Stop questioning it and send that save-the-date already! 7-9 Points ADD THEM TO B-LIST Send out your first round f save-the-dates to your “A-List.” If people start to inform you they can’t make it, send out the “B-List” invitations. This way you can- make sure everyone you really want to celebrate your wedding day with has top priority. 0-6 Points NO. Skip the invite and just let them enjoy the pictures when you blow up social media with them.
