Fiance and I love HIMYM, so I thought it might be neat to do a themed save-the-date. I’m having a bit of trouble coming up with clever wording for it, though.
Basically, what I have in mind is a making a vector of a suit/tie and/or a formal dress on the front with the words “SUIT UP!” written.. and, on the back (post card, I guess), writing something about how the wedding will be “lengen-wait for it-dary!”
Any ideas on how to word it, or make it somewhat feasible?

I could see something similar to this: http://rlv.zcache.com/black_tie_save_the_date_invitation-p1619280681296415922d8jg_325.jpg
only with a normal tie instead of a bow tie could be really adorable to go along with the Suit Up idea :).

I absolutely love this idea!!! My Fiance and I also love this show and when he asked his groomsmen to be in the wedding, he incorporated “Suit Up!” into it. Very cute idea. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

We don’t watch this show and have NO idea what you’re talking about.
The bow tie thing can still be cute without getting it but your phrasing I don’t even understand what you’re trying to say?

I don’t watch the show either, and am not sure everyone will get the reference.

I love it!! But for the people who aren’t familiar with the show you can add something about the wedding along with Suit up:
“SUIT UP! Cause X&Y are getting married”…
I wouldn’t mind that a lot of people don’t get it cause at the end of the day is something you both like as a couple and everyone will get that it’s a save the date.
Once you put everything about the date and city add something like: “It’s gonna be Legendary!”

Haha, thanks everyone. I know not everyone will get the reference, but I think I’ve kind of figured it out with the help of Coffee cup.
@Coffee cup: Good idea! Thanks. :]

We found a picture online that says “Suit Up….because it’s going to be Legendary” and used it on the groomsmen’s cards. They loved it! I’m sure your guests will, too!

I love it! Those that know the show will think it is awesome, and those that don’t watch the show, won’t know any difference.
I love it when people show who they are on Save-The-Date Cards and invites! So creative!
