Sample Save The Date Cards For A Destination Wedding

Save the date cards are essential to the success of a destination wedding.

These cards (or magnets) should be sent out at least 8-10 months ahead of the actual wedding.

Doing so will give guests time to ask for vacation from work, save up money, and to make travel arrangements.

Traditional save the date cards and magnets are simple and to the point. The most basic ones will say names of the couple getting married, location, and the dates to save.

In addition, many of the new save the date cards include the URL of their wedding website so guests can get additional information like group rates at hotels, room reservations procedure, photographs of the couple, and other pieces of necessary information.
