So I’m super neurotic about the wording for well…. everything! With the Bee’s help, I think we have decided on wording for the inserts for our STD magnets:
We’re getting married and the date is set –
Here is a magnet so you won’t forget!
Now, my question is… if you got this in the mail, do you think the punctuation we used looks weird? Should we use a comma instead of a dash? A lower case “h” on the second line instead of a capital?
Please someone help save me from my overly active brain!!

Since it reads like a mini poem, I’d use a comma. I wouldn’t use the dash. And yes, lower case on the ‘h’.
We’re getting married and the date is set,
here is a magnet so you won’t forget!

I do think the dash is a little weird, but I do a lot of proofreading in my job so I’m pretty sensitive to it. Why not have the first line end in a period?
The wording is really cute.

@pennylou13: @kellykellygg: Thanks ladies! Got it… no dash! lol I like the idea of it being a mini poem and using the comma. For some reason I just didn’t like the look if it when we did it with periods… but maybe that was because the FI made both lines with periods? We changed the bottom line to an exclamation point cuz hey, this is something to be excited about!

@Maurasaurus: Definitely! I’d keep the exclamation mark for sure. It’s more fun + exciting that way 🙂

I would use a comma. But I would probably also skip the insert because people will know what it’s for, unless there is any other info on it. They will know it is a magnet by looking at it and I’m assuming it says save the date somewhere on it?

@MeiFrancis: It does say save the date on the magnet. We are adding that the formal invitation to follow and including our wedding website on the insert as well. It looked too messy all that language on the magnet… plus we figured without all that extra junk, people might be more apt to save them post-wedding. 🙂 Not that I think any of our guests will not realize its a magnet, but I think the poem is a cute touch!
