How It Works

Announce your big day, your way.

From custom Save the Dates that match your free website to a guest list ready for all your details, this is the smarter way to plan your big day.

1

Create the perfect design for your big reveal.

Start with a stunning design template and turn it into personalized Save the Dates in the time it takes to say “I do.” Select fonts, colors, and art to make your own design. Craft a classic with an art deco style, make a splash with watercolor greenery, or go simple with a minimalist design with clean typography.

2

Share your love story with a free wedding website.

Remind family how you met, display your favorite engagement photos (or video), and share any important info you’ve solidified, from your wedding date and location to travel booking tips. The best part? Your website can grow and change as you solidify your plans.

3

Send out Save the Dates that help save the day.

With easy Add to Calendar, your guests will be sure to get you in their schedule. When you’re ready to send, you’ve got a head start on your wedding planning, from managing plus ones to powerful RSVP features, even address collection. All tracked by your Connected Guest List.

Frequently
Asked
Questions

Is it okay to just send online Save the Dates?

Yes! More and more couples are choosing to send digital Save the Date invitations to save money on wedding stationery. It can also make wedding planning easier by automatically updating your guest list and online wedding RSVP system. Just keep in mind that you may need to remind some of your less tech savvy guests to check their email.

Do I put my wedding website URL on Save the Dates?

Though not required, it’s certainly helpful. Because Save the Dates should be sent out 4 to 6 months before your wedding day, and are considered less formal than printed wedding invitations, it’s best you complete your wedding website by that time. This way, you can add the URL to your Save the Dates and give your guests plenty of time to absorb all your wedding details.

When should we send our Save the Dates?

Whether they’re printed or digital, try to send your Save the Dates at least 4 to 6 months before your wedding date. But if you’re planning a destination wedding, you should send them around the 9-month mark to give your guests enough time to prepare, request time off from work, and book travel and accommodations.

Are Save the Dates necessary?

While it’s ultimately your decision, we highly recommend that Save the Dates are a part of your suite of wedding announcements. This way, you’ll ensure your guests have access to the who, what, where, and when of your wedding as soon as you’ve determined these details. Plus, by including your wedding website link on your Save the Dates, you’ll enable your guests to learn more about the wedding and RSVP online.

What information should our Save the Dates include?

Our recommendation is to keep it simple. Include just your names, the date of the event, and the city or area where your wedding will take place. Many couples also choose to include a note that formal invitations will follow in the future.

Can guests still RSVP online if we send paper invitations?

Yes! Just include the web address of your wedding site and guests can easily RSVP from your welcome page.

What about all of our other print needs?

Our print partners offer RSVP cards, thank-you cards, and wedding cards as well as invitations for events such as your engagement party. To keep our process simple, and our environmental impact low, we only offer templates for Save the Dates and wedding invitations.

Do you have a support team we can reach out to if we have questions?

Absolutely! We have an amazing support team that works hard around the clock, every day of the week, including weekends, to make sure that your questions are answered. You can chat with us on the Joy site, or you can send us an email to support@withjoy.com.
