Save the date cards - I sent them

It's official now, I sent out the save the date cards. With much help from Julie on this site. I used some of her wording.

I got the paper from Kinkos, it was 5x7 hard paper with the trim of all wedding stuff (cake, veil, limo...)It was elegant, not tacky. I did it on the computer, it was short and sweet and I also put my webpage address on it, so the guests can see more details.

Less than 6 months to go, a ton more to do. I'm going to miss all the planning, but it will also be a relieve. Time to move on to new things.

What's a "Save the Date" card??? Is that ANOTHER thing I have to do? I have less than 6 months too....does that mean I'm late in doing this?

This is what a save the date card is for

If your wedding is on a holiday, if you have a lot of out of town guest or if the wedding is out of town, you should send save the date cards, to request that the guests save the date on their calendars. It also gives them time to plan, if from out of town. Our wedding is Memorial Day weekend and some people may plan to go away. The formal invitations will be sent sometime in February.

Not everyone does it. I hope this helps you.

If anyone has heard anything about them I would appreciate your comments.

After sending them out I felt great, one thing checked off the list.
