Hiii Everyone! I am getting married in March 2022. I am thinking about sending the Save the Dates in March 2021 because restrictions will start to lift & I want to give people enough notice. Is this a good idea? Also, are you including your wedding website link on your save the dates?
Including a link to your wedding website on the Save The Dates is a good idea! Typically, Save The Dates are sent 6-8 months in advance (8-12 months in advance for destination weddings), but I don't see anything wrong with sending them a year in advance at the moment. Since so many people are postponing due to COVID, it may help to get your date on your guests' calendars early.
Our wedding is in Jan. 2022, and we're sending our STDs out in April. I think a year in advance may be a little too soon to send them out, only because there's a greater change your guests will lose the STD, or forget about it. But it def. doesn't hurt to send them out if you want to give them enough time to prepare!
We're including our wedding website on our STD! It's a great way to introduce your guests to the wedding details, photos, registry etc!

That definitely makes sense! Also, Shelly brought up a good point - by sending them out early, you do risk your guests losing them or forgetting about them. One thing you could do to help with this is get Save The Dates that are magnets - this way, guests can stick them to their fridge and they're less likely to get lost!
Save the dates typically go out 6-8 months before the wedding. 10 months if it is a destination wedding. I think 1 year is a little too early. People will likely lose it or forget about it an entire year in advance.
We sent ours out a little over a year in advance. We'd gotten a lot of feedback from guests that they knew other people getting married around the same time as us and people kept asking for wedding details so they could get our wedding on their calendar. Whatever works for you works.
