Wording Guidelines for Save the Date Cards

The moment you get engaged is one that can immediately send your head into the clouds, letting the rest of the world fall away while you focus on the new task of planning the big day. However, once you have chosen to tie the knot, there are a few tasks that need to be taken care of sooner rather than later. First and foremost, you will need to get a date set on the calendar and send save the date cards out to friends and family. This is especially important if you plan to get hitched far away from your home because your guests will need ample time to make travel arrangements. Wondering what wording to put on your destination weddings save the date cards? Here are a few ideas.

The Basics

Every wedding save the date card needs to have a few basic details, including:

  • The names of the happy couple
  • Location of the wedding (city, state, country)
  • Wedding date
  • Venue

You need to let your guests know who is planning to get married and when and where the ceremony will be held.

Add a Personal Touch

Once you have all the basic, imperative info figured out for your save the date cards, add a personal touch by announcing the big day in a unique way. Some ideas include:

  • “She said yes! [Name] and [name] are getting hitched on the pristine beaches of Honolulu, Hawaii. Save the date.”
  • “Kindly save the date for a beachside marriage ceremony uniting [name] and [name] in [location] on [date].”
  • “We hope you will save the date and join us at [location] on [date] to celebrate our union. Travel arrangements and invitation to follow.”

Share the fun of your engagement by incorporating an image of the two of you into the save the date card. Personalize it with an array of whimsical engagement pics. Or, allude to your happily ever after with a romantic design, adding your favorite moment in the background with an overlay of flowing text. After sending out your save the date cards, design your destination wedding invitations with the same style and colors for a complementary look.
