Save the dates are a way to let your guests know you will be getting married and to give them a little lead time to keep your wedding date free on their calendars. This is a place to share the basics, not every detail of your day. These save the date wording ideas will help you decide what to place on your save the date magnets.

What should be included?

  • You and your fiancé’s names
  • The wedding date
  • The place (ie. state, country etc) where you will be getting married
  • A note to let your guests know that a formal invitation will follow

What should NOT be included?

  • Your venue name
  • The ceremony or reception time
  • Registry information

Typically, you should post save the dates between eight to twelve months prior to your wedding.
