If you have booked your wedding with us at Beach Weddings Bournemouth for next summer, you may be thinking about sending out save the dates now. Save the dates are a great idea if you are having a summer wedding. Most people will choose to go on holiday at some point over the summer so by sending save the dates early people can ensure they are not away for your wedding day. We would advise you to send out save the dates anything up to a year in advance. Your invitations should be sent around 5 to 6 months in advance, asking for RSVPs by 2 months before the day so that you have enough time to chase replies so you can have your final numbers 1 month before the big day to finalise catering, table plans etc.
Save the dates are the first glimpse of your wedding that your guests will get! Save the dates inform your guests of your date and location but also set the tone for your wedding, giving your guests a glimpse of what to expect from your special day!
