When to Send Save the Date Video

So when should you save the date videos be sent or shared?

  • For a local wedding, you should send out or share your save the date video at least four to six months.
  • If you're planning a destination wedding, you need to give your guests at least six months to a year advance notice of your wedding date.

You'll need to include all the key information in your save the date video:

  1. The date of the big day, or the weekend of the celebration.
  2. Names of the couple getting married. (Generally full names are preferred, but first names are just as proper for casual and informal wedding celebrations.)
  3. General location of the event and reception

Although not necessary, the following optional information might be helpful to your guests:

Include a formal invitation in your save the date video. Some of your guests may not know what the save the date video is. You should make it clear by adding a formal invitation in your save the date video.
