Save the date cards

Let’s face the truth: wedding etiquette is more confusing today than it has ever been. Because so many wedding elements have drastically changed in the last couple of decades, knowing what is and what is not appropriate can be a real challenge for just about any bride-to-be.

·       So, what is the right thing to do when it comes to Save the Date cards in New Mexico? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

·       In general, Save the Date cards are not considered to be really mandatory. They are optional – but, honestly, they are an option we highly encourage on. First of all, they’re a great way to get the word out and announce your future wedding. But even more importantly, it is a polite way of letting people know you would like them to make plans ahead of time, so that they can attend your wedding.

·       If you plan your wedding “at home” (or close to it, at least), you should send your Save the Date cards about six to eight months in advance. This will leave guests with plenty of time to make the arrangements needed for them to be present at your wedding.

·       If, however, you want to have a destination wedding (or a holiday wedding), you should give guests more time to decide and make plans. Ideally, you should send out a destination wedding’s Save the Dates about one year before the Big Day – but nine months should be fine as well.
