When should save-the-dates go out for birthday?
When do you ship to record the dates of a birthday party? When to send party invitations? Answer: For birthdays or general celebrations, it's best to send out party invitations three weeks before the party date. However, you can send out the invitations six weeks before the party or up to two weeks before the party.

What info do you put on a Save the Date?
The save-the-date should definitely include your and your partner's names, wedding date (or dates, for a wedding weekend), location (a town or city is helpful, even if the venue isn't booked yet) and a notice for a formal invitation to follow.

sending out your save the dates too late
If you are planning a holiday weekend wedding, then 6-8 months in advance is enough notice. For a wedding, where most of your guests are local and you only have a few out of town guests then we recommend the traditional 4 months prior to the wedding.
Not Sending Them
Yes, this counts as a mistake. Although you don't have to send save-the-dates (if you're having an especially short engagement, it might make more sense to simply send out invitations), you're typically doing yourself a disservice by not sending them.
Save the Date with a plus one, use the title Mr. or Ms. with the last name of the primary guest and write “and guest.”
It's traditional to list the bride's name first; for same-sex couples, consider alphabetizing. The wedding location. You've likely booked the venue at this point, but don't include the address just yet. City and state are all that's needed for now.
DO include your names, the location and the exact wedding date. Save the venue as a surprise for the actual invitation and just include the city, state (and country, for overseas weddings). DON'T include reply cards. Unlike invitations, there's no need to include RSVP cards with your Save the Dates.
Save the dates do not have to have a picture, and there are a ton of stylish options that don't. But it can be a really fun way to show off your engagement pictures (or just some cute DIY photos of yourselves), and people love to put your smiling faces on their fridges.
Save the Dates are not only used for weddings, but often other events, such as anniversaries, birthdays, bar mitzvahs (and bat mitzvahs), family reunions, and more.
Save the dates are usually sent only to your day guests. This is to save any awkward situations from arising by ensuring your evening guests don't assume they're invited to the whole wedding day.
