I’m a September bride and with all of this confusion and panic happening in our world, I’m not sure where any of us will be tomorrow, much less abt 6 months from now. Originally, I was going to send out our Save the Dates now-March but March is basically over and I haven’t done so because I’m in a state of anxiousness of the wedding not happening. I know, it’s a “whiles away” but for me personally, no one could see this virus or the tsunami it brought with it just a few weeks ago...so my question is. Should I STILL send them out and should I put a note on it concerning a possible date change, etc. due to circumstances? If so what would you put? Thanks!
My wedding is September as well and I just dropped my Save-the-Dates off yesterday. I also don't feel the need for a note about date changing. It just adds extra confusion and uncertainty to your guests.
I am a September bride as well. My wedding is on a Thursday 9.24.20. So I had to send out my save the dates out in January since people would have to take off work, etc. I plan on sending my invites in May. I would say continue as usual and if your wedding is canceled or postponed. that's when you send a notice but otherwise continue to plan your wedding as usual.
I would send them out anyway. If most of your guests are local and won't be traveling or needing accommodations, you can probably wait and send them out as late as May just to feel more certain about how far along we are in containing the virus and might feel more confident in your September date actually coming to fruition.
As long as you have a wedding website, you can post any subsequent info there, including a note about staying aware of the coronavirus situation. That way your date on your cards is secure, but your guests know it's on your mind and where to be informed should things change.
My wedding is in October, I asked the same question because it might be an insensitive time to send it. However, I consulted with a few people including my FH. They recommended me to send it, so I sent them out last week.
Hi Robyn! I would still send them out. Six months is a pretty good amount of time, and it's good to stay positive and keep looking forward. Getting your Save the Date may even brighten someone's day, thinking about the happy occasion to look forward to!
