I have a question today about Save-the-Date cards. What do you think of them? Are they necessary? My mother doesn't think so. I kind of want to send them because...

1) I'll jump at any excuse to pick out cute stationery and send mail to friends/family
2) The wedding is over a holiday weekend and giving people as much advance notice as possible seems like the polite thing to do.
3) I really want people to "save the date"!

Just for kicks, I looked at some online. These are some of my favorites, all from Wedding Paper Divas.

Cute, huh? Would you send "Save-the-Dates"?


  1. We sent out Save the Dates for our wedding. Unlike my family, which is pretty local to where we are getting married, my fiance's family is spread out all over the country (and a few in Canada). Flying to New York and staying there for a few days in May is not exactly cheap, so we wanted to give our guests plenty of time to look for flight and hotel deals.

    For the past few weddings I've been to, I would say I've gotten save the dates for about half of them. I think they're fun and a great courtesy if you know a lot of your guests may be traveling. When are you getting married? I think I missed that. If your wedding is 6 or less months away, I would say skip them, but if it's more than that, do them. And I'm with you- picking out cute stationery sure is fun!

  2. I think you should do them! If they are in your budget go for it. My fav kind are the magnets, because then I can use it even after you get married.

  3. i have no practical advice, other than i L-O-V-E LOVE the middle two. super adorable!!

  4. I sent STDs because we were inviting a lot of out of towners and we wanted to give them plenty of time to plan their trips!

  5. those are such cute save the dates!!!


  6. These are just adorable! Cute stationery is always a must :) I would say yes to save the dates if your wedding is over a holiday weekend. I'll cross my fingers your mom agrees! :)

  7. I love save the dates! Those that you have picked out are SO cute!!!

  8. Those are just adorable! What a great find, good for you.

    Sending you a smile,

  9. I think we did save-the-dates. We did a destination wedding, & even though it wasn't far was during a holiday week. So we did it as a courtesy, a few months ahead of time.

    BTW, I tagged you in yesterday's post! =)
