FAQs - Save the Dates
How far in advance should I send my save the dates?
Well, that depends on how much you want to torture your guests with anticipation. If you want to drive them crazy with excitement, we recommend sending your save the dates 9-12 months in advance. But if you're feeling generous, you can always give them a break and send them 6-9 months in advance.
What information should I include on my save the dates?
Your save the dates should include the most important details of your big day, like the date and location (duh). You should also include your names, because let's face it - everyone wants to know who's getting hitched. If you're feeling particularly generous, you can also include the city or state where your wedding will be held, especially if you're having a destination wedding or if your guests are not all local.

How many save the dates should I order?
As a general rule, you should order enough save the dates for 75-80% of your guest list. This will give you a good idea of how many guests will be able to attend and help you plan your final guest list. But if you're feeling particularly popular (or paranoid), you can always order a few extra just in case.
When should I send my save the dates?
Ideally, you should send your save the dates as soon as you have your wedding date and location confirmed. This will give your guests plenty of time to mark their calendars and make travel arrangements. Or, if you're feeling spontaneous, you can always wait until the last minute and send them out a few weeks before the big day. Either way, just make sure you give your guests enough notice so they can plan accordingly.
How do I track who has received my save the dates?
One way to track who has received your save the dates is to request an email or phone call from your guests once they receive the save the date. You can also create a spreadsheet or use a guest list management tool to keep track of who has received the save the date and who has RSVP'd. This will help you stay organized and make sure you have an accurate headcount for your wedding. Or, if you're feeling particularly low-tech, you can always just ask your guests directly when you see them in person. Just make sure you have a way to keep track of who has received the save the date, so you don't accidentally invite someone twice (or forget to invite them at all).
