Wedding Invitations & Paper

Save the Dates

I know you don't have to, but I really want to send out Save the Date cards/magnets. When should I send them?

Re: Save the Dates

  • Will many of your guests have to travel for your wedding?

    We didn't do them, but I think 6 months (maybe 6-8 months?) is the general timeline.

    Just be sure your guest list is set in stone before you send them.  STD = invitation.  No changing your mind later.
  • That's really very considerate.  You can definitely "overlap" your planning with hers.  You may want to just lay low on being vocal about your details if it may cause drama, although you're not obligated to do so.  If it keeps the peace - anything helps.   I wouldn't wait to have only six months to plan, of course it's doable, but it's nice to have more time than not to plan.  Good luck with everything! :)

    [QUOTE]My sister and I are getting married within 6 months of each other (she's getting married Dec. 23, 2010 and we're getting married June 4, 2011). I don't want to infringe on her "space" by sending out my Save The Dates (or doing much planning in general) before her wedding, but don't really want to wait until after either. Can I still carry on with my wedding plans and overlap hers or should I wait and try to fit everything into the 6 months between them?

    </div><div>My sister and I are in the same boat, I am getting married 4-16-11 and my sister is getting married 9-10-11.  We actually got engaged a week and day apart!  We are taking advantage of this and sharing in the experience together!  We even went dress shopping together!  We often shoot ideas off of each other and if something we find is something we think the other will like we share it.  It does help that we have different tastes and colors for the wedding.  I am even helping her design her invites and save the dates!  </div><div>
    </div><div>But honestly, I think the overlap should be fine, it could be a very positive experience for both of you! :)  6 months is a very short amount of time for you to really plan, I am sure your sister wouldn't want you to stress! </div><div>
    </div><div>Best of luck! <img src="" border="0" alt="Sealed" title="Sealed" />
