7 Original Wording Ideas To Add To Your Save The Date Card

Are you or a loved one celebrating a wedding soon? If you want to DIY wedding prep, you might be thinking about making your own save the date cards. Here's some wording suggestions that you might want to use.


How you announce your plans to marry the love of your life, to your family and friends, is important if you want to guarantee that they will prioritise being in attendance on your wedding day. To give each guest on your invite list sufficient prior notice, it’s good wedding etiquette to send out save the date cards.

Personalised save the date cards let your guests know that you’re tying the knot on a specific date, and all of the basic information about the special event. Your save the date cards must include:

• Your name and your partner’s name

Write out the full names (middle names are optional) of both individuals. For heterosexual couples, the bride’s name is traditionally written first. For same sex couples, alphabetical order is common practice.

• The wedding date
• The location of the wedding venue
• A note letting guests know that a formal wedding invitation will follow

Optional information to add includes:

Details of your wedding website, if you have one. Your wedding website is the best place to list all of the important information that your guests need in preparation for attending the celebration of your wedding day. You can post details of your wedding venue on your wedding website, and travel information that is helpful for guests that live some distance away.

If you’re getting hitched during the prime wedding season, you’ll obviously want to grab the attention of your invited guest, before they commit to attending someone else’s big day. The best way to do this is to feature original wording on your save the date card.

Here are 7 fabulous ideas for your consideration…

1. Formal & Classic

If your dream wedding is a lavish and formal affair this wording is perfect:
Please save the date
for the wedding of
(Bride’s name)
to
(Groom’s name)
July 26, 2021
Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Formal invitation to follow

2. Formal & Religious


For a traditional church wedding, this formal style wording is ideal:
Kindly save the date
of the 26th of July 2021
(Bride’s name)
and
(Groom’s name)
will be united in Holy Matrimony
in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent
Formal invitation to follow

3. Formal & Romantic

A fairytale wedding deserves wedding stationery wording that is formal and romantic.

to celebrate the happy-ever-after marriage and ever-lasting union of
(Bride’s name)
and
(Groom’s name)

4. Informal & Fuss-Free


Not everyone likes wedding wording that is flowery and romantic, some coupes prefer to get straight to the point in a style that is informal and direct…

and
(Groom’s name)
are finally tying the knot!

If you’re planning a small and intimate wedding, with a select handpicked gathering of guests, you will certainly get their attention when you write the following original wording on your handcrafted personalised save the date cards…

Beautiful Bride (name) to wed handsome Groom (name)
Plenty of drinks, bites and bad dance moves!

Original Wording Of Your Own 


Now that you have a general idea of the essential information that you should include on your personalised save the date cards, and a variety of formal and casual wording styles, you may feel inspired to write your own original wording.
Keep it short and sweet, and make sure that you feature the basics. You can add favourite words to infuse your save the date cards with your unique personalities and creativity.

When To Send Save The Date Cards

Once you and your beloved have agreed on a style of original wording for your save the date cards, you’ll need to send them out to everyone on your wedding guest list as soon as possible.
Wedding etiquette recommends sending out save the date cards a few months in advance to allow your family and friends plenty of time to reserve the specific day on their calendar.
If you have guests that are coming in from out of town or aboard, you will need to give them ample time to request time off work, and to make travel arrangements, and to book tickets and a hotel room.


Three to four months prior to your wedding date is the wedding etiquette recommendation for local nuptials. For a destination wedding, six months to a full calendar year is the required notice period.

And don’t forget: if you’ve sent a guest a save the date card, requesting them to block off their calendar for your big day, you are committed to following through by sending them a personalised wedding invitation to the main event.
