Correspondingly, how late is too late to send save the dates?
Sending Them Too Late As a general rule, it's best to start spreading the news around six to eight months prior to the ceremony (send them earlier for a faraway destination or holiday weekend). This gives wedding guests plenty of time to book their travel, save money and ask for days off work.
Also, do I really need to send save the dates? Usually, couples send out save the dates a few months after they've gotten engaged and have decided on a wedding venue and ceremony date. But they're hardly mandatory, and for some couples, they might not even be necessary.
Also asked, how long before the wedding do you send save the dates?
Send out save-the-date cards six to eight months prior to your wedding and the wedding invitations eight weeks before your big day.
Do you send a save the date to your photographer?
You've probably wondered if you should send a save-the-date and invitation to your wedding vendors. While I can't speak for anyone else, there's actually one good reason why you should sent them to your photographer – he or she can photograph them so there's one fewer thing to remember to bring on your wedding day.
