Before sending your wedding invitations, first mail save-the-dates to all your guests about six to eight months before your wedding date. That way they can mark their calendars and RSVP “yes” when the formal invites finally hit their mailboxes. Our favorite part about save-the-dates is they aren't your wedding invitations—in other words, feel free to take a design risk, insert your sense of humor or choose a bolder-than-usual font, just for kicks. Here, a few of our favorites designs to get you started.
