Dates, invites, etc.) are being designed by one of my college roommates who’s a graphic designer.  She’s making us a post card type save the date, simple, to the point, no extra envelopes needed.  You could also do magnets, or any of the other wonderful ideas out there these days.  We decided to do the Save-The-Date Cards simply to help out our out of town guests, which 90% of them are, that way they can plan for tickets/hotels/whatever ahead of time.

Congratulations!!!

I know what a relief that is.

As for the save-the-dates, have you picked out the style of wedding you want; i.e. formal, semi-formal, casual, etc. Do you want the save-the-dates to convey your theme or do you want to do something totally different. I got ours from magnetstreet.com and was very happy with them. I got magnets so potential guests could stick them on their fridge. I also DIYed and card to go with them and also included one of our engagement pictures. I sent them out 10 months in advance because the majority of our guests are out of state or out of country. You can see an example here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/finished-our-save-the-dates

Save the dates are optional. If you don’t send them, your guests probably won’t miss them. They are just a nice added touch to forwarn people.
