Save the Date Wording Ideas

Your save-the-date wording doesn't have to be anything
exceptionally formal. Something like:
"Save the Date: [bride's and groom's names]
are tying the knot on [your wedding date]
in [the city where you'll marry]" is sufficient.

This way, guests know what to expect,
and they'll get in touch with you if they have questions.

Save the date announcements are especially important if you are having a destination wedding (where everyone will have to travel), or have a lot of out of town relatives.

This is the time to be less formal, so feel free to get creative.

Please see my Save the Date page for more examples,
including custom magnets.

Just make sure that everyone who gets this card will definitely
be on your final guest list: Once you tell someone to save
your wedding date, there's no turning back.

Be sure to include "Formal invitation to follow" at the bottom of your save-the-date card and guests will know there's more to come.

Here are a few examples of how people announce their wedding:
