These pretty Vera Wang Save the Date cards are available Paper & Chocolate.

Thanks to Vicki Peterson from Paper & Chocolate for answering this week’s reader question:

Is it necessary to send Save the Date reminders to my wedding guests? If so, how far in advance should I send them?

“Save the Date reminders are a relatively new addition to the wedding stationery wardrobe. They are not a necessity but it is a nice courtesy for those who need to make travel or work arrangements. Before sending, make sure that the date and locations are final. Keep the card simple but informative and include your website.

Keep in mind that everyone who receives a Save the Date card must receive an invitation so if you are unsure of your guest list, only send the card to those you are certain you want at your wedding. Save the Date cards are generally mailed four to six months prior to the wedding – but remember that they are optional so don’t let them create additional stress.”
