How to Word Your Save the Dates

Wording your save the dates is incredibly simple compared to wording your wedding invitations. All you need are a few basic details: your names, the wedding date and the phrase “invitation to follow.” We recommend adding the wedding location (city and state) if you can but it’s not required. We also recommend adding your wedding website if you have one. We’ve put together a few save the date wording examples to help you get started.
