Save_the_Date Cards __ Typically, save_the_date cards are sent out six to nine months before the wedding date. Schedule your engagement photos accordingly, if you plan on sending a photo save_the_date card. Save_the_date cards do not have to match your wedding invitation suite! Get creative, mix it up and have fun with the cards!
Be timely and create a sense of urgency: Technically, invitations should be mailed 6ξ weeks prior to a wedding. In these busy times 10 weeks has become the norm. However, more than that is too early and can backfire. Instead of making sure people respond promptly, this tactic actually causes most people to put the invitation on the "to_do later" list. Also be careful not to confuse your need for deadlines on the room blocks with the final head count for the caterer. You don't need an official head count until about a month before the wedding for the caterer, seating chart and rentals. It is your guests' responsibility to make travel arrangements and hotel accommodations, so try not to stress too much about that in terms of timing for your replies.
