That’s an awful lot to try to explain on a save the date. What about just putting the port that you’ll be getting married at on the STD? Then you can say something like “For details about the big day, please visit our wedding website at”

No, that’s not too much information to put on a save-the-date. You could send a separate card with that information on it with the save-the-date, if you’re worried about things looking crowded. 

That’s exactly the information that they need, and I can’t think of a better place to put it.

JessicaBrooke926:  I did a very basic save the date card (from Vistaprint) with just our date and venue (cruise ship name), then included a separate letter with more details – travel agent contact info, packages, deadlines to book with the travel agent if they wished to get the group rate, and also info re: the option to attend without going on the cruise. We sent those out about 11 months before our date. I thought it would be a bit crowded to try and include all that information on the save the date card. I also put the same info on our wedding website and referenced the website on the STD card.

I think I still have the letter saved somewhere on my computer if you want to see an example. I can PM it to you.
