Would you believe Paper Passionista is already at work designing Save the Dates for a wedding in 2015? Well, yes we are! But don't panic. Some of you may not have begun thinking about your Save the Date for a 2014 wedding, but it's time to start creating.
The typical window for sending out Save the Dates, that simple (or not) card that gives your guests a heads-up about your impending nuptials, is six to eight months before the wedding. That would mean for an August wedding in Seattle these could go in the mail no later than February but possibly in December. (Many people do a fun photo Save the Date and have it do double-duty as their holiday card if they're sending it in December.) But if you're planning a destination wedding with many guests traveling you may want to send your Save the Dates a year in advance, giving guests time to save and plan.

Now is the time to get planning and ordering, especially if you're doing a photo Save the Date. You may have a great photo of the two of you on hand that you'd like to use, or you may need to schedule a photo shoot for your engagement photos with your photographer. Timing for Save the Dates can sneak up on you, so we just wanted to make sure you keep an eye on the calendar and do your planning.

Save the Dates are your chance to do something fun and more whimsical that gives your guests a glimpse of your personalities. The information included on them can be simple with "just the facts". Your names, date and locale (Maui???) are typically the minimum information provided on a Save the Date. But if you're doing a website for the wedding and wish to provide travel tips for your guests this is a great way to get the word out about the website too. We advise against providing specific information about your wedding venue or start time so your guests won't mistake your Save the Date as the Invitation. Putting a line "Formal Invitation to follow" is always a great idea. You may contact Paper Passionista with any other questions you may have about getting things going for your Save the Date cards.
