It’s best to send a Save the Date card after you have reserved several of your most important vendors, and after your wedding venue(s) are set in stone. Don’t feel like you need to send them the day after you become engaged, six to nine months before the wedding date is considered ample time.
There is no proper etiquette as to which form of Save the Date is better than the other (such as stationery vs. a magnet), but always remember that Save the Date cards tell a lot about your wedding. Save the Date cards and wedding invitations helps educate and prepare guests for the level of formality on your special day. Never send emails to your guests if you plan on having a black tie, only stationery will do. If you are having a casual wedding, an elegant email to close family and friends can be appropriate.
