Ceci Tip: How To Write A Save The Date

A Save The Date is a precursor to the event invitation. This card’s details and style should coordinate with the invitation’s details and style. Of course, events range in formality, scale, and setting, so there are many formats for the best wording and structure for any event’s Save The Date. 

The most important part of the Save The Date is to get your wedding date to your friends and family so that they can save it in their calendars and book any flights, if necessary. Every couple is at different stages in their planning when Save The Dates are sent out, so there is no right or wrong information to include, other than your wedding date and location. The rest is just extra, so don't sweat it! 

See below for several examples of varied Save The Date cards and their details.

Standard 

With Accommodations

Notice that the below examples also include accommodations information for guests convenience in your save the dates. We recommend to include this information on either a separate, smaller insert card or if there is minimal information it can be included on your save the date card. 

With Schedule


Notice that the below examples also include a short schedule of events to give guests a closer look into the timeline of the weekend, so guests can plan accordingly. Most couples choose to include the separate card with the invitation rather than the save the date, which gives you a little more time to work out the details.
