Save That Date

Tying the knot in 2014? It’s time to get your big day on some calendars!

Save-the-dates are your chance to spread the good news in a way that is uniquely you.

We love these circus-theme cards from local obsession Honey Paperie and these beauties from Petaluma-based Dauphie Press. Magnets are fun and useful reminders and tickets provide admission to the night of your life. Destination wedding? Send a passport. Go green with an electronic save-the-date from design-forward Paperless Post.

In general, save-the-dates should be mailed six to eight months before the big day to allow guests time to make travel arrangements. You should mail one to everyone who is invited to the wedding and be clear about guests by including the names on the envelopes—it can help you avoid sticky situations when you mail out the invites.

Wording should be simple, just the basics—name, date and place. For the tongue-tied, Letterpress stationer Bella Figura, has wording examples for formal and casual events.

Go radically different or matchy-matchy to your invites. There are no rules!
