Show off your personalities

If you’re funny and love writing jokes, go ahead and write one for your wedding save the date! It can be a great way to make everyone laugh and get excited about the upcoming event.

Show off a photo album

It can also be an effective way to incorporate your theme or color scheme from your website on your save the date.

Make the card Picture-perfect

What to include in the card?

Place details like venue and date in a section that is clear and appealing. Your header can include some witty or funny lines.

Other things to include are the venue of the wedding, your wedding website and a note. You can be creative with the note, by writing a joke, or just pop in a short note.

Card wording

When you’re writing your save the date, think of it like writing a short letter. It should be succinct and poignant. Be as specific as possible about the time and date of the event.

It’s also a good idea to throw in hints about how your guests can get more information or how they can RSVP if they’re interested in attending. Be mindful and respectful how you address the guests.

Planning and coordinating

You definitely have a lot of things to include in the card. However, you should make sure you have planned every detail well to avoid last-minute frustrations.
