Save-the-date is the first awareness about your forth-coming wedding ceremony. The man has proposed, the woman has agreed, they’ve informed the parents and they have given their blessings. The couple to be has met with their families and a date has been chosen. The next thing is to inform people about it. It is a way of telling them simply: ‘This is the date of our wedding’.
WHY DO YOU NEED TO SEND A SAVE-THE-DATE?
So, why send a notification of our wedding date before a formal invitation? You might as well ask. Well, while it is not mandatory, it is important and necessary. The reason for this is that you have given invitees to your wedding a welcomed and deserve proper advanced notice of the event. As such, they can start making adequate arrangement and adjusting their plans to attend. With the tight schedules and loads of similar occasions likely to be happening at the same time scheduled for yours, enough prior notice of your wedding ceremony helps the well wishers keep you in mind.

WHO SHOULD YOU SEND IT TO?
