The whole idea of having guests at your wedding is so that they can share this important day with you. Because they play such an important role in your wedding, you need to make sure that you inform them early on of your wedding plans.
Save the date magnets are a great way of announcing your future wedding to your guests, and it also gives them enough time to ensure that they are made available for the special day. Save the date magnets are a good idea especially if you have guests who will need to travel to get to your wedding.
Save the date magnets are also essential if you are planning to get married during school holidays or around any important events such as the Olympics, big football matches or special times of the year. People usually book their holidays and plan for special events far in advance, so you need to make sure you send out your magnets before they are likely to do this.
Save the date magnets are particularly useful if you are planning on tying the knot abroad. If people are required to spend money on flights and accommodation, and to take time off work, they need to be made aware of this well in advance. It is a good idea to send your save the date magnets four to six months before the big day. If you are opting for a faraway wedding, a year ahead is acceptable.
