When should I send out the Save the Dates? (My engagement photos are in September and I would like to use them for our STD’s). However, my wedding is a holiday weekend wedding, so I should send them out earlier than usual?

We’re having a December 3 wedding and sent out our STDs in very late March (about 9 months before) because we know that December is a popular month for most people (Christmas break ups, etc). If you’re getting married on a holiday weekend or another popular time of year, it is recommended that you get them out early to ensure that people keep it free. Most people I know who are getting married on an everyday weekend send them out about 6 months before. How quickly will you be able to get your engagement photos back to make STDs? You might have to forego using the photos if it’s going to take too long.

Is your wedding Memorial Day Weekend 2017? You can send them out in Sept or Oct 2016. That’s plenty of time to save the date! I did the same… I sent mine in maybe early Nov for a May 29 wedding. No one missed it because they didn’t save the date!
