You’ve finally set the date for your wedding and want to tell the world… but what to say? How to say it? Our best advice is to stay true to yourselves, as individuals and as a couple. A save the date should simply share your excitement about the upcoming day, and convey your sincere desire to see the recipient at your wedding. If you do that, you can’t go wrong!
The design and wording of save the date cards vary greatly, from formal to informal, simple one-sided cards to multiple folds, magnets and postcards. To find a save the date design that fits your personalities, we suggest you simply start looking at ideas. You’ll know the perfect card when you see it. Then you can play with save the date wording.
What to include:
- the date, of course
- formal invitation to follow
- some way to contact you, in case guests have questions or just want to offer congratulations
- photo(s) if it feels right. Remember, not all guests will have met both of you, so photos are a nice introduction.
- a little bit about your story, your engagement or how you met (optional). Many save the date cards have room for text, so you can tell as little or as much as you like.
There are no unbreakable rules for save the date wording, because every couple is different. Start your search by browsing through Pear Tree’s save the dates for ideas. And have fun!
