Save the Date notices can be simple cards, postcards or even an email. They give guests a 'heads up' about your wedding date so they can make appropriate arrangements to attend (ie booking vacation time off of work, making flight reservations). I HIGHLY recommend them for destination weddings – in fact, the Save the Dates are more important, I think, than the invitations since people need as much advance notice as possible. Ideally, you should send them out as soon as you've made your wedding arrangements.
