Save the Date Rules and Etiquette
Don’t forget to add that the formal invitation will follow nearer the time and have full details on the wedding.

Make it clear on who you are inviting, this should include a “plus one” for single friends and whether children are invited.

Send your save the dates around 6 months before the wedding, or longer for those guests you know that plan holidays and things way in advance.

Save the Date Wording
The wording to your save the dates can be informal and in most cases just a small note and a to the point message will be just fine. Something like “bride and groom” are happy to inform you that they are getting married! The date and location planned is “your expected date and location” please save this and we will confirm nearer the time.
