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!
Think Ahead: depending on your invitation choices, you may need as much as two months more for design and printing time, so be sure not to cut it too close. Ordering your invites early really saves on stress and money for rush fees and expedited shipping. In the long run, if you can, it is really worth it not to put off printing until the last minute. Also consider all of your components when ordering your invitations. Work with your stationer to maximize your $$. For instance, if your are ordering from a larger printing company we recommend ordering announcements, maps, thank you notes and even placecards at the same time if you can. You save money on proofs and then you also save on one_time shipping for all parts.
