I highly recommended sending save-the-date cards, it doesn’t have to be anything expensive you can make your own is a great way to show off your engagement, add a lot of photos, and have fun with it. Send a save-the-date card to everyone. Friends will appreciate the heads-up and family, your loved ones will block off their calendars accordingly
Mail you save the dates six months before the wedding. This will give guests ample time to request days off from work and make travel plans if needed.
Include on your save the date cards the names of the happy couple. The wedding date. Town, city, region, or country where the wedding will take place. Let guests know that they are going to be invited to your wedding.
