Are you engaged and ready to share the news, but you’re not sure about proper save the date wording? We’re here to help! While save the dates are not required, we definitely recommend sending them. A save the date — sent four to six months before your wedding — does the following: it serves as an official announcement, shares your excitement, and gives your guests advance notice to make travel arrangements, if necessary. It also lets guests know they’re on the list so they can save the date on their calendar. (Note: If your wedding is out-of-state or on a holiday weekend, a save the date is a must.) Today we’re showing you just how easy it is to pick save the date cards with beautiful designs by Paper Peach. Read on to cross this off of your wedding checklist and get the scoop on proper save the date wording! Enjoy!
