Save the dates too late??

Cara, on December 1, 2022 at 11:38 PM Posted in Planning 1 6
Okay so we’re getting married on May 20th 2023, is it too late to send save the dates or should I just do invites? Half of our family needs to travel from PA to TN. Also when should I send the invites ?

    I mean they still have 6 months to save the date. In my opinion, no it's not too late at all.

    It's not too late to send STDs, but you could always just email your family and give them a heads up. Otherwise, invitations should go out by mid-March.

    It's not too late, but I would send them out asap. Invitations shouldn't go out until 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding.

    We were only engaged ~6 months and didn't do STDs. Just a waste of paper and money in my opinion. I would just spread the word to family and friends who are invited when you talk to them, or via text or email. You could also do an E-vite type STD if you wanted something a little more specific than an email.

    Joy or App-y Couple would be a way to do those electronically and save money that would have been spent on paper STDs.

    Save the dates are frequently sent by word of mouth via phone call or text. Some people say that word of mouth is not a valid save the date but that is how many people send them because they don’t do postcards. They are sent 6-12 months before the wedding as soon as the venue is booked (and guest list is set in stone before you look for venues). They are sent to all invited guests. They are followed up automatically at 6-8 weeks on the dot with the invitations.
