Save-the-dates and invitations do not have to match. Typically, save-the-dates are sent out six to eight months before a wedding, while invitations are sent out six to eight weeks before the event. You may not have settled on your wedding theme eight months out, so style save-the-dates as you want.
Save-the-dates do not need to include an RSVP request. They are simply for announcing the event so that people can mark their calendars and plan ahead. Guests are only required to RSVP to when you send out a formal invitation six to eight weeks before the wedding.
Save-the-dates typically include the names of the bride and groom to be, an announcement of the wedding, and the date and location of the ceremony. They do not require pictures, but adding a photo can be a fun way to share your excitement with family and friends.
