What information should be printed on a save the date?
Your Save the Dates will not include RSVP information or details of the ceremony, but will provide your guests with the basics they need to make their plans.
Name of the bride and groom
Date of the event
City or town and state
Additional Info (Optional)
Your wedding web site (if you have one)
Airlines and Airport info
Weekend itinerary (if you have one)
A line placed at the bottom of the card should read “Invitation to follow,” or something of that nature. (Save the Date cards are a fairly recent trend and this will help your guests from confusing this card with your actual invitation.)

What are some creative way to send save the dates?
If you wish, your Save the Date cards may match your invitations in style, paper, and theme. You might, in fact, choose a smaller size of your invitation or a very simple version of your invitation to use as your Save the Date. In these circumstances, it’s wise to use the same printer for both pieces to maintain consistency and style.
